Windpact's Key Features

Unique Material Data 
We accurately measure dynamic material properties through a proprietary characterization process originally developed for NASA and adopted by Windpact to enhance product development. Our data fuels many of our software tools and the development of our technologies.
 

Advanced Software Tools
Our unique data fuels powerful design and manufacturing software tools used by design and engineering teams, adding capabilities that may never have existed otherwise. 
 

Simulation-Driven Design
Our accurate data feeds predictive models, unlocking the ability to tune material properties within computer models to optimize real-world performance.



Novel Technologies
With our own data, tools, and processes, we develop novel technologies such as the patented Crash Cloud. This makes us a strong innovative entity and our developed technologies can be commercialized across various industries alongside commercial partners.
