who we are.

The aviation industry is on the cusp of the fourth industrial revolution. What is needed to secure its future is an increase in efficiency, speed and productivity – and thus a significantly higher degree of automation. However, the special conditions of this industry make it necessary to adopt a new approach.

By combining innovative measurement, automation and imaging technology with in-depth aviation experience and a close proximity to research,

3D.aero offers the system intelligence needed to bring about the necessary changes.

With our solutions for challenging automation tasks, we enable manufacturers and maintenance providers in the aviation industry to take the next step in the digital transformation.
