Russia’s invasion of Ukraine was a reminder to the world about the threat of war. More and more, wars are a matter of who has the best technology at their disposal, and innovation is key in associated sectors such as aerospace/defense.
On the space front, there’s also innovation taking the sector to a whole new level: space 2.0. The advent of disruptive technology like artificial intelligence and machine learning could bring transformational change to the aerospace and defense industries.
“The defense and aerospace industries – as well as any company considering space-based applications – need technology that can provide the necessary performance, adaptability, and reliability for Space 2.0 applications,” a Military Embedded Systems article said.
“Space 2.0 represents a major shift in the development of defense and aerospace applications,” the article added. “With artificial intelligence (AI) applications moving aboard, systems must support higher processing and throughput capabilities. On-orbit processing requires an adaptive architecture so that systems can process, analyze, and reconfigure themselves to optimize performance and responsiveness.”
Trading the A&D Industry
As more innovation pours into aerospace and defense, traders can consider its growth potential. Furthermore, traders can get amplified gains worth three times the exposure of a fund’s index using the Direxion Daily Aerospace & Defense 3X Shares ETF (DFEN).
