L-3 Communications Linkabit
- Increased efficiency by at least 50%
- Reduced prototype development time by 200%
- Saved money by eliminating costly prototype iterations
- Improved revision control and data management
L-3 Communications Linkabit develops defense communications and electronic warfare systems to protect soldiers and save lives on the battlefield. The increasing sophistication involved in innovating, creating, and manufacturing advanced electronic devices ushered in a new set of challenges for the company. They needed to develop cutting-edge defense communications and electronic warfare systems while working efficiently with the military and defense contracts, and controlling prototyping and development costs.
The company selected the SolidWorks design platform because it is easy to use, is compatible with all major file formats, offers robust sheet-metal capabilities, and provides seamless integration with productivity-enhancing simulation and product data management (PDM) applications. By deploying SolidWorks, Linkabit increased its efficiency by at least 50 percent, reduced prototype development time by 200 percent, saved money by eliminating costly prototype iterations, and improved its revision control and data management functions.
