LineMap / LocateTool

Localization of any damage or repair for Airbus A320, 330, 350

LineMap is a solution for localization of damage on composite aircrafts. Due to the lack of surface features on composite aircraft structures, identifying the location of the damage can be difficult. Line MAP answers this problem by integrating the aircraft Digital Mock-Up for precise damage location.


The Line Map tool is comprised of a tablet PC and a measuring device. The measuring device is attached to the aircraft where the damage has occurred. Once installed the user follows instructions displayed on the tablet to select predetermined reference points and using the measuring device make the measurements. Line Map will then calculate the exact location based on the 3D Digital Mock-Up and allow the user to take pictures to be attached to the damage report.
