For decades, the aeronautic, space, and defense industry has produced decisive and groundbreaking innovations with spillover effects
in many other areas of human life. More recently, the digital industry has taken on the role of the major global driver of innovation.
However, our analysis clearly shows that the A&D industry is again at the beginning of a technologically driven transformation in all
three sub-segments and is increasingly resuming its historical role as a driver of innovation. The megatrends accelerating this development are
the decarbonization of aviation, the rapid commercialization of space, and the multi-domain networking of the resources on the battlefield.
