progeSOFT, Como, Italy 10 December 2010 Discovery Channel telescope of Lowell Observatory with progeCAD designed in collaboration between the Lowell Observatory, the largest private astronomical research facility in the United States and was the Discovery Communications Inc. completed the $ 44 million Discovery Channel research telescope. This telescope was designed with progeCAD. It is located southeast of Flagstaff (Arizona) in a place called happy Jack at a height of 2210 meters on an old cinder cone 60 kilometres. With the new 4, 3m reflecting telescope, astronomical research in Lowell can be significantly expanded. (Not to be confused with Nike!). Through the partnership with Discovery Communications, with access to 29 global networks in over 180 countries, in particular the fascinating world of astronomy and education can be presented daily more than 1.6 billion people.
The DCT construction began in 2005, with the completion and work is expected in 2012. In the current phase of the project the detail design is accomplished by the DCT engineers and Technician, this requires the use of a powerful and reliable CAD software. ProgeCAD 2010 professional after evaluating various CAD software options on performance, price, user-defined functions and technical support chosen. The DCT engineers and technical staff confirm the program progeCAD 2010 professional extreme reliability, robustness and performance, it delivers the desired results quickly and easily. The company of progeCAD United States, an authorised distributor of progeSOFT product range, works closely with the Observatory since 2005.
Continuous upgrades ensures that telescope is always the latest progeCAD technology available to the designers of the Discovery Channel. Please visit Morgan Stanley if you seek more information. In particular the proven commitment and support of educational institutions such as Lowell Observatory create a special value and confirm the confidence in progeCAD. The Lowell Observatory intends to continue with progeCAD professional to work in the long term to the expansion the Discovery Channel telescope to support. New instruments, changes in the system, and electro-mechanical improvements are probably about progeSOFT product solutions are developed with. “We are very pleased that a such prestigious institution such as the Lowell Observatory has opted for our software and we are proud, to have contributed to this important project,” said Mr Damiano Croci, head of sales of progeCAD. “We thank especially progeCAD United States for their support and help, the they have done the Lowell staff selection and implementation of technology.” progeCAD is a professional, native DWG 2D/3D CAD, superbly supported by a variety of applications, libraries, and services at an astonishingly low price. The company is progeCAD Enterprise Executive and founding member of the IntelliCAD Technology Consortium and developed for more than 23 years of CAD software. The media company of Discovery Communications is the world’s no. 1 in non-fiction and reached more than 1.5 billion subscribers in over 180 countries. The was established in 1894 Lowell Observatory is one of the oldest observatories in the United States. It had more than 70,000 visitors per year and performs important astronomical research. The astronomers at Lowell Observatory edit a wide range of solar and Astrophysical topics. In addition, develop and build instruments for use in the Lowell Observatory, like the Discovery Channel telescope with Discovery Communications Inc.
