Technical support to customers is always available via telephone, fax or email. A modem interface feature integrated with a significant number of our interactive systems enables certain software-related diagnostic and maintenance services. To support its customers, Doron has since 1973 maintained a full-time professional staff of factory trained technicians responsible for installation and maintenance of all Doron manufactured systems.
There is no charge for necessary on-site support during the warranty/ service period and any following period covered by a service agreement. Our service personnel are located in close congruence with customer sites to provide high quality, cost-effective service.
All service technicians are employees trained by Doron and possess a background in computer systems and digital and analog electronics as also the necessary mechanical maintenance skills and capabilities for servicing these systems. Members of service and technical support departments have, on an average, more than 20 years of experience with our driving and entertainment simulators. Doron’s field service technicians receive recurring training necessary to keep pace with changing technology.
In addition to the extensive inventory of spares maintained at our facility in Binghamton, New York, each service technician also maintains a stock of selected parts.
To ensure minimal downtime, Doron will, at the time of installation, brief appropriate designated purchaser personnel in performance of basic checks and in some cases, specific system adjustments.

The DRIVER ANALYZER provides the means for teaching, clearly defining, and measuring the three factors which comprise TOTAL STOPPING DISTANCE: (1) Threat Recognition Distance (sometimes referred to as Perception Distance); (2) Reaction Distance (sometimes referred to as Reaction Time); and (3) Braking Distance. It also allows operators to further develop more complex cognitive and perceptual skills.
Bar Coding System
This feature allows instructors to instantly access any scenario or any frame on a disc. Doron’s DVD program guides include predetermined bar codes to access each scenario.
Closed Caption Decoder
Doron programs are encoded with closed captioning. When activated, the closed caption decoder displays, in text form, the narrative of the program.
