Building space-rated products collaboratively using a data-driven systems engineering approach with Stefan Siarov

In this episode we talk to Stefan Siarov. Stefan holds a Master’s degree in Aerospace Engineering from Delft University of Technology, and a MSc. in Industrial Engineering from Ghent University. As an aerospace engineer, Stefan has fulfilled a variety of roles. During his time at the European Space Agency, he did research on 3d printing for in-space manufacturing with high performance thermoplastics and assessed the use of these 3D printing materials for radiation shielding. He did this while being part of the leadership team of an innovation team called Spaceship EAC, at the European Astronaut Centre. Currently he is working at Valispace as systems engineer and marketing manager. Valispace is a browser-based software that enables engineers to collaboratively design better satellites, rockets and other complex hardware products. Since then, organisations such as Airbus, Gomspace, DLR, LuxSpace, Momentus and others have become their customers.  The practice of engineering today is limited by its tools. Tools designed for a different time and era especially when it comes to the space community where compartmentalisation is a common feature. This feature has limitations when it comes to collaboration when engineering complex systems. The more complex a product becomes, the more engineers need to work together. Valispace allows engineers to collaboratively develop better complex hardware products, including rockets and satellites. It serves as a Single Source of Truth and allows engineers to store and collaborate along the engineering life-cycle, all the way from requirements, through detailed design up to verification and testing. Valispace reduces hardware development costs by >20%, by digitising non-CAD data, using browser-based collaboration and complementary integrations to common engineering tools. It supports interdisciplinary teams throughout the engineering lifecycle, from requirements management, through detailed design up to automatic verification. In short: it is Github for Hardware. Valispace has been named in Forbes as one of Germany’s 100 most innovative Startups in 2018, featured in Wired and Techcrunch and has won multiple startup awards.
