Convert Graphics from NATO Members
Raytheon’s Electronic Warfare Systems is a world leader in the development and production of EW system solutions for strategic and tactical aircraft, helicopters, and surface ships for the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy, and their international counterparts. They chose PDF FLY to move technical graphics from multinational NATO contract vendors into their own commercial AIMSS IETM system as ActiveCGM-compatible CGM files.
PDF FLY was chosen for several key reasons:
- PDF FLY easily handles both PostScript and EPS,
- PDF FLY provides the utmost flexibility for font mapping and embedding
- PDF FLY was very tolerant of a wide variety of source files with a 99%+ successful conversion rate.
- PDF FLY offers a batch mode which converts a large number of files at once.
Raytheon has been a Visual Integrity customer since 1998
The U.S. Coast Guard Aviation Logistics Center in Elizabeth City, MD overhauls and makes major repairs and modifications to all Coast Guard aircraft and associated equipment. They use PDF FLY to convert aircraft manuals illustrations from PostScript, EPS and PDF into the CGM format for authoring in their internal publishing system. Central to their decision to use PDF FLY was its ability to precisely control orientation and scale of output. Font mapping was also key.
The U.S. Coast Guard has been a Visual Integrity customer since 2004.
Airbus, a leading aircraft manufacturer, integrates FLY SDK into a proprietary server application used by their airline customers. When the application is fed PDF and PostScript files, FLY SDK drives the automatic extraction of vector graphics as CGM, raster images as TIFF or JPEG and text as ASCII. Airbus chose Visual Integrity because of excellent support, willingness to collaborate on custom features, multi-platform support (Sun Solaris, Microsoft Windows) and general quality of all output formats.
