FTZ participates in the
Ariane 6 project with CNES
Through its technical expertise centre, CNES (Centre national d'études spatiales) plays a key role on the French and international space scene.
In addition to scientific missions, CNES works in collaboration with Ariane Espace and the European Space Agency (ESA) for access to space, particularly with its launchers from Kourou. It is currently participating in the development of the new Ariane 6 launcher.
These launchers require numerous piping and instrumentation drawings for the design of the installations and for their evolution and to provide data to the control system. As the software managing the piping and instrumentation diagrams has become obsolete, the CNES sites in Toulouse and Kourou have equipped themselves with SchemPID software to maintain the current launch pads and to develop the future launch pads.
In close collaboration with CNES, FTZ transferred the existing data and developed additional functions to SchemPID to match the specific needs of the missions. The CNES teams use SchemPID on a daily basis to maintain the old sites and to define the new installations in an optimal quality approach.
In addition, several subcontractors are equipped with SchemELECT CAD software to provide electrical files and loop diagrams.
