Is there a way to display the departure angle of a vehicle at separation during a collision simulation?

Yes. Using the Key Results dialog, a vehicle’s “Departure Angle” or “Course Angle” is shown as the kinematics variable Nu.  Nu is the direction of the velocity vector of the vehicle relative to the X axis of the environment model.  The value for Nu at the moment of separation is the Departure Angle.
