United States Brand: CATIA, ENOVIA, SIMULIA
Industry: Marine and Offshore

ORACLE TEAM USA is the American team defending the America’s Cup in San Francisco in 2013. Founded by Larry Ellison, the team became the America’s Cup Defender when it won the 33rd America’s Cup in February 2010.

The Challenge

ORACLE TEAM USA needed to design, build and test two boats based on entirely new, untested design specifications in less than three years to defend the 34th America’s Cup. 

Dassault Systèmes Response

The team chose Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE Platform, including CATIA for virtual product design, ENOVIA for collaborative innovation, and SIMULIA for realistic simulation to develop boats for the most technologically advanced America’s Cup ever.


The 3DEXPERIENCE Platform enabled ORACLE TEAM USA to rapidly develop, test and perfect its cutting-edge boat designs in a collaborative virtual environment that fostered sharing and leveraged the skills of its global teams. In a miraculous comeback, ORACLE TEAM USA won the 34th America's Cup by quickly devising a design solution to improve the boat's speed.
