With worldwide presence, a solid leadership position and the ability to provide any level of customer support, L3 MAPPS ensures the success of your simulator projects. Our simulators offer the highest quality in simulation fidelity and training to provide trainees and instructors with user friendly tools for learning, controlling and exploring complex power plant systems.

The superior training environments of our simulators provide clear advantages for operator licensing, optimizing plant operating procedures and reducing costs. Operators trained on L3 MAPPS simulator environments gain the skills necessary to increase plant performance, minimize downtime, and provide confident emergency response.

Simulator uses include interactive team training, severe incident management, plant design testing, and startup/shutdown optimization. L3 MAPPS' replica-quality hardware controls and touch-screen virtual panels create realistic and credible control environments.

Real-time response to operator actions and interactive instructor control ensure maximum training effectiveness and adaptability. Any scenario, no matter how complex or dangerous in a real plant, can be reproduced, monitored and varied in real-time, providing a valuable tool for training and plant engineering.

Our commitment to customer support extends far beyond industry norms. L3 MAPPS' unique knowledge transfer program allows customers to gain expertise and total confidence in the simulator. Users can directly implement simulator modifications to exactly reflect plant changes, evolve their training programs and expand simulator use into other areas.

Simulator Upgrades

simulator upgrades

Evolving training needs, greater fidelity expectations, changing standards, plant modifications, plant fuel updates, obsolescence and plant life extensions are some of the realities the simulation industry now faces. To keep up, simulator owners need to take advantage of rapid advances in computing technology and implement cost-effective updates.

L3 MAPPS provides updates to legacy simulator platforms, including computer hardware, the instructor station and/or the control room panel interface system. L3 MAPPS upgrades take advantage of available computing power to improve the modeling fidelity of the reactor core, nuclear steam supply systems and all other plant systems.
