Reinvent The Sky supports startups, small and medium enterprises and OEMs in developing disruptive solutions: from small, light aircraft to electric vertical take-off and landing, and as well as space launchers and satellite propulsions.

Companies can accelerate the product lifecycle from concept to certification and launch and gain significant advantage by being the first on the market with their prototype.
By optimizing program execution and connecting the dots thanks to the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform on the cloud, they can reduce complexity and design for manufacturing during product development.

The cloud-based Reinvent The Sky solution on the platform allows better collaboration across functional teams (engineering, manufacturing, test, supplier management), lowers IT costs and scales with project maturity and company cash flow.
