A Rich History of Innovation
The Raydon Corporation has been a world leader in virtual reality training solutions for military for nearly 30 years. Our innovative approach to virtual training design has yielded several defense market training firsts including the world’s first Convoy Operations Trainer, Route Clearance Trainer, Mounted Machine Gun Trainers, and most recently Stryker Trainers.
Our secret is in deep collaboration with the customers we serve. Our teams of Military Subject Matter and Human Science Experts work closely with our customers to understand their most critical challenges and design innovative solutions to solve those challenges. It is with these solutions that we drive the highest levels of value for our customers, allowing them to continue to be the best in the world at what they do.
Raydon will transform simulation training using customer-focused creativity and interactive data models. We will help redefine what is possible – from the way training is funded to the way it is delivered.
We reconstruct the interface between people and things in a virtual training environment that adds value and reduces risk. Our business model is to solve problems and help our customers succeed.

Purpose Built to Deliver Training Infrastructure
In September 2010, Raydon consolidated all of its operations from four different locations into one new 112,000 square foot (SF) state of the art building purpose built to deliver virtual training infrastructure. The Raydon campus sits on 15 acres located next to Interstate 95 in Port Orange, Forida. It is four miles from Daytona Beach International Airport, providing excellent land and air access to the facilities.
Raydon’s environmentally controlled manufacturing floor comprises 22,600 SF for fabrication. It also has an additional 6,000 SF Machine Shop, 6,900 SF Stock Room, 2,300 SF Shipping & Receiving area and a 12,000 SF Mezzanine used for storage. The production facility includes 9 bays where trailers are assembled with our simulation & training product. The facility also includes a 9,700 SF Integration and Test area where in-house system and software engineers design, develop and produce training systems from concept to final product.
