Optimizing systems architectures at aircraft level

Aircraft systems are key drivers of innovation in aircraft design and heavily influence overall mass, fuel consumption, operating costs and reliability. Particularly with new technologies such as within the More Electric Aircraft, it is crucial to analyze and optimize systems at a global level to minimize the risk of design inconsistencies or unforeseen behavior in the integration phase.

Our systems architecture design software Pacelab SysArc supports investigations at the aircraft level with a fully-fledged preliminary aircraft design environment. Delivering instant feedback on the global impact, costs and benefits of architectural alternatives, Pacelab SysArc provides a reliable framework for assessing new technologies and making investment or development decisions.
