ETC Simulation delivers Airport Fire Truck Simulator for Kuala Lumpur International Airport
Southampton, Pa., USA, February 18, 2014 – Environmental Tectonics Corporation’s (OTC Pink: ETCC)(“ETC” or the “Company”) Simulation Division, located in Orlando, Fla., has delivered for Kuala Lumpur International Airport an ADMS-ARFF simulation training system to Rosenbauer International AG (“Rosenbauer”) in Austria.
The Rosenbauer Panther simulator will be used to train the operation of an Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting (“ARFF”) truck as well as tactical positioning in the event of an aircraft emergency. The full cabin simulator will have the same layout as the real Panther vehicle as used by Malaysian Airports Holdings Berhad (“MAHB”), including a functional dashboard and center console with controls for the roof and bumper turrets. Also featured in the simulation is a geo-specific environment of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport and an Incident Commander response vehicle specifically designed to reflect those found in Malaysia.
“The full cabin ARFF simulator allows the airport fire and rescue vehicle operators to build the experience and gain the confidence necessary to perform under extreme conditions in a variety of situations, and ultimately be better prepared for real-life incidents and live-exercises. ADMS-ARFF is a green airport solution, as no fire suppression agents or live burns are involved to acquire the training necessary to operate an ARFF truck, thus saving money, minimizing risk and protecting the environment.” said Lori Bozenbury, Director of Business Development at ETC Simulation.
Located in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur International Airport is the largest airport in Malaysia and regularly ranks as one of the busiest airports in the world for international travelers.
