Space Systems/Loral Selects Teamcenter for Development of World's Most Advanced Satellites


Siemens PLM Software, a business unit of the Siemens Industry Automation Division and a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, today announced that Space Systems/Loral has selected its Teamcenter® software, the world’s most widely used digital lifecycle management system, to replace existing applications, and help enable the development of the world’s most advanced satellites.


Following a thorough, PLM industry-wide evaluation, Space Systems/Loral made the strategic decision to begin to implement Siemens PLM Software’s technology this month – an implementation that will take place throughout 2012 and will ultimately replace its existing product data management systems.

“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.”

“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.”

“This agreement with Space Systems/Loral highlights the market leadership of Teamcenter in the Aerospace and Defense market, but also underscores the role our technology plays in innovation,” said Eric Sterling, senior vice president, general manager, Teamcenter, Siemens PLM Software. “Clearly the world’s most widely used digital lifecycle management system, Teamcenter, continues to play a critical role for companies focused on innovation as their mission.”
