Siemens is proud of its role in NASA’s development of Curiosity. NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab oratory implemented NX™ from Siemens PLM Software, a fully integrated CAD/CAM/CAE system, as their product engineering and manufacturing platform. NX CAE offers a modern CAE environment to help realize shorter design-analysis iterations, and efficient workflows for multi-discipline simulation.

FUTEK was commissioned by NASA JPL to design and develop two cryogenic sensors aboard Curiosity. With a donut load cell operating within the rover’s drilling arm, it stands responsible for monitoring the force exerted upon the Martian ground. Additionally, a multiaxial sensor supervises the robotic arm as it maneuvers.
