ETC Simulation to Showcase ADMS at the Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference
Southampton, PA., USA, November 28, 2012 – Environmental Tectonics Corporation’s (“ETC” or the “Company”) Simulation Division, located in Orlando, FL, will showcase the Advanced Disaster Management Simulator (ADMS(TM)) at the Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC). The conference is taking place at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL, and runs from December 3 through December 6, 2012.
ETC Simulation will be exhibiting, alongside other divisions of ETC, at booth 2841. Featured at this year’s I/ITSEC will be ADMS-Airbase, new CBRNE capabilities, Riot Control, and Force Protection. ADMS-Airbase, designed for training for specific emergency situations on an airbase environment, is currently in use at USAF, US DoD Fire Academy, USAFE, Ramstein AFB, and the Royal Netherlands Air Force (RNLAF). Chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive (CBRNE) incidents have recently been added to the ADMS system, and will soon be used to train at the Dutch Ministry of Defense Joint CBRNE School.
Live demonstrations will be offered to provide attendees with an up close look at what makes ADMS a unique simulation training system and how it enhances all hazards, all-agency preparedness. ADMS True-Simulation Technology provides trainees with a most realistic and immersive experience, which results in a steep learning curve. Embedded physics and artificial intelligence adds to the training realism, which supports a direct transfer of lessons learned to real-world command and control. Any organization can benefit from ADMS training as it will optimize training effectiveness and reduce overall costs.
Full system demonstrations will also be taking place at the ADMS Innovation Center, also located in Orlando. Attendees will be able to experience ADMS in the Immersion Theater which includes a 180 degree screen, multiple command stations, and an Integrated Operations Center.
ADMS(TM) is a high-fidelity Virtual Reality Simulation Training Platform that comprises multiple products including Incident Command training from technical to strategic level (ADMS-Command), emergency response and force protection specific to a military environment (ADMS-Airbase), driver training and vehicle operation (ADMS-ARFF and ADMS-Drive) and multiple level police coordination for crowd management and riot control (ADMS-Control). ETC’s signature True Simulation Technology blends physics-based simulation, embedded artificial intelligence, accurate animations, photo-realistic graphics, ambient sounds, vehicle controls, and motion platforms to totally immerse trainees in the exercise. ADMS enables first responders and emergency managers to prepare at all levels of response in a safe, economical and environmentally-conscious way.
