APEX,Embraer, an aircraft manufacturer with more than 11,000 employees in Brazil, has signed a deal to license EnSight and EnSight Gold software from CEI in Apex.

Embraer, which purchased the licenses from CEI distributor Engineering Simulation and Scientific Software, said it would use the CEI products in its virtual reality center. The company said the software would help engineers “visualize an aircraft’s structure and systems early in the development phase, increasing quality and saving time and money.”

The company said it already has used EnSight to analyze how to cool brakes on landing gear. Embraer also has used CEI’s EnLiten software to view simulation models and EnVideo software to prepare animation.
