July 20, 2023
Scalability, efficiency increases along with greater collaboration capability are key drivers for the move, alongside reduction in time-to-market.

Siemens Digital Industries Software announced that Gilmour Space Technologies has adopted the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio of industry software to help accelerate its design and manufacturing processes across its facilities in Queensland, Australia.

Siemens Digital Industries Software’s consultancy and implementation partner PhoenxPLM will support Gilmour Space’s transition to Siemens’ NX software for product engineering and Teamcenter software, the world’s most widely used product lifecycle management software—both from the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio, the partners note, adding that the combined solution and digital thread will help to increase cross-functional collaboration through unified digital frameworks across various areas such as launch vehicles, satellites, launch site operations and research and development.

Adam Gilmour, CEO, Gilmour Space said, “We’re a startup that has grown exponentially the last few years thanks to strong global demand for our products and services and the backing of Australia’s biggest investors. We want software than can scale with us, help us to increase efficiency and collaboration, and shorten our time-to-market. We’re unique in Australia in providing a full spectrum of launch services to our global customers, from the launch vehicle and orbital launch site to the satellite platforms and mission management. Siemens’ software will play a key role in our ongoing research, product and solution development as we grow into a globally competitive launch provider.”

“It’s fantastic to have an innovative and progressive startup such as Gilmour Space use our technology to scale new heights and revolutionize the future of Australian space industry. No matter what industry, digitalization helps level the playing field globally,” added Samantha Murray, vice president and managing director of Siemens Digital Industries Software, Australia and New Zealand. “I commend Gilmour Space on pushing the boundaries and helping make Australia a front runner in the global space technology sector.”Click here to earn more about the work that Siemens is doing to support the space industry.
