Embraer evaluating J2 Aircraft Dynamics

Building on the company's recent high profile international sales successes, the burgeoning, UK based J2 Aircraft Dynamics has recently sold its J2 Universal Tool-Kit software user-licences to Embraer Brazil. The state-of-the-art J2 engineering analysis tool enables the assessment and visualisation of an aircraft in flight, allowing the rapid development of an aircraft's flight dynamics, performance and handling characteristics.

This prestigious J2 sale resulted from a chance encounter at an SAE meeting in Wichita, in August 2006 between a Product Development Engineer of Embraer and John Jeffery of J2 Aircraft Dynamics. As their conversation turned to the Aerospace industry's design and developments process, Embraer's engineer became intrigued by the impressive claims made by John Jeffery related to J2 Aircraft Dynamic's Universal Tool-Kit Software. Consequently an invitation was extended to John, to visit the Embraer plant in São José dos Campos Brazil to put his claims to the test. Following John Jeffery's in depth presentation and rigorous 'hands-on' trials, the consensus amongst the designers within Embraer's impressive Advanced Aerodynamics Design Department was that the J2 software had the potential to meet the departments demanding needs.

By focusing on specific, high growth potential market segments within the commercial, defence, and executive aviation fields, Embraer has become one of the largest aircraft manufacturers in the world. Embraer's Advanced Design Senior Manager – Aerodynamics, Decio Pullin, stated that: "Our J2 Tool-Kit can help our Preliminary Design Group to develop and adapt successful aircraft platforms, reducing the time required to reach a design that will offer a better operating cost and ensure that our customers receive the highest levels of reliability, comfort, and safety. Our future intention is to purchase additional licences, depending on in depth evaluations, future software customisations and on-going commercial discussions."

Boasting a sector leading, short investment payback period, the J2 Universal Tool-Kit is able to eliminate design flaws and poor performance characteristics at a much earlier stage of an aircraft design process. As the ingenious J2 software allows more information to be discovered and evaluated sooner, the cost of design modifications is vastly reduced, whilst the resulting, truncated development process leads to a much earlier 'Time-to Market'.
