General Aeronautics Selects Dassault Systems to Develop Unmanned Aerial Vehicle

Dassault Systèmes today announced at Aero India 2019, that Bengaluru based integrated aircraft design and engineering services company, General Aeronautics has deployed the 3DEXPERIENCE platform on cloud to develop next-generation design Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). General Aeronautics leverages Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) and Multi-Disciplinary Optimization (MDO) capabilities of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to deliver more efficient programs through the virtual development and simulation of drones.

General Aeronautics designs, develops and produces state of the art fixed-wing and rotary-wing UAS for a wide range of civilian, humanitarian and military roles: surveillance and reconnaissance, transportation of packages including medical supplies and organs for transplantation and expendable targets for military exercises. General Aeronautics’ GA-1 is an exciting new multirole mini Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). The GA-1’s capability of vertical take-off combined with efficient forward flight and high endurance makes it a truly versatile platform.

Dr. Kota Harinarayana, Founder Chairman, General Aeronautics said, “General Aeronautics has partnered with Dassault Systèmes to develop next-generation design methods for Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV) systems. Dassault Systèmes cloud-based technology has been harnessed by General Aeronautics to design and integrate advanced UAV systems. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform has been key to the development of both fixed-wing hybrid and multicopter UAV systems with advanced capabilities. General Aeronautics is excited to collaborate with Dassault Systèmes to implement a comprehensive design and development process comprising design, engineering, integration, manufacturing as well as digital twin for mirroring physical and digital representatives of UAV systems.”

Dassault Systèmes is enabling startups, new entrants and small original equipment manufacturers to invent sustainable air mobility experiences that will transform the aviation market in today’s Industry Renaissance. Samson Khaou, Managing Director, India, Dassault Systèmes said, “With increasing customer expectations and growing program complexities, aerospace manufacturing industry is becoming challenging like never before. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform on cloud empowers these OEMs to achieve type-certification on time, reduce costs, plan lean manufacturing processes, and improve performance. Furthermore, our portfolio has new industry solution experiences that are tailored for product innovation by entrepreneurs, makers and startups in the aerospace industry.”

Dassault Systèmes is attending Aero India 2019 at Hall AB2.19I.
