EADS Defence & Security and Premium AEROTEC GmbH Extend Use of HyperWorks

- Altair's CAE product family helps streamline processes at EADS Defence & Security and aerospace companies

TROY, Michigan, June 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Altair Engineering, Inc., a leading global provider of simulation technology and engineering services that empower client innovation and decision-making, announced today that EADS Defence & Security and Premium AEROTEC GmbH, a wholly owned EADS subsidiary, have extended their use of HyperWorks. EADS Defence & Security first started using HyperWorks' optimization solution, OptiStruct in 2005. The following year, HyperMesh was selected as the preferred finite element (FE) pre-processing solution for analysis departments and HyperView, the suite's FE post-processing technology, followed shortly after. HyperMesh and HyperView are heavily used for Eurofighter support and enhancement tasks as well as for the structural development of future aviation products. Premium AEROTEC GmbH is using HyperWorks to aid in the development of all the Airbus programs they support.

"We see a growing need for simulation and optimization within the aerospace industry and decided therefore to extend our use of HyperWorks," said Franz Josef Weiss, CAE Requirement Manager at EADS Defence & Security, Germany. "HyperMesh allows our engineers to get better FE models in a shorter time. Thus, we can quickly prepare accurate models of complex composite components for analysis. OptiStruct is an optimization tool that supports us in particular with the structural concept development, in order to meet aggressive weight targets of modern aircraft structures."

"We are very pleased with the broad expansion of HyperWorks at EADS Defence & Security," said Dr. Michael Hoffmann, Altair Vice President EMEA. "All of our HyperWorks products are continuously enriched with valuable input from customers like EADS Defence & Security. This helps us stay in close contact with the industry in order to provide the simulation technology required to develop today's modern aircraft systems. From streamlining CAE processes to providing what has become the de facto standard for structural optimization in the aerospace industry (OptiStruct), we look forward to increasing our cooperation with EADS Defence & Security and I am confident that both parties will continue to mutually benefit."

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
