L3 MAPPS has always been known for delivering high-quality simulators. With its newest suite of simulation products, the Orchid® product suite, L3 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.
