Simtec simulation technology GmbH

Simtec Simulation Technology GmbH was founded in 1989. As founding member of Braunschweig Avionics Center Simtec is situated at the Braunschweig Reasearch Airport since 1992.

Simtec developed and manufactured the world-wide unique Dornier 228 Full-Flight-Simulator which was approved by the German Civil Aviation Authority in spring 1994. The simulator components comprise different technical fieldws like aerospace engineering, electronics, IT, hydraulics and mechanics. The Dornier 228 Full-Flight-Simulator is operated by simtec and is used for the training and education of airline pilots from all over the world.

Apart from the successful use in the field of aviation simulation technology plays an important part in the domain of high-quality entertainment. In the last years simtec developed into a specialist concerning the production of hydraulic motion platforms. For example, simtec has built the motion platform for the simulator cinema "Galaxy" for the amusement park "Phantasialand" near Cologne as well as the biggest cabin simulator in the world - "Expo-Jet®" - which was built for the German Pavilion of the Expo ’98 in Lisbon.

Also in the third field of business simulation technology is of great importance. In the summer of 1997 simtec presented the HEXaDRIVE®, a six axes motion platform for industrial test beds. This system enables a replacement of road tests by tests in the laboratory.

Simtec is embedded in the Braunschweig Research Airport activities. By means of the local companies the Research Airport becomes

  • a center of competence for aviation safety
  • a high-technology location for aerospace technology
  • an experimental field for new products and new processes
