Thiruvananthapuram: American firm ANSYS, in association with Indian company Digilog Technologies Private Limited, recently inaugurated the Centre for Advanced Simulation for Space Application (CASSA), to enable fast-track simulation of knowledge and skills.
CASSA will impart training, seminars, webinars, demonstration and discussion of advanced simulation technologies from ANSYS. Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre Director S. Somanath declared the centre open.
CASSA will support trainings on space related application of ANSYS simulation programmes and will offer a central location to ANSYS software users in and around Thiruvananthapuram to attend either in person or web-based trainings conducted by ANSYS.
As a part of the programme, free training will be provided that will keep users informed on the latest applications of ANSYS simulation technology.
“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 programme by fast-tracking simulation skills development and also supporting and understanding new simulation capabilities,” Somanath said on the occasion.
“CASSA will contribute to the space engineering ecosystem in and around Thiruvananthapuram by enhancing simulation knowledge and skill development of scientists, engineers and academic institutes,” he said.
“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,” ANSYS India and South Asia Pacific Area Vice President Rafiq Somani said.
“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.” he said.
CASSA is equipped with well-maintained infrastructure be it premises, computing equipment, and more. The latest ANSYS tools are available at CASSA for training and there will be basic, advanced and customized training sessions for ANSYS users.
