Isavia and Tern Systems sign software service agreement for Orion Driver
Isavia and Tern Systems have signed a software service agreement for Tern to deliver the newest version of its airport driving simulator, Orion Driver, to Isavia for training at Keflavik Airport.
Anna Björk Bjarnadóttir, Isavia´s Chief Service and Operations Officer, and Magnús Már Þórðarson, Tern Systems´CEO, signed the agreement on behalf of the two companies.
The product supports airport operations as a tool for enhanced theoretical and practical training. It is expected that Orion Driver will help to further increase safety at Keflavik Airport.
Experts in ground operations from Isavia have supported the development of Orion Driver. This contract is the latest milestone in the long term cooperation between the companies.
"At Isavia, we are very pleased with the collaboration we have with Tern Systems and the technology they have to offer. With the Orion driving simulator, we are improving and modernising the driver training at Keflavik International Airport," says Anna Björk.
"Today, all driver training takes place on the airfield when traffic is low, which is not the real-world situation airport staff will face during peak-hours," adds Anna Björk. "By using the simulator, we can cut down on our own traffic while providing our people with the correct training environment which will prepare them for driving at Keflavik International Airport.”
