Integrated Digital Enterprise


HII uses Integrated Digital Shipbuilding (iDS) — laser scanning, augmented reality, modeling and simulation, and additive manufacturing – to transition from two-dimensional paper-based instructions to digital formats to increase efficiency, safety and affordability. Currently, iDS is being implemented by HII for construction of the aircraft carrier Enterprise (CVN 80), which will be the first ship built completely paperless, and in submarine construction on the Columbia-class.
