Oktal Sydac join forces

We are proud to announce that Sydac has been acquired by Oktal joining forces to become a reference in road and rail simulation.

We have a strong worldwide presence with facilities in France, Australia, the UK, India, and NorthAmerica, providing our customers cutting-edge reinforced solutions, covering the full range of road and railtransport segments. Currently, we have delivered over 700 simulators spread across five continents; and that number is set to increase!

As part of the larger Sogeclair group of companies, Oktal Sydac’s focus is directed on two main areas: Training simulators, which serve the current needs of the transport industry, and advanced capabilities within the R&D field.

Oktal is the simulation division flagship of the French Sogeclair group and has acquired Sydac from Knorr Bremse.
This reinforces Oktal subsidiaires which already include OktalSE (reference in terms of synthetic environment rendering software in both Electro-Optic (Visible, Infrared) and Radio-Frequency (Radar, GNSS) domains) and AV Simulation (shared with Renault and leader in Autonomous vehicle simulation)

And… FOUR simulators !

 After a FAT completed in Toulouse in June, the Paratranspo simulator (foreground image) is currently crossing the ocean to reach its final destination : the dedicated and cutting edge of technology training facility of OC Transpo in Ottawa.


We couldn’t be more proud !




SNCF Tram-train simulator commissionning

SNCF was delighted to commission their Tram-train simulator. Full desk replica and 3 monitors enhance the immersion impression for trainees. Definitely a success.





2nd world premiere in APTA

Innovation #2  Oktal presented an Alstom Citadys tram & Ford F150 automobile co-simulation during APTA exhibition.

Co-simulation allows two drivers to interact within the same simulation environment. This feature opens additionnal training possibilities and research opportunities.

It was a pleasure to showcase this high quality solution, thank to Barco who provided us with retro projection equipment.




World Premiere in APTA

Innovation #1 OKTAL can now combine Train Driving simulation and Virtual Reality for a better immersion.

Thanks to OKTAL specific implementation, speed & depth perception are improved with no motion sickness.




Oktal at American Public Transportation Association

The Oktal team has the pleasure to announce you that we will exhibit at APTA the 10 et 11 of June 2018 in Denver, CO. You will have the opportunity to come try our innovative solution at booth 215 !





Calgary Visit @ Oktal France

In April, we have been pleased to welcome the Calgary Transit team in our facilities in Toulouse to validate the ongoing work for their new Simulator.

This second simulator is composed of a compact desk and 9 monitors. The bright and sharp display is a real plus for the trainee immersion.
