You’ve mostly likely found yourself in the situation where you need to use your navigation device on your smartphone to find a certain destination. We all know this helpful and life-saving technology works because of GPS, which can find any location on earth based on latitude and longitude. But did you ever think of how spacecrafts know where to go or in what position they are in out there in space? Inertial navigation is the answer to that question. This complex technology is able to work out its location in relation to where it started – set a starting point and you are good to go.
The French-based company Safran Electronics & Defense is one of the world leaders in inertial navigation, as well as optronics and embedded electronics. When developing complex technological systems and applications for the Aerospace & Defense industry, quality and innovation are the key factors for strengthening market position.
To master this challenge, Safran Electronics & Defense had to modernize their processes by embracing digital transformation.
The 3DEXPERIENCE platform provides the right navigation for Safran Electronics & Defense to accelerate their digital transformation, including configuration management and traceability throughout the lifecycle of the company’s products. The platform also enables a high level of customization and a significant improvement in efficiency.
