Shock Response for DADiSP

DADiSP, the venerable "Engineering Spreadsheet" has had one product anouncement this year- a new add-on for Shock Response Spectrum Analysis.

Given that they don't produce much software (the last upgrade for the principle product was 2002) and all other add-ons are quite general (eg fuzzy logic) or utilities (like .wav import), it is suprising to pick a very narrow and specific topic.

My guess is that this was a spin-off from some consulting rather than the start of a new direction for the company.

DADiSP has a small core of enthusiastic users, but has never made much mass impact. This niche add-on will likely go un-noticed by the world.
