Thermal Analysis Data Exchange Between ESA and NASA with STEP 1999-01-2125
Two years ago, at ICES 97, a paper was presented describing the status of two companion open standards for electronic exchange and archival of space engineering data based on STEP (ISO-10303) technology. This two standards are:
STEP-TAS: for the definition of space missions and models used in thermal analysis.
STEP-NRF: discipline-independent protocol for the definition of analysis, test or operation cases/models and the bulk results produced by running such cases/ models.
