Siemens Digital Industries presents the Aerospace & Defense Startup Program, which provides full access to an integrated PLM solution of Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) and Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software. The available software bundles were assembled with A&D startup businesses in mind and offered to ensure startups can leverage these essential tools at affordable price points.

As an A&D startup, partnering with Siemens provides an array of benefits. The startup bundles will enable you to create a virtual representation (Digital Twin) of your product to optimize the design and simulation process. Perfecting your product design in a virtual setting ensures that you’re mitigating problems before spending a dime on physical prototypes, decreasing your time in production while ensuring strict data management for certification requirements.

The startup bundles offer:
  • A full suite of market-leading design software (NX) coupled with fully-integrated electrical harness design tools (Mentor Capital)
  • Simulation and analysis tools (Simcenter)
  • Multi-physics simulation solutions (STAR-CCM+).
  • Online support (community and training resources) and Siemens Global Technical Access Center (GTAC) phone support.

These tool sets help remove barriers to innovation and accelerate your startup’s product development process with a fully integrated seamless Digital Thread. This ultimately allows you to deliver better products faster.

With the A&D Startup Program, Siemens is looking to create valued partnerships. As businesses grow, Siemens software and support are highly scalable, ensuring they never “run out of runway” in their product lifecycle. Leverage the power of the Siemens brand and ecosystem through valuable marketing opportunities!
