As a first possibility to analyze and generate CPACS files, DLR developed the conceptual design module VAMPzero. It is a part of the Release Kit and available under open source license.
VAMPzero is based on well-known handbook equations and has been specifically developed to work in combination with the CPACS format. It is able to interpret more detailed information as well as generating new CPACS data-sets.
VAMPzero can be obtained from software.dlr.de.
