ETC Simulation Contracted by United States Air Force Civil Engineering Center to Deliver Airfield Damage Repair Simulation Training System
Southampton, Pa., USA, December 2, 2014 – Environmental Tectonics Corporation’s (OTC Pink: ETCC) (“ETC” or the “Company”) Simulation Division, located in Orlando, Fla., has been awarded a contract by the United States Air Force Civil Engineering Center (“AFCEC”) located at Tyndall Air Force Base to deliver an Airfield Damage Repair (“ADR”) Simulator. The virtual reality simulator will be used to train Air Force Civil Engineering staff to effectively command and Control ADR operations, assuring that mission critical airfield infrastructure, including runways and taxiways, are restored rapidly under any conditions.
The ADR training system will be based on the proven Advanced Disaster Management Simulator (“ADMS™”) system currently used at the United States Department of Defense (“DoD”) Fire Academy located at Goodfellow Air Force Base. The ADMS-Airbase system, which includes the fictitious Norma Brown Airbase tabletop model, will be modified to meet the new ADR requirements, including the addition of multiple ADR teams, vehicles and warehouses stocked with the supplies necessary for various types of repairs.
New objects will be added to the SmartModel™ Library, including craters of various sizes and types, and explosive ordnance devices which can be inserted into the exercise to further challenge trainees. In addition, the implementation of a faster-than-real-time exercise clock will allow the training exercise to be compressed into a shorter period while still tracking the real-world time of each action and decision that the trainees make.
“We are very pleased with this opportunity to support AFCEC in their efforts to modernize and enhance the current ADR training program. This requirement will amplify the core capabilities of our ADMS system and extend the benefits of training with ADMS-Airbase to additional areas within the DoD. We appreciate the continued trust that the USAF has placed in our company, and we are committed to delivering a training solution that will assist AFCEC in being mission ready at all times.” said Lori Bozenbury, Director of Business Development at ETC Simulation.
