Government & Defense

The American military has long made it a strategic objective to invest in the development of cutting edge defense technology. These initiatives often overlap with broader government projects, such as the strengthening of national infrastructure. CATI helps meet these goals by supplying the underlying hardware and software crucial for advanced product development.

  • On the Cutting Edge.

    Many of the most successful civilian products and processes in use today have their origins in the military sector. Maintaining a reputation for strong returns on investment requires the best tools for the job. As defense technology grows increasingly complex, CAE software lets companies capture, analyze, and reinvest data findings in order to create an elite product.

  • Enabling Efficiency.

    Efficiency is a top priority in every industry, but for government sectors, it is a mandate. Optimizing processes and allocating resources intelligently keeps costs down. PLM software provides the transparency needed to streamline production and maximize results.

  • Defense Modernization.

    Increased spending and a volatile geopolitical climate have raised expectations for the defense sector. Integrating new materials and cutting-edge technologies is crucial for defense companies to drive growth and stay agile. CATI provides military contractors with the tools to design and simulate updated product features and streamlined processes, keeping the defense sector ahead of the curve.

  • Championing Cybersecurity.

    Cybersecurity is a critical opportunity for growth in the defense industry, and will only gain priority as global networks increase in complexity. Trusted sovereign cloud platforms for high-security industries like defense allow companies to collaborate with confidence, enabling innovation while meeting data governance requirements.
