The solution is intended to help engineers eliminate the manual process of coupling design tools for rapidly innovating aerospace and defense applications as well as for future 5G communications, autonomous vehicles and electrification. Additionally, the design is expected to streamline interoperable and cohesive workflow by combining best-in-class tools – empowering engineers to accelerate the product lifecycle, harness critical insights to improve decision-making, reducing human error and creating advanced, higher fidelity designs.
“Keysight and Ansys are each playing central roles in helping our customers shift their real-world challenges into digital twin simulations. By working together, we can accelerate this transformation, which is enabling our customers to innovate and get to market faster than ever before. In particular, Keysight’s PathWave System Design software is a powerful bridge between the worlds of virtual simulation and physical test,” said Tom Lillig, general manager of PathWave Software Solutions at Keysight.
According to Ansys, this collaboration is a continuation of a longstanding relationship Keysight has with AGI – a software company that specializes in aerospace and national security communities, Ansys however acquired the company last year.
“Ansys is building on the relationship with Keysight that AGI began, which successfully incorporated DME into design processes, supporting customers in satellite communications, radar and electronic warfare sectors,” said Shane Emswiler, senior vice president of Ansys.
“Together, Keysight and Ansys will continue to increase the integration of our tools and explore ways for providing additional modeling capabilities to engineers developing innovations in 5G, aerospace/defense and automotive industries.”
As announced, the automated workflow directly connects AGI’s multi-domain mission analysis software, Systems Tool Kit with Keysight’s high-fidelity RF systems modeling tool, PathWave System Design (SystemVue). Ansys expects that the solution will enable engineering teams seamlessly join mission-level modeling with component-level system design throughout the product lifecycle – to quickly arrive at critical system designs and immediately confirm performance within a mission context.
