A highly-realistic 3D Tower environment
Airport Driving simulator for driver training
Orion Simulator is a suite of solutions designed for Air Traffic Management training. Orion is a family of products which work together to reduce the expertise and labour required to conduct valuable ATCO training. Our simulator uses the most current and capable technologies so that operating the systems feels comfortable and the simulations feature impressive levels of realism. The design and functionality of Orion are inspired by more than 20 years of experience developing ATC training systems. The Orion Simulator suite is currently in use in Iceland by Isavia ANS and in Spain by FerroNATS.
Orion Creator is an exercise creation tool for the Orion ATC simulator suite. Orion Creator features a modern and unique interface design paired with functionality that makes exercise creation powerful and straightforward.
Users may recreate operational situations by importing recorded live data or picking specific flights from a synchronised database of flights. Multiple flights can be selected with their route visualised on the map providing a complete picture of the air traffic situation to the instructor. The UI is timeline-oriented allowing for easy review and playback of the exercise. Surveillance outages and SIGMET events may be added as exercise milestones.
Highlights of Orion Creator include: A holistic overview of exercises. Features directly-interactable flight path editing, Multi-sector exercises. Recordings of real flight data are used to populate exercises which are for APP and ACC positions.
Orion Creator is currently operated by Isavia ANS in Iceland.
Orion Pilot is a pseudo-pilot interface in the Orion ATC simulator suite. By applying the same design principles that are common across our product portfolio, we created a system that increases both the effectiveness and realism of air traffic simulations.
Managing and minimising workload per pseudo pilot decreases the cost of training and enables multi-sector exercises with less personnel. Following issued clearances is straightforward and the system will suggest the predicted next step of complex clearances. Orion Pilot has a built-in actions log, removing the need for printed or external exercise logs.
The user interface is designed for efficiency, only displaying the options relevant for the current flight leg for a selected aircraft. Orion Pilot is currently operated by Isavia ANS in Iceland.
Orion Tower is suitable for all types of tower ATCO training and for airports of all capacities. Civilian, Military or generic airports for Universities may be modelled as required. Orion Tower features realistic ground traffic movements and the simulation of inclement weather including a variety of invisibility obscuration.
The Orion Tower simulator offers and ultra-realistic user experience. Built in Unreal Engine , Orion Tower benefits from constant progress in performance, functionality and graphical tools. Using this powerful foundation, the 3D simulation may import existing 3D models and can be adapted to the specific needs of customers.
Orion Tower is used by Isavia ANS in Iceland and FerroNATS in Spain.

Orion Driver is a powerful and realistic airport driving simulator for training ground operations personnel. Using the same 3D environment as Orion Tower, the system allows ground staff to train driving new layouts around construction projects and driving procedures to reduce the risks to passengers and airport staff from vehicle traffic.
"By using Orion Driver, we can cut down on our own traffic while providing our people with the correct training environment to prepare them for driving at Keflavik International Airport.”
Anna Björk Bjarnadóttir - Chief Service and Operations Officer at Isavia
Built in Unreal Engine and with the support and security of a global community of users, the simulator features unrivalled graphical fidelity and environmental effects.
Complex ground movements require highly-trained staff. Mission scenarios inspired by real airside incidents may be created and simulated to reduce the chance of future accidents. Driver performance is monitored and reports generated.
