TerraTools 4.0.2 Released

OneSAF 5.1 Export and VBS2 Exporter Speedups Included with New Release Structure

Pittsburgh, PA – TerraSim is pleased to announce the release of
TerraTools 4.0.2. This significant update to TerraTools 4.0 contains a
mix of important TerraTools Core bug fixes, enhancements and speedups
based on our new 64-bit native architecture, and version updates to
various exporters. Highlights include:

o Support for export to OneSAF 5.1 (OTF 8.0) with updates to the UHRB
Validation and Upconversion tool. This new version supports dynamic UHRB
placement and updates the TerraTools EDM mapping scripts.

selection during OneSAF OTF creation. This new feature simplifies the
production of OneSAF single cell and multi- cell databases for use
within WARSIM.

creating large area databases with multiple LODs.
o Significant speedups in Export CTDB node for GCS JointSAF export.
o Improvements to Export VBS2 so that databases with large numbers of
unique models pack over 100 times faster using the VBS2 PBO Packer.

exporters for improved processing.

New Release Structure Announced

Since the release of TerraTools 4.0 in April 2011, TerraSim has added
the ability to produce full product updates that can be installed
automatically on customer machines. Given this new technology, we expect
to release TerraTools maintenance updates on a six to eight week
schedule. These updates will include a mix of new product enhancements
and bug fixes.

This new flexibility was illustrated in the rapid release of TerraTools
4.0.1, an important maintenance patch for JCATS users, which was
released just two weeks after the TerraTools 4.0 release.

Under this updated process, all TerraTools patches will be a "rollup" of
all previous patches, streamlining the installation process
significantly. Users can now simply run the update installer instead of
manually identifying and installing patches.
