Simtra Aviation and Transportation Software Released for Bricscad V10

Gent, Belgium and Goteborg, Sweden, April 14, 2010 -- Bricsys, the Bricscad company, and Simtra, the leading software company for airside planning and vehicle turn paths, announced today that all Pathplanner software from Simtra is now available for Bricscad V10. Until today, the software had been available for MicroStation® and AutoCAD® only.

Developed by Simtra, Pathplanner A5 is the worldwide leader for fast and accurate airside planning and design. The software performs aircraft tracking and jet blast impact using FAA and ICAO clearance standards, the basis for efficient and safe airside layouts. Operational issues such as complex push back procedures can be determined on-the-fly, providing valuable input to airlines and the airports’ operational staff. Detailed gate designs that previously took days are now performed in under an hour and with significantly reduced risk of human error. Included with the software is the Aircraft Data Viewer module, a complete database of all types of commercial aircrafts in-use worldwide.

Pathplanner R4 planning software targets the transportation industry. Through a user-friendly interface, it accurately simulates vehicle turns and sweep paths through its powerful built-in animation capabilities. The software includes an extensive vehicle library of standard designs from most countries.

“We see a growing presence of Bricscad V10 in our industry,” said Mr. Ben van Leest, Managing Director at Simtra. “We are glad we were able to satisfy the increasing demand from our customers to have Bricscad V10 as their platform for our software.” “Simtra’s products are very high-end in one of the most vertical markets, namely aviation and transportation,” added Erik De Keyser, CEO of Bricsys. “Having Simtra’s software running on Bricscad V10 is the proof of the quality of our platform”
