Siemens to provide Supacat with improved processes for the Land 400 defence program.
Siemens has entered into an agreement with Supacat to provide a suite of software for Supacat and Rheinmetall’s LAND 400 program.
Siemens’ Teamcenter and NX software will be onboarded to streamline Supacat’s design and engineering procedures, providing these services on one platform. Siemens notes that this software was onboarded within the US Air Force in order to improve their digital processes and equipment management.
Supacat managing director Asia Pacific Michael Halloran outlined that the new agreement will help collaboration between the providers for the LAND 400 tender.
“Implementation of this system allows us to integrate more closely with the Rheinmetall LAND 400 team and that lowers the barriers to the Australian supply chain entering the program,” Halloran said.
Managing director of Siemens Digital Industries Software Samantha Murray outlined that Australia’s defence industry would benefit from the agreement.
“It’s great to collaborate with local Australian companies like Supacat doing innovative work that helps them connect to global supply chains. We’re also excited about helping upskill their staff on world-leading technology. Supacat has been taking giant strides in the areas of defence design and engineering. I commend them on this investment into future-proofing their digital capabilities to global standards,” Murray noted.
