Rolls-Royce Enters Ship Design Market with QinetiQ Software; Peter MacLeod Comments

Rolls-Royce has selected QinetiQ GRC’s Paramarine software as its marine software tool to develop naval ship designs, according to a MarineLink.com article.

“Naval ship design is a new entity at Rolls-Royce and it is vital at the outset to have world class software tools, processes and people in order to deliver winning designs,” said Peter MacLeod, capability manager for naval ship design at Rolls-Royce.

According to the article, the new ship design team will create designs for Navy, Coast Guard and other maritime agency customers.

“Rolls-Royce was looking for a software tool that would be able to speed up the whole process of early stage ship design whilst mitigating risk as its intention is to develop new projects from scratch in short timeframes,” said Vittorio Vagliani, QinetiQ GRC managing director.

The team will focus on offshore patrol vessels and naval auxiliary opportunities, rather than large combatant ships.

Rolls-Royce will work to offer integrated “whole ship” solutions to government customers looking for cost-effective and innovative ships suited to the demanding roles of navies worldwide.

    Be careful with Rolls-Royce as they still support corruption by paying millions of Dollars to “odd” people who can force airlines to buy Rolls-Royce engines!
    I tell the truth.
