Boom Supersonic is using Dassault Systèmes’ “Reinvent
the Sky
” industry solution experience based on the 3DEXPERIENCE
platform to support product development from concept through
manufacturing and certification. By using this industry-leading
solution, Boom Supersonic can cut development time of its first
prototype in half and improve product quality by reducing program
complexity, inefficiency, costs and resources, thus lowering the
barriers to market entry.

“Overture takes new advances in aerodynamics, materials, and propulsion
and uses them to revolutionize long-haul commercial airline travel. We
need powerful design tools to deliver our vision of a supersonic future,
and that is exactly what Dassault Systèmes provides,” said Joshua Krall,
co-founder and VP, technology, Boom Supersonic. “As a startup, we aren’t
constrained by legacy software systems and aim to keep IT costs low. We
quickly and easily deployed Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform and
expect to scale up to hundreds of users as our project matures.”

In response to increasing passenger travel and demand for new products
and services, aerospace startups, new market entrants and small original
equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are shaking up traditional aviation
industry dynamics with new and emerging aircraft design concepts that
aim to overcome technical challenges of the past.

Tailored for product innovation by small OEMs and startups, “Reinvent
the Sky” offers scalable access to digital design and simulation
applications in a single, secure, and standards-based environment. Boom
Supersonic’s engineers, program managers and chief test pilot can
collaborate in real time to define requirements, access and reuse common
processes and parts with full traceability.

“Aerospace companies are working to deliver faster, lighter, more
efficient aircraft without sacrificing passenger comfort,” said David
Ziegler, Vice President, Aerospace & Defense Industry, Dassault
Systèmes. “Smaller innovators need tools for their product development
programs that offer them the infrastructure of more established
companies yet allow them to stay nimble and incur minimal IT-related
expenses. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform delivers this support. Boom
Supersonic can create the next generation passenger experience with
digital applications that have long been at the core of the industry’s
major milestones.”

Boom Supersonic is currently building XB-1, its two-seat demonstrator
aircraft, to prove key technologies for supersonic flight. Once
operational, the company’s flagship airliner, Overture, will become the
fastest commercial airplane in history, flying Mach 2.2 from New York to
London in 3.25 hours and from Tokyo to San Francisco in 5.5 hours.

Joshua Krall will be speaking at Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE
FORUM North America
, held May 13-16, 2019 in Las Vegas. The annual
event brings together leaders from across all the company’s 11
industries, including aerospace and defense.

Dassault Systèmes will be attending this year’s International
Paris Air Show
(June 17-23), booth D170 (Hall 2B) and Chalet B161
(by invitation only).
