Aerospace & Defence

Organisations in the Aerospace & Defence Industry must stay competitive through: Continual investment in new designs and technology innovations; Significantly cut costs and shorten time from design to first flight; Compliance with industry standards; Reduced production costs and assembly planning; Better product documentation such as assembly instructions, parts catalogs, training materials and product manuals; Synchronisation of vast amounts of complex data and 3D images across a global virtual network of designers, developers, manufacturing engineers, production specialists and service/support teams to facilitate the creation of such materials.

The Cortona3D RapidAuthor suite helps solve these issues by directly accessing data from CAD/PLM and making it available for downstream use across all documentary requirements from 2D to fully interactive 3D content: Savings of up to 80% by re-using existing engineering and BOM data; Simultaneous production of product design and product documentation enabled by Engineering-change linked documents; Drastically reduced rework/re-illustration; Lightweight 3D data for easier deployment to web portal; Compliance with industry standards such as ATA and S1000D; Full support for iPad deployment enables you to support next generation demand for technical publications such as in-cockpit information.
