Digital Twin Community of Practice – Flares Investigation Tasks

19/Oct/2023 @ 9:30 am - 1:30 pm

What this is – This a new TD-info, industry, and MOD collaboration project to define and demonstrate the viability of Digital Twin benefits for MOD countermeasures (Flares).

Why? – The field of Digital Twins as a whole hold’s incredible possibilities within the entire Defence landscape. In the case of air countermeasures – specifically flares – the ability for them to provide a decoy is a well-established concept and has been in service in the RAF since the 1960s with the Vulcan bomber. Not only is it relevant for today as a countermeasure, but it will also be relevant for the foreseeable future. Digital simulations and representations of flares systems have the potential to provide the MOD with an improved design, test, evaluation and through life support capability for its countermeasure assets. MOD have selected five topics for the Digital Twin Community of Practice to help them understand new approaches.

Project Strands Statement of Requirements will be briefed by MOD on…

  • Strand 1: Safety Trace
  • Strand 2: Environmental Testing Review
  • Strand 3: Consultation over Design of Experiments
  • Strand 4a: Composition – Combustion Modelling
  • Strand 4b: Dynamics Of Mixing
  • Strand 5: Asset Tracking

How and When – The full briefing via ‘Teams’ by TDI and MOD Project Strand Task Leads is on Thursday 19th October, 9:30 – 13:30. Please follow the link at the side of the page to register.

Why get involved? – Your contribution will enable you to understand the direction of travel from within Defence, shape, influence and assist towards MOD countermeasure development. There is also an event to work as part of a Team with equally capable and knowledgeable organisations within Defence and the wider digital community. This is also an opportunity for other industry experience and best practice to be showcased within the Defence environment.
