As unmanned aerial vehicle systems become more complex to design, build and deliver, OEMs and suppliers need to accelerate innovation and drive efficiencies to allow for greater agility on production rate. This requires a new way to conceptualize, design, manufacture, test, certify and sustain new air and space vehicles.
Dassault Systèmes has been enabling startups, new entrants and small original equipment manufacturers to invent sustainable air mobility experiences through their 3DEXPERIENCE platform – a virtual development and simulation platform of drones.


General Aeronautics, an India-based integrated aircraft design and engineering services company, has recently deployed the 3DEXPERIENCE platform on cloud to develop next-generation design Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV).
Samson Khaou, Managing Director, India, Dassault Systèmes said: “The 3DEXPERIENCE platform on cloud empowers OEMs to achieve type-certification on time, reduce costs, plan lean manufacturing processes, and improve performance.” General Aeronautics designs, develops and produces fixed-wing and rotary-wing UAVs for a wide range of civilian, humanitarian and military roles: surveillance and reconnaissance, transportation of packages including medical supplies and organs for transplantation and expendable targets for military exercises.
Dr. Kota Harinarayana, Founder Chairman, General Aeronautics said: “General Aeronautics has partnered with Dassault Systèmes to develop next-generation design methods for UAV systems. Dassault Systèmes cloud-based technology has been harnessed by General Aeronautics to design and integrate advanced UAV systems. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform has been key to the development of both fixed-wing hybrid and multicopter UAV systems with advanced capabilities.”
