Hexagon is a global leader in sensor, software and autonomous solutions. We are putting data to work to boost efficiency, productivity, and quality across industrial, manufacturing, infrastructure, safety, and mobility applications.

Our technologies are shaping urban and production ecosystems to become increasingly connected and autonomous – ensuring a scalable, sustainable future.


With a complete range of trusted and accurate aerospace simulation software, Hexagon gives aerospace designers the ability to qualify new lightweight materials, utilise additive manufacturing processes and improve aerodynamics to build quieter and more environmentally friendly passenger aircraft. Unrivalled co-simulation capabilities enable the creation of smarter digital twins to anticipate manufacturing issues and optimise aircraft for both safety and passenger experience.

Over the past years, Hexagon has collaborated closely with many leading aerospace companies and provided dedicated solutions matching this industry's specific needs. The Actran software suite for acoustic simulation enables aerospace manufacturers to design and optimise products with powerful acoustic, vibro-acoustic and aero-acoustic modelling software and solutions. Both its general-purpose simulation features and its unique capabilities make it the industry standard solution to address the specific needs of the aerospace industry. Technology synergies with most structural FEA codes and CFD software match the increasing demand for multi-disciplinary coupled simulation.

Hexagon also provides related services: acoustic CAE consultancy (on-site or off-site), training, specific developments, contract research and provides a range of services in the field of acoustic design. Free Field Technologies is also involved in multiple research programs in acoustics, aero-acoustics, vibro-acoustics, high-performance computing etc. Learn more at hexagon.com.
