Defense

As a pioneer in simulation technologies for defense industry, MSC Software offers a complete suite of multidisciplinary capabilities required to build best-of-class products

Geopolitical changes are affecting the defense requirements of governments. New technologies and budgetary constraints are playing a major role in the nature and function of defense systems. In order to test and deploy new designs, it is broadly recognized that modeling and simulation plays a key role in controlling the costs. By controlling the cost of physical testing, manufacturers would be in a strong position to bring out newer and smarter solutions, without sacrificing quality.

As a pioneer in providing simulation solutions to the defense industry, MSC Software provides complete spectrum of technologies required to test new materials, new designs and new operational scenarios. With MSC’s solutions, you gain from the solutions honed and optimized during nearly 5 decades of service to the industry.

We think this is the fastest an engineered vehicle has ever been designed. This type of fast turnaround has enabled us to develop a thriving business supporting defense contractors and other wheeled vehicle manufacturers."
