Congressional approval to purchase ten each of both Lockheed Martin’s and Austal’s competing designs for the US Navy’s Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) program is a double win for ShipConstructor Software Inc.
As with previously built Littoral Combat Ships, future vessels in both the Freedom and Independence classes are being 3D modeled and constructed by companies using ShipConstructor’s AutoCAD based CAD/CAM application.
“ShipConstructor dominates the market for US naval construction,” noted Justin Paquin, ShipConstructor's Product Manager. “The majority of the US Navy’s future fleet will be built using ShipConstructor software.”
ShipConstructor is a CAD/CAM software suite that provides tools for production engineering of marine structures. ShipConstructor captures all information relevant to the 3D design, manufacturing, maintenance, repair and refit of complex marine projects inside of a Marine Information Model (MIM). At the heart of the model is a single relational database residing on a Microsoft SQL Server that can be integrated with related business processes and applications.
