RadioBro Takes Flight | Startup Gets Off the Ground with Siemens PLM Software

Leveraging digital twin technology to develop and test their products, RadioBro Corporation founders Mark and Eric Becnel are able to significantly reduce their time to market from the average industry standard of months to mere weeks, if not days. Time to market, unique product capabilities and reduced costs have set RadioBro apart from the competition, enabling the start-up to grow in an established industry. The RadioBro story illustrates how IoT is entering and disrupting the aviation industry. 
 
When Becnel twins Mark and Eric realized they wanted to be aerospace engineers in the third grade, they had no idea they would be one day at the helm of their own aviation technology company. While still in college, the Becnel Twins began working with Solid Edge software from Siemens. They now use this same technology, a portfolio of easy-to-use software tools, to address all aspects of the production process and crucial design changes in minutes, including an update to a 2D drawing in under a half hour.
 
Today, the twin brothers use digital twin software to create IoT devices for the aerospace and aviation industry. Aircraft manufacturers then use the RadioBro devices to test their airplanes to ensure the safest flight experience possible.
