Embraer, ANSYS accelerate time to market for next-generation aircraft

With ANSYS (NASDAQ: ANSS) software onboard, Embraer´s latest commercial jet made history as the only aircraft to receive on-time certification simultaneously by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and Brazilian Civil Aviation Agency (Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil — ANAC). Embraer met complex targets for flight performance in record time — confidently bringing cutting-edge aircraft to market faster than ever, the company said.

Embraer built the flight control system for the E190-E2 aircraft using ANSYS to develop and simulate the embedded software and generate the embedded code used to control the primary flight control system. ANSYS solutions provide efficient and reliable code generation, resulting in significant cost and time savings.

The most efficient single-aisle aircraft on the market, the E190-E2 is 17.3 percent more fuel efficient than the current-generation E190. It is the most environmentally friendly aircraft in its class with the lowest levels of external noise and emissions. The aircraft also has the longest maintenance intervals among single-aisle aircraft.
