ETC Simulation announces the delivery and acceptance of the ADMS Training System to Royal Netherlands Air Force
Southampton, Pa., USA, June 20, 2013 – Environmental Tectonics Corporation’s (OTC Pink: ETCC) (“ETC” or the “Company”) Simulation Division, located in Orlando, Fla., has delivered to the Royal Netherlands Air Force (“RNLAF”) an Advanced Disaster Management Simulator (“ADMS”). The RNLAF’s modified ADMS-Airbase will be used to train fire and rescue services personnel.
The portable ADMS-Airbase system located at the RNLAF Fire Academy at Woensdrecht Air Force Base can be transported and utilized by other bases within the Netherlands. The training system is modified with RNLAF emergency response vehicles and personnel. Among the features developed for the RNLAF training system is the use of thermal imaging camera, which will be used to assist responders in recognizing hot spots on both aircrafts and structures as well as to search for missing persons. Additional military aircraft have been added including the F-16, Chinook CH-47 and Apache AH-64D helicopters, as well as the Pilatus PC-7 and KDC-10 airplanes.
Major Venmans, Commander of the RNLAF Fire Academy stated, “We are very pleased with the end-result. ETC adapted the simulation to meet our training needs including interactive response vehicles with crews that look and behave like our real assets and a collection of RNLAF aircraft that can be used to create emergencies and crashes. Our requirements also included extensive after action review capability including voice recording. The user friendliness is rated as superb by our instructors that can create new exercises within 15 minutes. We are looking forward to many hours of quality simulation training.”
ADMS-Airbase consists of a military base with hangars, aircraft shelters, support facilities, ammunition storages, runways and nearby residential housing. As with all ADMS systems, Airbase features ETC’s Signature Simulation Technology which includes the Scenario Generator with the SmartModel™ Library. The SmartModel Library allows the user to inject additional objects such as aircrafts, vehicles, casualties, and multiple hazards to create unlimited scenarios.
