Japanese Aerospace Agency Joins the Growing Ranks Using XVL Technology in engineering applications

March 19, 2008, San Francisco, CA - Lattice Technology, developers of XVL and compressed 3D data solutions, announced today that its XVL technology has been licensed to the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), the governmental agency that oversees research, development, and launch of spacecraft. The software employing XVL will be in use at JAXA and offered as a public domain tool.

On February 18, 2008, JAXA released COMGY (COMmmon enGineering theorY), an engineering framework to be used in the concept to preliminary design of large-scale systems such as satellites. The COMGY computer application, jointly developed with Atsushi Morishita, IT consultant, includes a JAXA ‘XVL Viewer’ to view 3D geometrical data.

XVL is an ultra-compressed technology used to dramatically reduce the file size of 3D models created in an engineering CAD system without losing their fidelity. XVL models provide a means for very quick communication and display of the 3D geometry.

“ XVL is receiving rapidly growing use as a format of choice within engineering applications used and developed by manufacturers worldwide, and JAXA is a nice addition to that group,” commented Bill Barnes, General Manager, Lattice Technology US. “It is ideal for use in aerospace and aviation where large groups need to share, review, test and validate 3D engineering data without delay and without any problems with format. XVL delivers exactly what is needed for the handling of large 3D assemblies for critical applications – high accuracy, small footprint and easy usage.”

COMGY links into JAXA’s previously developed SMART technology, an enterprise-wide satellite design support system. COMGY integrates all the essential SMART project information with engineering and analysis tools, including an interactive 3D viewer of satellite components. COMGY also allows JAXA engineers to compile and reuse complete part information, complete measurement and analysis tasks with the clarity that comes with 3D visualization.

The JAXA COMGY toolset and XVL Viewer combination is expected to enhance design process efficiency at JAXA, and extend its benefits into the public sector. Besides design of large-scale systems, the technology is adaptable for use by other manufacturers who need to manage a large volume of 3D data efficiently. A four-month evaluation of the application is available at http://comgy.jaxa.jp.
