“This transformational shift adds a level of complexity and innovation that requires satellite manufacturers and their supply chain partners to rethink how we design and build our satellite systems. As a result, the supply chain management required to support the scale and complexity of constellation projects is becoming exponentially more technology intensive,” explains Mike Greenley, CEO, MDA.
In response to this challenge, MDA is seeking to transform its supply chain operations by leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) to support the volume production of its space products. The solution will optimize supply chain inventory, manufacturing schedules and performance during the production of the satellites and their subsystems.
Scale AI investment
“Today’s satellite market is rapidly pivoting from launching a small number of largely independent satellites to deploying hundreds of satellites in constellations working together as a single system.”
