Gilmour strikes Siemens deal ahead of rocket launch
Gilmour Space Technologies has agreed a deal with Siemens to switch to using the tech giant’s design and project management software.
It significantly comes ahead of the business targeting the first test launch of its Eris rocket later this year.
On Thursday, Gilmour said it would transition to using Siemens’ CAD software NX and its project lifecycle management program (PLM) Teamcenter.
PLM software is a suite of applications that helps companies manage the entire lifecycle of a product, from conception to retirement. They aim to improve product development processes, reduce costs, and increase innovation.
Adam Gilmour, chief executive officer of Gilmour Space, said, “We’re unique in Australia in providing a full spectrum of launch services to our global customers – from the launch vehicle and orbital launch site to the satellite platforms and mission management.
“Siemens’ software will play a key role in our ongoing research, product, and solution development as we grow into a globally competitive launch provider.”
