Welcome to the Impetus conference 2022

Improve your simulation results with system integrated tools and accurate library data

Accurate and robust simulations of impact, blast and terminal ballistics require proper knowledge, tools and data.

Together, the community of IMPETUS users has a wide knowledge of material and threat behavior in defense applications. If this data can be shared and protected in a controlled manner, it will make the engineering process more efficient and user-friendly.

We would like to demonstrate new and upcoming system tools, such as parametric objects, fragmentation analysis and VAA (Vulnerable Area Assessment).

This meeting also focuses on data distribution on Impetus MARKET. We aim to show currently available objects and to make a forecast of the upcoming volume.

The event is an opportunity to bring together IMPETUS users having expertise on material testing and material calibration, test laboratories, research organizations, universities, agencies, consulting companies, suppliers and OEMs within the defense market.
