ETC Simulation Recognized As a Top Simulation and Training Company by Military Training Technology for 2nd Consecutive Year
Southampton, Pa., USA, November 25, 2014 – Environmental Tectonics Corporation’s (OTC Pink: ETCC) (“ETC” or the “Company”) Simulation Division, located in Orlando, Fla., today announced that they have been honored for a second consecutive year by Military Training Technology (MT2) magazine for their technological contributions to the military training community. ETC Simulation is the developer of the Advanced Disaster Management Simulator (ADMS™), a virtual reality training system for emergency response, disaster management, and homeland security.
This year’s award was based on a combination of a new firefighting simulator and newly added capabilities to the ADMS system. The new capabilities, including a thermal imaging view and the simulation of a Remote Control Vehicle for Explosive Ordnance Disposal operations, were introduced based on the evolving requirements of current ADMS Users. ETC Simulation’s newest product, ADMS-Fire, is the augmented reality firefighter training simulator that provides firefighters with an effective training system for tactical firefighting and ventilation techniques. ADMS-Fire uses motion-based sensor technology to provide the most realistic virtual reality training experience available today.
“It is our ambition to provide effective training solutions to both military and civil organizations, from the first responder level up to strategic decision makers,” said Marco van Wijngaarden, President of ETC Simulation. “We do that by creating innovative solutions built on our proven ADMS simulation platform that has been around for 20 years. Using one platform allows us to combine and expand any of the simulators we build. We have a great team of enthusiastic people here at ETC, always looking for the next generation of simulation, and we are grateful to be recognized for that by MT2. We thank Military Training Technology greatly for again recognizing our innovation and success.”
Military Training Technology is a magazine dedicated to military training as a critical component of command readiness and service transformation. The annual MT2 Top Simulation and Training Companies program recognizes the performance within the global training community of businesses that supply products or services to the military training community.
