The objective of LOTAR International is to develop standards for Long-Term Archiving and Retrieval (LOTAR) of digital data, such as 3D CAD and PDM data. These standards will define auditable archiving and retrieval processes. Use of the standard series by other branches of industry such as the automotive or shipbuilding industry is possible.
The documents for the standard are published as the EN9300 series and, in cooperation with the AIA, also as the National Aerospace Standard (NAS).
LOTAR International is a project being conducted by leading OEMs and suppliers in the aerospace and defense industry under the joint auspices of ASD-STAN, AIA, PDES Inc., AFNeT and the ProSTEP iViP Associations.
