ORION, Mich.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—January 18, 2007— SCATE(R) Technologies, Inc. announced today that it has joined the Dassault Systemes CAA V5 Adopter Program.
The agreement between SCATE(R) and Dassault Systemes means that
SCATE(R) will now be able to offer SCATE's MVV(R) (Multi-Vector
Vision) software and services suite to CATIA(R) V5 users. SCATE
released MVV(R) in January 2006 for the NX(R) (previously
Unigraphics(R)) CAD platform, and it has helped some corporations save
well over $500 million by reducing design and development costs, and
by creating cost avoidance opportunities. The agreement with Dassault
Systemes will dramatically increase the market opportunities for
MVV(R) by making it available for the tremendously popular CATIA(R) V5
Multi-Vector Vision is used by organizations that have analysis
and governmental reporting requirements for vision and obscuration
studies such as cockpit/instrument panel visibility, angular forward
vision, 3D visual mass, and day/night visibility. MVV(R) is
revolutionary in that it "quantifies" and "ranks" various designs for
their visual effectiveness in a completely virtual setting using
SCATE's trademarked VMU(R) (Visual Mass Unit) unit of measure. MVV(R)
performs studies on raw computer-aided design (CAD) data, thus
enabling the user to catch vision and ergonomic design flaws before
they reach engineering and prototype phases, or worse... the
"By becoming a CAA V5 Adopter, SCATE has gained access to the
complete CATIA(R) V5 development environment and all of the tools and
support needed to ensure seamless integration with CATIA(R) V5," said
Steve Sadler, SCATE(R) President and CEO. "While the NX(R) market is
substantial, the CATIA(R) V5 market is far larger, and dramatically
expands the potential customer base for MVV(R)," added Sadler.
