The drone industry is growing at a staggering rate. It aims to be a USD 2 billion industry with a CAGR of 15% by 2026. In the next 3 years, the economic and employment opportunities are set to multiply by 3x and 6x respectively. This accelerated growth is supported by engineering advancements in sensors, optics, materials, design technology, etc. This has widened the scope of drones in a variety of sectors including defense, urban mobility, emergency services, agriculture, etc.

Sensors, controllers, motors, navigation systems and hardware are key components of a drone and have evolved over time. The materials are now lighter, more durable; the electronics more compact and reliable; and the optics now have a broader range of capabilities. The advancement of sensors and software upgrades now boosts hardware performance. Simulation has had a substantial role to play in this journey. Simulation has reduced the testing time of drones to less than 50%. Weather, wind conditions, load factors – all can be simulated, and the performance-reliability ratio could be determined. Overall, reduction in product development time, cut down of production cost and a steep rise in safety and reliability are all boons of simulation.
With the government now taking steps to nurture and speed up the drone industry, simulation experts like Ansys are willing to contribute to making simulation smoother and effectively upscale this industry. The Ansys Startup Program is enabling hundreds of young ventures to expand their line of business using technology. Drone manufacturers are embracing Ansys for their designing, analysis, and certification purposes.

This webinar is meant to bring together engineering leaders and technology experts from the drone industry. Drone startups will be a part of the webinar to discuss their adaptation of simulation. Participants would also get a chance to interact with esteemed speakers and professionals contributing to this area.
