Sentient’s DigitalClone Software as a Service will now be available through Atos sales and support channels globally
Buffalo, New York– August 20, 2020 – Sentient Science today announced that it was chosen as an energy and utilities partner with Atos (AEXAY:OTCMKTS) as part of the new Atos Scaler accelerator program. Atos is a global leader in digital transformation, with 110,000 employees located in 73 countries. It is also the European number one solutions provider in cloud, cybersecurity and high-performance computing. The Atos Scaler program pairs Atos customers and channels with innovative companies, like Sentient Science, to unleash the value of innovation from concept to industry application with accelerated time to market.
Sentient Science provides DigitalClone® for Wind Operations and Maintenance (DC-OM) as a SaaS solution to wind turbine operators, service providers and OEMs to provide a holistic view of the health and remaining useful life (RUL) of an asset’s critical systems and components that may be running with damage. This information is used for predictive maintenance programs to reduce O&M costs and to extend asset life.
With its focus on improved design and improved life of wind turbines, Sentient will work directly with the Atos Energy and Utilities business unit located in Paris, and with Atos DigitalTwin services located in Hamburg. The partnership gives Sentient Science a broad range of Go-To-Market services from Atos including sales and marketing resources, global demonstration venues and complimentary technologies to provide complete customer solutions.
“Atos Scaler aims at answering the surge of demand for modern industry applications by collaborating with best in class technology startups like Sentient Science to co-create innovative digital solutions and services. It aligns completely with our strategy based on decarbonization, efficiency and agility, and will enable us to innovate at a faster pace than ever. We now look forward to working with Sentient and its team to explore the future of the energy and utilities market,” explains Isabelle Warnier, Head of Scaler at Atos.
“Atos is one of the world’s largest and most sophisticated systems integrators”, said Ed Wagner, Sentient’s General Manager of Wind Operations. “Collecting, organizing and ingesting fleet wide data from wind turbines, is a challenge facing our wind operators. Atos will organize the data and Sentient will provide its flagship remaining useful life predictions and actions to extend the life of our customers wind assets.”
About Sentient Science
Sentient Science Corporation provides digital twin technology to predict the life of mechanical systems. Sentient’s DigitalClone® SaaS solutions use proprietary physics-based modeling and machine learning AI to unlock insights that lower the costs of designing, operating, and sustaining high value assets. This visibility also helps customers optimize parts inventories and increase profitability. Furthermore, Sentient Science offers professional scientific services that enable us to partner with customer experts in industries such as Wind Energy, Aerospace, and Rail to develop cost-optimized life extension actions.
Sentient Science is a leader in prognostic solutions with one patent awarded in 2019 for physics-based life prediction and six additional patents pending. Sentient has won more than $22 million in SBIR/STTR funding from the U.S. Government – with agencies including Dept of Energy, Dept of Defense, and NASA. The technology has been recognized by the SBIR program with the 2014 Tibbetts Award, by Bloomberg as New Energy Pioneer Award in 2016, and Frost & Sullivan in 2017 with the New Product Innovations Award for Wind Prognostics.
DigitalClone has 4 Product Offerings:
DC-E DigitalClone for Engineering (DC-E) – a physics-based patented SaaS design solution to model drivetrains and predict individual component life under real-world operating conditions. DC-E delivers a unified workflow for a multiscale analysis from system level to component level through microstructure modeling in a single software package. Customers using this technology have achieved up to 35% cost savings and 65% schedule compression for drive system development programs.
DigitalClone for Wind Operations and Maintenance (DC-OM) – an AI/ML-based digital twin SaaS that detects damage based on the current “as-maintained” configuration of a wind turbine in operation. DC-OM provides a holistic view of the health and remaining useful life (RUL) of an asset’s critical systems and identifies components that may be operating with damage. This enables asset-level health risk assessments that support predictive maintenance programs to reduce O&M costs and extend asset life.
DigitalClone for Rail Maintenance (DC-RM) – a physics-based SaaS scenario planning tool to compare and select best rail maintenance actions based on rail life extension and financial return on investment. DC-RM provides railroads with “Precision Scheduled Maintenance” to maximize the utilization of the rail asset and optimize capital efficiency over the lifecycle.
DigitalClone for Additive Manufacturing (DC-AM) – a multi-scale and multi-physics SaaS model to computationally assess quality and performance of additive manufacturing built-parts. DC-AM uniquely links the process, microstructure and fatigue to provide design and computational testing. Customers indicate that DC-AM can reduce iterations for design optimization by 75% and decrease cost for AM part qualification by up to 50%.
