Dassault Aviation and IBM teamed in earning both FAA and EASA approval for 3-D data in the cabin completion process for Falcon business jets.

IBM’s content and archival management software allows Dassault to store, archive and preserve the integrity of the critical 3-D design and data models of its aircraft for the entire lifecycle.

Dassault is the first aircraft manufacturer to receive both FAA and EASA approval based solely on 3-D data throughout the completion process. The approval applies to design work done in the U.S. and includes the Falcon 900 and 2000 series, as well as the 7X.

Dassault plans to archive the 3-D data for the first aircraft later this year. It will be stored in both the U.S. and Europe for more than 70 years.
