ETC’s Simulation Division Awarded Contract by the Netherlands National Institute for Safety to Deliver Six ADMS Simulators and Upgrade ADMS Software
Southampton, PA, June 01, 2010 — Environmental Tectonics Corporation’s (OTC Bulletin Board: ETCC) (“ETC” or the “Company”) Simulation Division today announced the signing of a contract with the National Institute for Safety – NIFV, Netherlands. The contract includes the delivery of six additional Advanced Disaster Management Simulator (ADMS™) Simulators and expanding the current NIFV-ADMS software.
NIFV is a national center of expertise that utilizes ADMS for training, education and research. NIFV upgrades and expands ADMS frequently in order to keep their system and their training state-of-the-art. With ADMS, NIFV trains students for its Academy for Crisis Management, Fire Academy, and Emergency Medical Service Academy. Since 2001, NIFV has trained thousands of trainees with their mobile ADMS team training suites, particularly in the area of multi-agency command and control. NIFV also provides ADMS to the Netherlands Police Academy and several Regional Emergency Response organizations.
ADMS President, Marco van Wijngaarden, commented, “We are very pleased to deliver the sixth major upgrade to NIFV. Within this contract, we will deliver a new Scenario Generator including the ability to place props such as vehicles, persons and street furniture at the incident location in order to create fresh scenario conditions. The created scenarios can be saved and shared within the NIFV-ADMS User Group. We will also deliver six more ADMS Systems that can be networked for team training. NIFV has been an ETC customer for many years and we value our ongoing relationship.”
ADMS, the Advanced Disaster Management Simulator is a Virtual Reality Simulation Training Stage. A unique level of immersion is achieved by ETC’s signature technology by blending physics-based simulation, embedded artificial intelligence, accurate animations, photo-realistic graphics, and ambient sounds. ADMS enables first responders and emergency managers to train and rehearse at all levels of response, in a safe, economical and green way.
