The Extended Digital Twin

As the digital transformation process is advancing, key stakeholders and decision-makers are looking for solutions to address the rising complexities. The digital twin strategy proves to be a relevant framework that can help large organizations capture the power of digital twins while facilitating the right information to be shared and adapted in a digital twin software and services ecosystem that empowers enterprises on an IoT journey to be digitalized.

A digital twin is a simulation of the physical world in the digital one, and all of the data is collected from sensors, machines, etc. It’s a virtual model of all assets with all systems, business functions, and people linked and interacting with it. To put it simply – A Digital Twin is a virtual representation in a virtual space of a physical structure in real space, and the information flow between the two that keeps them synchronized. The key difference between classic supply chain modeling and this is that instead of relying on existing data to update our models or build new ones when needed, we rely on real-time information feeds, which both facilitate continuous synchronization of the digital to the real environment as well as building models that can be updated on-the-go and by using full history data over time.

As companies continue to scale, they must rely on new digital solutions to accelerate their pace. Increased responsibilities come with increased risks. Asset and process complexity continues to increase, so the call for speed and agility will increase as well. Therefore, digital twins could offer a solution to address these real-world problems and also be a way to help businesses become more efficient and innovative especially as they continue to branch out into new technology platforms such as IoT, cloud, artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality (AR) or extended reality (XR).

Axipiter Digital Twin Platform delivers an integrated and intelligent orchestration of all digital Twin components, including data models, computational models, interaction models, simulators, and visualizations.

Axipiter presents an integrated digital Twin Space orchestration platform enriched with intelligent solutions. The Axipiter  Digital Twin is built on a multi-dimensional foundation enabling efficient design, analysis, management, operations, and a complete digital transformation of projects while adapting to evolving system changes.

 The Digital Twin concept is used to achieve a higher level of automation, improve operations and maintenance (O&M), and accelerate the realization of business process changes. Due to its uniqueness, the Digital Twin concept is now increasingly being used across a wide spectrum of industries.

The rapid expansion of digital applications and systems brings new possibilities to the market and creativity of products, but also imposes a new challenge to shape customer experiences and business models.
Axipiter digital Twin space is the first digital twin integration platform that allows companies to seamlessly, comprehensively, and dynamically orchestrate the entire digital space, from data tracking and management to customer experience, to the process of building digital and real-world systems to form a full customer experience.

The Axipiter Extended Digital Twin is called Avatar

The Avatar

Designed to help you along your space industry journey, Axipitr Space Orchestrator allows you to use our digital universe to build your own customized, branded environment to suit your own business needs. This single all-encompassing platform enables you to manage your unmanned and remote space-based assets from a single location. It offers you the opportunity to learn, develop and collaborate with the global space community!

The Axipiter Space Orchestrator is a fully immersive digital environment that allows you to create and interact with your avatar and industry space objects at every level(e.g., devices, machines, satellites, software systems, companies, people, plants, cities) that interact autonomously with other ecosystem avatars, with their parts (i.e., sensors/actuators, HW/SW systems, and people) and the external world (e.g., other Ecosystem Avatars or 3rd party systems).

They could be partially (just some bricks) or totally (all the components of an Avatar) shared between different organizations even belonging to different Space Business Metaverses and sent from one Space Business Enterprise to another dynamically such as when they are composed using some other bricks belonging to a specific Space Business Mega-structure that connects different organizations and physical locations, thus creating new “Composed Avatars” that are fully Distributed in their own, way due to the way they were built through this process. Allowing a new generation of transparent interoperability into the picture to connect one Space Business Enterprise network with another. This can help ease business processes across all companies, by making them more accessible, visible, and understandable – right down at the button level.  We are building a space industry ecosystem orchestrator as a low-code platform to help organizations to connect their processes and resources to create successful projects.

The Avatar is a combination of Smart Digital Bricks

The Smart Digital Bricks

The Space Orchestrator Platform is a new approach to managing space utilization, applications, and analytics. It delivers the next generation of digital twin capability, allowing customers to manage their physical assets in new and exciting ways. Furthermore, SPO delivers the creation of packaged business capabilities, allowing customers to rapidly compose and extend their current capabilities, as well as create new capabilities.

SPO enables the next generation of business model innovation in space applications, enabling packaged solutions to be rapidly created and extending these solutions over time. This is the new frontier of Space Business.

The virtual world consists of a variety of intelligent, small digital bricks, each describing a specific function or piece of information, including machines, processes, and systems. The Space Business Metaverse ecosystem consists of intelligent, small Digital Bricks capable of emulating and replicating the behavior of their larger counterparts. This complex system allows all entities to be digitally reconstructed and represented unto others who interact with them.
Each brick is an asset that can be connected with other bricks (in a peer-to-peer method) to form virtual buildings and structures. Bricks can be dynamically placed (shared) and used (assembled) in each point of the space Metaverse ecosystem.

In the Metaverse Space Ecosystem, avatars generated from dynamic brick compositions can represent holistic digital representations of physical entities and link them to other elements.

Each brick represents a separate business and ‘role centric’ capability that generate Distributed and dynamically connected applications.
No disruption to existing systems or infrastructure.
Applications and operating systems become natively connected able to share data, functions, algorithms, and role-specific attributes.
Advanced data analytics – complex neural network and machine learning – deliver operational intelligence creating transformational business outcomes.
Low code architecture allows composing bricks to create Avatars without onerous coding intervention.
Seamless global business-wide Connectivity.

Think of the Space Orchestrator Platform as a Lego® Classic Brick Set. By composing capabilities like bricks of a Lego® box, customers can quickly and efficiently create industrial-grade Composable solutions. By using Horizontal brick sharing capabilities called Sharelets, bricks provided by different space ecosystem partners can be used to enhance customer solutions.

 The Metaverse Space Ecosystem can also wrap dated legacy systems with a simple software wrap job (meaning that those legacy systems can provide a new set of bricks to the Metaverse Space Ecosystem).

The Smart Brick concept provides an opportunity for developers to not worry about the complexities of setting up an environment from scratch. It allows them to create composite objects that possess pre-programmed functionality to perform specific tasks. The Smart Brick can serve as a toolkit of sorts by hiding complexity related to upstream and downstream infrastructures and offering a comprehensive methodology for data usage across various components for the entire space ecosystem.

Smart bricks can represent data or features as demonstrated here. Data could be geo-based and conforms for instance to the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) Web Feature Service standard within the context of a Smart Brick, enabling developers to access core OGC functionality including spatial search, routing, and validation. This can be seen as the spatial complement to Smart Bricks dedicated to functionality, enabling seamless geospatial application composition and powerful end-user mapping capabilities by building on what had already been created in other applications used in the past.

With the rapid pace of technological change, a single encoding represents the data space, (ii) the choice for users is limited, (iii) there may be issues if the chosen encoding is not well supported by client applications.

Digital Bricks can offer divergent views of datasets, and also bolster the overall flexibility of hosting data sets seen by different kinds of stakeholders who need to utilize them in a variety of ways.
