The United Launch Alliance rocket that carried NASA‘s Mars Atmosphere and Volatile EvolutioN to space Monday contained design analysis software made by a Siemens business unit.
This launch is one of several that ULA plans to use Siemens PLM Software’s Teamcenter software for, the companies said Monday.
“ULA is very proud of its 100 percent success rate with launches, and our partnership with Siemens is an important part of that success,” said Michael Gass, ULA president and CEO.
“We utilize Siemens PLM software to help deliver mission success for the Atlas V rocket more effectively and efficiently from design to manufacture,” Gass added.
Atlas V rockets have launched 41 times and ULA has carried out 76 total launches since its inception in December 2006.
