Ladies and Gentlemen:

Recently Ed Shadle and Keith Zanghi were keynote speakers at COE 2011 Annual PLM Conference and TechniFair.  Held at the beautiful Rosen Creek Resort in Orlando, Florida.  Ed and Keith presented their one hour presentation Challenging the World Land Speed Record.

COE (formerly the CATIA Operators Exchange) is the only international, professional organization uniting the users of Dassault Systèmes software solutions.  With more than 80,000 users in 400 member companies, representing the aerospace, automotive, consumer goods, shipbuilding, industrial machinery, electronic and print design industries, there is no better support community available.

Entrance to COE TechniFair

The first three days of the event consisted of helping out the team from IDEX Solutions; Shaun Twyman, Wes Russell, Robert "Bob" Garrison, Taban Thompson, Chuck Giarratana and Mark TenEyck.  IDEX Solutions maintains and services our CATIA Licenses through Dassault Systèmes.

The 1/12th scale model of the North American Eagle™ built by team member Russ Garlow was a big hit at the TechniFair.  As usual the miniature Eagle was the "hook" which brought attendees to the booth and learn more about the project, and more importantly IDEX Solutions. In addition, IDEX Solutions brought in a large flat screen to show Steve Wallace edited video. It was a great opportunity for Ed and Keith to meet and spend time with the entire IDEX Solutions Team and their customers.

Longtime Friend of the Eagle, Franklin Ratliff

The conference was a huge success and they met and made friends with a number of attendees. Col Joe Kittinger and his wife Sherry honored the two with their presence during the presentation.  Longtime friend of the project, Franklin Ratliff also came by to see Ed and Keith.   Events like these are very time consuming with lots of preparation and high pressure deadlines.  The biggest joy is getting to meet the  wonderful people who come by and let us share our story with.

The team would like to thank our host, IDEX Solutions for their support.
