- NGRAIN Virtual Damage Repair and Tracking Software to be deployed on United States Air Force aircraft
"Applying NGRAIN solutions to the F-22 program is a natural progression of our relationship and will enhance the overall maintenance programs of both the F-35 and F-22," said Jeff A. Babione, vice president of the F-22 Program, Lockheed Martin. "Extending this unique application to both programs will result in United States Air Force maintainers being able to easily transition between aircraft."

The IMIS software suite designed by Lockheed Martin supports the exterior maintenance, supply and training operations for its aircraft. NGRAIN will configure its software to provide aircraft maintainers of the F-22 with a detailed exterior representation of the aircraft which will be deployed on a ruggedized Microsoft Windows -based device. Maintainers will be able to accurately map damage of the aircraft exterior on the digital representation provided by NGRAIN. The automatic transfer of data and its subsequent integration with the F-22 IMIS software platform is designed to improve the accuracy in data capture and overall workflow.
"This contract is a testament to the innovative technology and strong relationship NGRAIN has developed with Lockheed Martin," said Paul Lindahl, CEO, NGRAIN. "At the same time it is also recognition of the benefits that can be realized from being a member of the F-35 program. As our relationship continues with Lockheed Martin, the United States Air Force, and with NATO countries around the world, we look forward to setting a new standard for aircraft maintenance using interactive 3D technology."
