The Volume Frame of Reference is a Right-hand Coordinate System consisting of a Volume Origin at the location (0,0,0) and mutually orthogonal X
_{
V
}
, Y
_{
V
}
, and Z
_{
V
}
axes in a Right-Hand Coordinate System. The particular IOD using the Volume Frame of Reference may constrain the alignment of frames with respect to the axes of the Volume Frame of Reference. For example, Figure C.8.24.2-1 illustrates the use of the Volume Frame of Reference with frames whose rows are parallel to the X
_{
V
}
axis and columns are parallel to the Y
_{
V
}
axis and whose origins lie on the Z
_{
V
}
axis.
