Dassault Systèmes announced that National Aerospace Laboratories (NAL), a constituent of Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) has adopted the “Passenger Experience” industry solution experience based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to design civil aircraft in India, specifically the Saras Mk-2 program. NAL is also using DraftSight, a feature-rich 2D and 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD) solution for 2D design standardization in the manufacturing of civil aircraft.
The “Passenger Experience” industry solution experience helps in reducing engineering costs in cabin completion by up to 40 per cent through engineering, manufacturing and certification processes automation. It also helps in increasing brand perception and reducing content creation by 40 per cent for all passenger touch points for sales and marketing. “Passenger Experience” combines emotion and automation across engineering, manufacturing and certification processes to allow completion centres to deliver personalized cabin interiors profitably. The DraftSight solution unifies essential 2D drafting, advanced 2D CAD or all-in-one 2D and 3D design with full 3D capabilities for modelling, prototyping, manufacturing and laser cutting.
With the adoption of the “Passenger Experience” industry solution experience, and by replacing existing 2D CAD tools with DraftSight, NAL has expanded its usage of technology solutions from Dassault Systèmes. It has been using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform in its overall mission and mandate to develop aerospace technologies with strong science content, to design and build small and medium-sized civil aircraft, and to support the nation’s regional connectivity plan such as UDAN (Ude Desh Ka Aam Nagrik).
“The 3DEXPERIENCE platform-based ‘Passenger Experience’ solution has been deployed in designing the Cabin and Cockpit of the Saras Mk-2 program. Virtual twin-based insights offered by this solution helped us to configure the cabin for various use cases and scenarios,” said Jitendra J Jadhav, Director, NAL.
