Boston Consulting Group: Ascending to New Heights in Aerospace and Defense

Top 10 Aerospace and Defense Consulting/Service Companies - 2021

Indeed, the global aerospace and defense (A&D) industry will likely look back at 2020 not only as a year of great disruption— due to the COVID-19 pandemic— but also as one that triggered profound reinvention. The A&D industry has always been known for its achieving extraordinary technical advances. A few of the innovations, like the Global Positioning System (GPS), Boeing’s Joint Direct Attack Munitions (JDAM), the Airbus A380 and SpaceX’s Falcon 1, have altered the entire industry in terms of its functioning. Now, the industry is looking forward to universal connectivity coupled with artificial intelligence to enable personalized transportation and delivery services. Also, AI’s high-capacity processing and pervasive cloud computing is expected to make unmanned traffic management (UTM) possible.

In this growth stride, fuel costs has been one of the biggest setbacks. Thus, the A&D industry is exploring the possibilities of alternative fuels to decrease exposure to oil price variations and reduce dependency on crude oil. One such alternative is the All- Electric Aircraft (AEA). Electric and hybrid-electric propulsion is rapidly revolutionizing the A&D industry and many organizations are investing in the technology as it is the future of aviation.

At this juncture, many cutting-edge aerospace and defense consulting companies are entering the domain with advanced and integrated offerings. To help the aerospace and defense sector strengthen its operational capabilities and simultaneously enable growth in the industry, Aerospace and Defense Review has compiled a list of the top aerospace and defense consulting/service companies.
