BAE Systems First to Deploy Corena S1000D Technical Publications Suite in the UK

Farn­bor­ough, UKBAE Sys­tems has become the first air­craft organ­i­sa­tion in the UK to deploy the new Core­na S1000D tech­ni­cal pub­li­ca­tions suite, allow­ing it to pro­vide major com­mer­cial air­craft man­u­fac­tur­ers with tai­lored solu­tions for their tech­ni­cal pub­li­ca­tions require­ments.

S1000D is an inter­na­tion­al­ly recog­nised spec­i­fi­ca­tion for the pro­cure­ment and pro­duc­tion of tech­ni­cal pub­li­ca­tions. Orig­i­nal­ly devel­oped for the mil­i­tary mar­ket, it is now used by sev­er­al major com­mer­cial air­craft man­u­fac­tur­ers. BAE Sys­tems’ acqui­si­tion of the Core­na soft­ware gives the Com­pa­ny the capa­bil­i­ty to pro­duce S1000D-com­pli­ant tech­ni­cal pub­li­ca­tions in a range of flex­i­ble mod­ern for­mats.

The use of Core­na soft­ware com­ple­ments BAE Sys­tems’ abil­i­ty to offer com­plete air­craft design and engi­neer­ing capa­bil­i­ties from con­cept through to in-ser­vice sup­port as one of the few organ­i­sa­tions in Europe to offer a true through life cycle sup­port solu­tion.

The Core­na S1000D pub­lish­ing suite offers key func­tions such as man­ag­ing, author­ing, view­ing, pub­lish­ing and deliv­ery of S1000D Data Mod­ules. The Core­na S1000D CSDB soft­ware pro­vides pre-con­fig­ured data mod­ule sets allow­ing author­ing of all ver­sions of S1000D.

This ful­ly inte­grat­ed solu­tion allows rules cre­at­ed by project man­agers to be effec­tive­ly and auto­mat­i­cal­ly car­ried out from start-up through author­ing to final deliv­ery. Pre­cise con­trol of pub­li­ca­tions allows deliv­ery in for­mats from elec­tron­ic data exchange of data mod­ules, PDF and Inter­ac­tive Elec­tron­ic Tech­ni­cal Man­u­als.

BAE Sys­tems has many decades of expe­ri­ence in the glob­al avi­a­tion mar­ket­place, and cur­rent­ly pro­vides tech­ni­cal pub­li­ca­tions to more than 160 cus­tomers in 80 coun­tries.

Hav­ing a strong under­stand­ing of both Air Trans­port Asso­ci­a­tion (ATA) and S1000D doc­u­men­ta­tion stan­dards, BAE Sys­tems is able to offer solu­tions rang­ing from the con­ver­sion of ATA doc­u­men­ta­tion to S1000D elec­tron­ic for­mat.
