Siemens Acquires ZONA Technology, Inc; Increases Xcelerator Capabilities for Climate-neutral Aviation
With the global drive toward climate-neutral aviation gaining pace and the rebirth of interest in supersonic travel, innovations in aircraft configurations require careful and diligent use of aerodynamic and structural design optimization. Siemens Digital Industries Software today announces that it entered into an agreement to acquire ZONA Technology, Inc., a renowned specialist in the field of aeroelastic simulation solutions. The addition of the ZONA Technology, Inc. technology to Siemens’ Xcelerator portfolio will assist customers in making their digital threads as comprehensive and as efficient as possible to help speed innovation, ensure on-time and on-budget delivery of more sustainable aerospace invention.
The ZONA Technology, Inc. technology will become part of Siemens’ Simcenter™ software portfolio, allowing the creation of a unique end-to-end airframe structure design and certification analysis digital thread, beginning with early concept studies, through high-fidelity aero-structural optimization and to the structural certification and documentation. The combination of ZONA Technology, Inc. high fidelity aeroelastic methods and industry leading Simcenter simulation can reduce dependency on third-party aeroelasticity tools and replace disjointed workflows for airframe analysis, simulation and verification.
ZONA Technology的技术将被集成至西门子Simcenter软件，帮助创建端到端机身结构设计与认证分析的数字主线，覆盖从早期概念研究、到高保真航空结构优化、再到结构认证与文档编制的全过程。ZONA Technology的高保真气动弹性分析方法与西门子 Simcenter 的仿真技术相结合，可帮助客户减少对第三方气动弹性分析工具的依赖，取代互为脱节的机身分析、仿真和验证工作流。
"The aerospace industry is facing unprecedented technological challenges as it pursues the complexity of both climate-neutral aviation and the rebirth of supersonic travel," said Jean-Claude Ercolanelli, senior vice president, Simulation and Test Solutions, Siemens Digital Industries Software. "The addition of ZONA Technology, Inc. capabilities to the Xcelerator portfolio will help to support our customers going further with their digital transformation and will strengthen Siemens effort to build a comprehensive and cutting-edge end-to-end airframe structure design and certification workflow to the Aerospace industry."
