Under the technical leadership of its new Chief Technology Officer, Martin Nuesseler, the Maeve team has redesigned and optimized its earlier aircraft using the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio of industry software. Creating a digital twin of its all-electric powertrain and executing full thermal and safety simulations on its in-house designed aircraft dedicated battery system, has enabled Maeve to significantly reduce the overall weight of the aircraft, resulting in the reduction of aircraft structures delivering an increase in propulsion and battery capacity. And compared to existing turboprop aircraft, Maeve 01 reduces operating costs by 30%.
“Maeve, like many aerospace industry innovators, is adopting Siemens Xcelerator as the platform of choice for the development of next-generation vehicles,” said Todd Tuthill, Vice President, Aerospace and Defense, Siemens Digital Industries Software. “To meet market demands, sustainability requirements and remain competitive, aerospace companies need new ways to deliver products faster and Siemens’ goal is to help our customers push the boundaries of innovation while making digital transformation easy, fast, and at scale.”
Siemens Digital Industries Software helps organizations of all sizes digitally transform using software, hardware and services from the Siemens Xcelerator business platform. Siemens’ software and the comprehensive digital twin enable companies to optimize their design, engineering and manufacturing processes to turn today’s ideas into the sustainable products of the future. From chips to entire systems, from product to process, across all industries. Siemens Digital Industries Software – Accelerating transformation.
