AXIS software is LINUX-based. Linux is open source and much better suited to real-time and heavy duty industrial applications than Windows. Due to its flexibility and adaptability Linux is the best runtime environment for simulators. NASA migrated ISS laptops from Windows to Linux.

The replication of the cockpit with OEM-quality simulated aircraft parts together with software-based avionics simulations allows considerable use of Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) parts, and assures the highest working reliability with the lowest maintenance costs throughout the simulator‘s lifecycle.

At the customer’s election AXIS can also use OEM avionics.
