Simulator-related stuff on the Web


One of our competitors, L-3 MAPPS, issues a periodic brochure on their products. In issue 45, of January 2018, on page 12, there is a discussion of some of the challenges which they (and Singer) faced in the early days of power plant simulation.

To see this, click here, then select "Media Centre" on the top navigation band. From this, select "Newsletters". This brings up two columns; the right one is the power simulation newsletters. Click on number 45 and go down to page 12.

There is a nuclear plant which is being rented out for shooting movies. See here. The power plant itself is described here.



An article about small modular nuclear reactors appears here. It mentions Ft. St. Vrain - Singer bid on that simulator in the early 1970s. A historical summary of the plant, which shows the teething troubles with a new technology, is here.

A 16-minute video of an exercise on the TVA Sequoyah PWR plant simulator. The exercise is training the students on how to handle a large break in the Reactor Coolant System.

Note the cameras mounted above the panels - these are used to record the exercise, so that the students' actions can be analyzed later. Also note a few instructors (the ones not doing anything) who are observing the students.


A history of Systems Engineering Laboratories, the manufacturer of a series of computers used in many simulators, especially on the commercial side, is here. (12/21/2016)


A couple of videos of restored Blue Boxes are here (not available Oct 2013) and here
(Thanks to Thomas Durkin for these)

A description of some simulator internals and some pictures are here. Opens in a new window.

Jeff Beish's page, incorporating several aircraft simulator photos and some history - opens in a new window. (Thanks, Jeff)

Wikipedia has a nice article on flight simulators.


Here is a general description of a flight sim

Some information on really old (not necessarily Link) flight simulators is here and here.

A discussion group for flight sim technicians, including some of the pranks they played on pilot trainees.

Other nuclear power related items

It seems that two separate groups of people took clandestine tours of an abandoned BWR (Shoreham). One video is here and the other is here. They are 47 and 14 minutes long, respectively. (08/30/2017)


Here is a virtual tour of the Nuclear Ship Savannah


Here is a blog about nuclear power
