As Geoff Brian has outlined previously, DSTO is in the process of developing aircraft datasets, including aircraft configuration properties, aerodynamics, propulsion and mass properties in DAVE-ML for use with their simulation codes.  We are also developing a C++ library, named Janus, to interface with these datasets.
In undertaking this work, we have started looking at encapsulating stores load-out information in an XML format.  This information includes the mass properties of the stores (i.e. external fuel tanks etc), as well as details of the external stores stations on which particular stores may be carried and the required carriage equipment (i.e. pylons and racks).  This information is a more specific application than the DAVE-ML format was developed for, and may require its own syntax and markup.
We are interested to know if anyone else has looked at this problem?

Kind Regards,
Hilary Keating
