SimiGon’s flagship product, SIMbox, is a PC-based software platform that provides the ability to create and customize simulation-based content for training, education, and R&D in various industries, including aerospace, automotive, and defense. SIMbox’s interchangeable components enable non-developers to create a wide range training scenarios led by Virtual Instructor (VI) using wizards and user-friendly software tools. “Our toolkit is the equivalent of Microsoft Office for the simulation world, democratizing the ability to create training and simulation content, with zero programming knowledge required,” says Nussbaum.
To address the needs of the highly demanding and fast-growing simulation market, SimiGon has adopted a SaaS model. Delivering a high-end 3D graphics and simulation engine, tools to create new content which is monitored and controlled by Learning Management System (LMS), enable SimiGon to create a reliable and robust training solution. The company has all hands on deck, engaging new customers and markets and also adds to its reliability and trust through remote and onsite support teams. This has brought an increase in the demand for SimiGon’s solutions.

“Your training systems saved so many lives.” These words are common for SimiGon, an organization that provides a broad gamut of solutions for teams ranging from pilots to technicians, in addition to in-flight entertainment and R&D for civilian unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) applications. Comprehensive training is provided to technicians on operations such as refueling, tire changing, and de-icing, leading up to advanced avionics testing. Apart from aviation, technicians from other industries are empowered with hands-on experience to accelerate the training process and develop new skills. “The technician bears a huge responsibility as his work has multi-million dollar equipment and human lives at stake,” says Nussbaum. “The training investment is minuscule compared to the cost of a disaster—from financial impact to injuries and even loss of life,” he adds, while discussing how accidents can be avoided with better training. Furthermore, the solutions help cover the complete training process using simulations, reducing and in some cases, eliminating the need for live training processes, enabling organizations to save millions of dollars in the process.
On a mission to provide transformational training to the world, SimiGon is growing the list of industries it caters to, recently adding soft skills and do-it-yourself markets to its clientele. Nussbaum highlights the use of simulation-based training for improving driving skills, training restaurant host/hostesses, or even building a rock wall for a home garden. For SimiGon, the possibilities are endless which keeps them excited about future opportunities.
