France-based Dassault Systemes has announced that Boom Supersonic is deploying the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to accelerate the design and development of its Mach-2.2 commercial airliner Overture, to make supersonic travel mainstream and affordable, the company said.

Boom Supersonic is using Dassault Systemes' Reinvent the Sky industry solution experience based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to support product development from concept through manufacturing and certification. By using this industry-leading solution, Boom Supersonic can cut development time of its first prototype in half and improve product quality by reducing program complexity, inefficiency, costs and resources, thus lowering the barriers to market entry.

Boom Supersonic is currently building XB-1, its two-seat demonstrator aircraft, to prove key technologies for supersonic flight. Once operational, the company's flagship airliner, Overture, will become the fastest commercial airplane in history, flying Mach 2.2 from New York to London in 3.25 hours and from Tokyo to San Francisco in 5.5 hours.

Dassault Systemes, the 3DEXPERIENCE Company, expands possibilities for the virtual world to improve the real world. The group brings value to over 250, 000 customers of all sizes, in all industries, in more than 140 countries. For more information, visit
