Collier Aerospace Corp has developed new analysis and design software for composite struc-tures used in aircraft, space and automotive vehicles.

According to the company, the software can help reduce weight and improve manufacturability, accelerating part development and helping engineers achieve airframe certification by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).

“[The software] runs faster and handles larger models with a new and powerful graphics engine and underlying relational database to hold terabytes of data,” said Craig Collier, CEO and president. “Along with streamline workflows and a redesigned modern interface, engineers can do more in less time. […] Our mantra is ‘center your design,’ which means helping customers find the sweet spot at the intersection of weight reduction, development speed, on-time certification and producibility.”

The HyperX software, which is licensed on a subscription basis, will replace HyperSizer, the company’s previous product.
