The JAS mechanical structure shall implement a coordinate system as a reference point for the design. The mounting of each component should be considered as the coordinate reference. The coordinate frame can originate on a pin-and-slot mounting.
[Placeholder: Defining a coordinate frame helps to determine center of gravity, mass, envelopes and keep outs, and in general for all mechanical model analysis.
Contact SNL if immediate support is needed with this topic. Content will be developed for JT 2.0.]
The figures below show the JAS coordinate system orientation, as located at the primary CSO.
