Aerospace Complex Engineering: Russian Space Center Invests in PTC Software




Russia’s Rocket and Space Center (RCC)  announced that it plans to spend 179 million rubles to purchase software from American company Parametric Technology Corporation (PTC), according to “Chronograph”. The investment includes PTC Windchill and PTC Creo and will help with continuing development of the Progress spacecraft, which services the international space station.

“RCC “Progress” has already worked for more than 10 years with PTC solutions.Unfortunately, domestic PLM solutions today are not yet at an appropriate level. The most advanced Russian developer of software products in the field of design and technological preparation – ASCON group – is behind the world leaders by more than 10 years, and we cannot afford to revert to its development far back,” said General Director Alexander Kirilin RCC.
