Aerion Supersonic, a developer of civil supersonic aircraft, has selected the Xcelerator portfolio from Siemens Digital Industries Software. Aerion’s AS2 is a privately built supersonic commercial aircraft. Designed to be inherently environmentally responsible, the AS2 supersonic aircraft has ability to accept 100% synthetic fuel. It is also designed without an afterburner.

Using Siemens’ Xcelerator portfolio, Aerion can use advanced design and simulation software to speed aircraft development, as well as achieve performance in flight and operations. 

“We see Siemens as a critical partner with a fully-aligned solution to our business needs,” says Tom Vice, CEO at Aerion. “Siemens’ solution portfolio and the strong digital thread connecting each part of our process can help Aerion quickly analyze and optimize innovative designs. We can even model design change impacts on the future carbon footprint of our aircraft, which is critical to our mission of sustainable design.”                                                            

Siemens provides the aerospace and defense industry with a flexible ecosystem that combines both an open software platform and rapid application development to easily build, integrate and extend data and existing systems. Through the Xcelerator portfolio, combined with access to technology and solutions partners across the globe, Siemens has created a series of adaptable digital threads that enable aerospace and defense companies to optimize their operations and win new business, while rapidly adapting to changes in the industry, according to the company.

“Siemens, and our partner Applied CAx, are proud to have been selected to support Aerion’s drive to revolutionize the commercial aerospace industry and defense market,” says Barry Chapman, vice president of Aerospace & Defense and Federal Government, Siemens Digital Industries Software. “Leveraging the proven Xcelerator portfolio can help Aerion operate as an agile, digital organization and dramatically reduce the time and cost of new aircraft systems development. Siemens is partnering with a range of companies like Aerion, across the aerospace industry, to help create an open and adaptable digital thread across the entire lifecycle, which will be key in meeting defense requirements.”
