Solar Impulse is a Swiss long-range solar-powered aircraft project that aims to prove that progress is possible using clean forms of energy. The project hopes to achieve the first circumnavigation of the Earth by a piloted fixed-wing aircraft using only solar power in 2015.
"Using PTC Mathcad, all of the formulas and mathematical terms are making calculations much easier to check compared to Microsoft Excel. With recurring tasks like pin and lug analyses, we had to do the same work repeatedly when we did calculations by hand. Using PTC Mathcad, we have defined templates. Now analyses are three to five times faster."
