S Somanath, director, Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre inaugurated the Centre for Advanced Simulation for Space Application developed by Ansys in association with Digilog Tech.

Ansys in association with Digilog Technologies inaugurated the Centre for Advanced Simulation for Space Application (CASSA). CASSA is set to fast-track simulation knowledge and skills through training, seminars, webinars, demonstration and discussion of advanced simulation technologies from Ansys.

CASSA will support trainings on space related application of Ansys simulation programs and will offer a central location to Ansys software users in and around Thiruvananthapuram. As a part of the program, free training will be provided that will keep users informed on the latest applications of this simulation technology.

S Somanath, director, Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre who inaugurated the centre, said, “Simulation is critical to meeting the high reliability, tight timeline and cost targets for space projects. Ansys' CASSA will further help in accelerating our space program by fast-tracking simulation skills development and also supporting and understanding new simulation capabilities. I am delighted to be at the inauguration of CASSA, which will contribute to the space engineering ecosystem in and around Thiruvananthapuram by enhancing simulation knowledge and skill development of scientists, engineers and academic institutes.”

Rafiq Somani, area vice president - India and South Asia Pacific, Ansys added that “We, at Ansys, are committed to ensure that the Indian Space establishments are future ready and CASSA is a step towards this direction. The Ansys simulation platform enables the comprehensive simulation of critical space systems in one seamless simulation toolset. The operation of CASSA will be in accord with space technology establishments in the vicinity of Thiruvananthapuram and will enable the scientists to best adopt ANSYS simulation technology.”

CASSA is equipped with well-maintained infrastructure be it premises, computing equipment and the company’s latest tools are available for training and there will be basic, advanced and customised training sessions for Ansys users.
