In the race to successfully launch satellites into orbit, New Space companies must speed up innovation in satellite technology. They can, with a business platform that enables them to accelerate design and manufacturing through first-time-right outcomes.
Humans’ fascination with space led to the launch of the first satellite in the mid-1950s.
Today, this fascination has only deepened, and space is no longer the sole purview of government agencies. Private companies are disrupting the space exploration and satellite industry as they race to produce increasingly sophisticated satellites and reusable launchers.
It’s a new frontier in satellite technology. Driven by the need to accelerate innovation, this new frontier helps companies identify opportunities to extend the limit of rocketry and satellite design and manufacturing.
Our ebook provides insights that help New Space players identify opportunities to thrive in the entrepreneurial space age.
How exactly can New Space companies begin to drive the new frontier of satellite technology? The answer lies in the right business platform that helps them shorten rocketry and satellite development time to achieve first-time-right quality for successful launches.
The right business platform enables all of this by integrating different departments and information while providing digital capabilities to accelerate design and manufacturing.
The challenge for New Space companies is to develop the versatility of their platforms while manufacturing to order at scale. In the longer term, the challenge will be to manage mega-constellations and ensure their sustainability.
When it comes to rocketry and satellite design, the right business platform offers digital mission engineering with the capability to reuse data and models from past projects instead of starting from scratch. Stakeholders can collaborate with a real-time overview of designs in development to achieve innovative, sustainability-focused results faster.
Then, advanced virtual simulation capabilities allow companies to accelerate the testing and validation process. When they are equipped with multi-scale and multi-physics simulation capabilities that can rapidly reproduce complex space systems, they can explore more options and address quality issues and launch risks earlier.
To achieve sustainable production of mega-satellite constellations, you have to enter the realm of the virtual twin of your operations.
Because rocketry and satellite manufacturing involves customized production, agility becomes a crucial competitive edge. The business platform not only enables companies to optimize production plans but also allows them to respond quickly to changes. They can rely on a virtual twin of their physical operations to rapidly evaluate the impact of different decisions before implementing any plans or plan adjustments. This ensures that they can stay on track for best results on the shop floor and ultimately increase manufacturing speed without sacrificing quality.
The cloud-enabled 3DEXPERIENCE® platform is the integrated solution that New Space players need to succeed in the new frontier of satellite technology. It hastens their ability to design and manufacture sustainable first-time-right rocketry and satellite systems with the required quality at lower costs, and ultimately speed up the delivery of satellites into orbit.
By integrating technology into product development, companies can accelerate the product lifecycle from concept to take-off and gain a critical first-to-market advantage. This is possible through a suite of powerful digital capabilities that include real-time collaboration, virtual simulation, optimized planning and the virtual twin experience. The virtual twin experience is an accurate and executable virtual model of the physical operations that allows companies to evaluate multiple what-if scenarios with ease and speed.
By bridging the real and virtual worlds, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform enables companies to extend the boundaries of rocketry and satellite innovation and make space more accessible.
