Selected as product lifecycle management vendor for Space Systems/Loral.

Siemens is enabling Space Systems/Loral to develop the world's most advanced satellites.

Space Systems/Loral delivers reliable satellites and spacecraft systems for commercial and government customers around the world.

The organisation has chosen Siemens PLM Software's Teamcenter software and has used it to replace its existing applications.

Headquartered in Plano, Texas, Siemens PLM Software works collaboratively with companies to deliver open solutions that help them turn more ideas into successful products.

Its Teamcenter software is a widely used digital lifecycle management system and was chosen for this project after a thorough evaluation by Space Systems/Loral.

"As part of our commitment to product and process improvement, Space Systems/Loral has selected Teamcenter as our new PLM platform," said Mouctar Diallo, vice president of information technology, Space Systems/Loral. "We conducted a thorough PLM vendor selection process which resulted in selecting Siemens as it proved to be the best PLM vendor for Space Systems/Loral to partner with."

Replacing existing systems

Teamcenter plays a critical role for companies such as Space Systems/Loral that are focused on innovation as their mission.

The solution for Space Systems/Loral will be implemented throughout 2012 and will replace its existing product data management systems.

Siemens believe this agreement with Space Systems/Loral indicates the popularity of Teamcenter in the Aerospace and Defense market as well as underscores the role its technology plays in innovation.

"We are proud to partner with the world's leading provider of commercial satellites," said Chuck Grindstaff, president and CEO, Siemens PLM Software. "Our vision for all of our customers is to provide the technology, services and expertise that will help them make smarter decisions that result in better products; so we are delighted that Space Systems/Loral has joined so many other companies in embracing that vision and migrating to Teamcenter as their company-wide foundation for PLM."
