October 9, 2012 – ETC Simulation Contracted By U.S. Air Force Europe (USAFE) To Deliver ADMS Training System
Southampton, Pa., USA, October 9, 2012 – Environmental Tectonics Corporation’s (“ETC” or the “Company”) Simulation Division, located in Orlando, FL, has been awarded a contract from the United States Air Force Europe (USAFE) to deliver an Advanced Disaster Management Simulator (ADMS™).
The portable ADMS-Airbase training system will be delivered to USAFE at Ramstein Air Base in Germany for use in emergency management and disaster response training. ADMS-Airbase provides realistic training with an authentic military base environment that includes hangers, residential areas, runways and military specific aircraft including C-130, F-15, F-16, B-52, A-10 and Cougar. The ADMS-Airbase system will be used to train and prepare emergency responders and incident commanders for a variety of incidents including aircraft accidents, mass casualty situations, road traffic accidents, structural and wildland fires, terrorism and protestors. The training simulator will also be used by USAFE to train for specific chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive (CBRNE) incidents.
USAFE chose a portable system to allow both on-base training and deployment to off-site locations. The ADMS-Airbase system features ETC’s Signature Simulation Technology including the SmartModel™ library, which enhances exercise development and creativity by allowing unlimited scenario capabilities. SmartModel library objects and elements, such as aircraft or dirty bombs, can be added to any scenario to create additional challenges for the trainees.
“ADMS-Airbase is a highly realistic training system designed to prepare military facilities for situations that are nearly impossible to train for,” said Marco van Wijngaarden, President of ETC Simulation. “We are very pleased that we were selected by USAFE. The network of DoD users is growing which allows for the sharing of exercise scenarios and best practices within the user community.”
