Superior Training Systems from the World’s Leading Simulation CompanyL-3 MAPPS simulators provide superior real world power plant training. L-3 MAPPS offers a variety of products and services including full scope simulators, part-task trainers, simulator retrofits and upgrades. We provide conception to completion turnkey systems, specific components, and simulator design tools as required by the customer. With worldwide presence, a solid leadership position and the ability to provide any level of customer support, L-3 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 L-3 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. L-3 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. L-3 MAPPS’ unique knowledge transfer program allows customers to gain expertise and total confidence in the simulator.
Simulator UpgradesThere are many nuclear power plant simulators worldwide developed by different companies. Rapid advances in computing technology now permit simulator owners to get maximum value from their simulators by implementing cost-effective updates. Evolving training needs, greater fidelity expectations, changing standards, plant modifications and plant life extensions fuel simulator updates.
Now, it’s possible to evolve your simulator to the state-of-the-art in an economical manner.

L-3 MAPPS has always been known for delivering high-quality simulators. With its newest suite of simulation products, the Orchid® product suite, L-3 MAPPS continues this tradition with a complete, cutting-edge simulation software environment.The Orchid® tools have been designed to be highly integrated with one another to create an effective and efficient working environment. Each tool follows a standardized approach, providing the same guidelines for menu structure, icons, documentation and even training material. By focusing on the use of common icons, layouts, themes and menus, we have been able to minimize our users’ learning curve in adopting the Orchid® products.Advanced ModelsAt the heart of your life-like simulated plant, only the highest performance primary system models will do. L-3 MAPPS' advanced reactor (Comet™ and Comet Plus™) and thermal-hydraulic (ANTHEM™) models unlock maximum fidelity and performance from your simulator. The models are based on first principles and advanced numerical techniques, and are extensively proven with installations worldwide.
Simulator DCS Solutions
Whether a plant and simulator is being modernised with a distributed control system (DCS) or a simulator is needed for a new plant build with DCS(s), L-3 MAPPS has the know-how to provide the right solution for you.
Distributed control systems (DCSs), sometimes known as digital control systems, are now being applied extensively to nuclear power plant refurbishments and new plant builds. L-3 MAPPS has been engaged in numerous simulator projects - both modernisations and new full scope simulators - that require the implementation of DCSs from various vendors. There are different techniques for adding DCSs to the process simulation and for ensuring that the process simulation and the DCS interact correctly. Through our meetings with people in the power generation industry, we have found that these techniques are not always that apparent. Some of these techniques are reviewed below.
