Dassault Systèmes Partnership Selected by French Government to Advance France’s Low-Carbon Aviation Industry

PREFAB, a partnership between Dassault Systèmes, the aviation startup Blue Spirit Aero and the aerospace supplier Soben, was one of nine projects selected by the French government for its “produce low-carbon aircraft in France” objective – part of the “France 2030” initiative to finance sustainable innovations made in France that drive French competitiveness in the global market.

The PREFAB partnership aims to accelerate the production of a prototype of Blue Spirit Aero’s hydrogen-powered aircraft, Dragonfly, and its virtual twin, to drive the industry’s efforts to decarbonize aviation.  Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform will support PREFAB partners by enabling new certification processes, faster compliance and conformity, and best in class industrial processes that reduce time to market.

Blue Spirit Aero has been using Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform to develop the aircraft’s concept – one of the many companies leveraging virtual twin experiences to create sustainable innovations.
