General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, Inc. of San Diego, California is focused on the design and production of unmanned aircraft systems. General Atomics Aeronautical required a tight schedule and a complex all-composite design required a fresh approach to modeling and analysis to verify the stability of the Predator B UAV in time for flight tests. To master these requirements General Atomics Aeronautical Systems chose Siemens PLM Software. General Atomics Aeronautical deployed the NX I-deas suite of simulation software tools for finite element mesh generation, MTS I-deas Pro for test and correlation, and Nastran for dynamic analysis. The use of fully-associative geometry, finite element modeling and laminates tool sets allowed efficient modeling of the complex composite structure and greatly reduced the time required to incorporate design changes.
