BL Advanced Ground Support Systems
BL Advanced Ground Support Systems specializes in developing vehicles used by air and ground forces. In the past, when the company relied on outside consultants for simulation support, it found that considerable time was wasted in communications and waiting for simulation results. Building the internal capability to do multibody dynamics and multidiscipline simulations with MSC Software’s Adams and SimXpert has been key to developing the capacity to design vehicles to its own specifications that can later be configured to meet a range of specific customer requirements.
Challenge:Develop a robotic vehicle platform that will handle a wide range of military missions without requiring a human driver.
Solution:Support provided by MSC Software was crucial to BL’s success. With the help of SimXpert, the engeneers at BL were able to sped less time translating and fixing CAD data, and more time devoted to developing new vehicle concepts and bringing them to the market faster.
