Research & Development

JAXA promotes three research and development programs and a fundamental research program that underpins them.

Aircraft life cycle DX technology


This program seeks to digitally transform the entire life cycle of aircraft, which consists of design, certification, production, operation, maintenance, end of life, and recycling. JAXA’s strengths in numerical simulation and other analytical technology, as well as testing and measurement technologies are fully leveraged in this effort.

・Fast, efficient, multidisciplinary digital integrated design technology
Digital flight technology that substitutes for flight tests necessary for design and certification tests
Digital testing technology that substitutes for material and structural tests
Digital prototyping technology for virtual manufacturing simulation
Air mobility digital design technology
