Vection Technologies will implement its groundbreaking 3DFrame platform to assist the design of the European Space Agency’s hypersonic aircraft prototype.

Exposure to one of the world’s most highly technical industries is a boon for Vection, and a world-stage platform to show off the capabilities of the 3DFrame platform.

Vection Technologies (ASX:VR1) will collaborate with SolidWorld, a leading 3D high-tech software developer and manager, as well as high-precision components and assemblies for aerospace and defense manufacturer, Marotta, to develop the prototype, using Vection’s 3DFrame platform integrated with Dassault Systèmes’ SolidWorks design suite and the Cisco Webex collaboration platform.

The ability to implement VR1’s extended reality (XR) platform INTEGRATEDXR will enable the virtual integration of subsystems, optimisation of the ergonomics of aircraft specialists and greatly reduce design costs while also minimising the risk of errors.

Test flight takeoff due in 2026

The prototype of the hypersonic aircraft is in the design completion stage, with construction starting next year. The test flight is expected to take place in 2026.

“The INTEGRATEDXR solution marks a significant milestone in the aerospace industry by providing companies with an innovative and collaborative platform to accelerate the design and development of complex aerospace projects,” VR1 CEO Gianmarco Biagi said.

Marotta CEO Luca Grosso said the installation of the software [from] SolidWorld and Vection Technologies have made it possible to create a virtual testing environment in which to conduct structural simulations and ensure the safety of our test teams.

“In addition, the switch to these new technologies ensures immediate communication between departments, providing production time savings of up to over 70%, thus increasing their life and ensuring even more productivity,” Grosso noted.
