Space is a complex, challenging and dangerous environment, and to be able to access it, for both commerical and scientific missions, it is critical that the systems, processes and products that are used, are fit for purpose. Often it is difficult to model changes in a physical asset e.g. satellite without access to it, or risk of jeopardising the mission, thus a digital twinning is becoming a key tool for mission design, simulation and manufacturing.
Digital twinning is the process of creating a digital replica of a physical asset, mirroring the original completely. This twin can thus be tested, modified, improved or incorporated without risking the actual entity. Once proven those changes can be incorporated without risk to the mission or process.
