ETC Simulation Awarded Contract by Netherlands Institute For Safety to Deliver Six Additional ADMS™Systems
Southampton, PA, USA, June 11, 2012 – Environmental Tectonics Corporation’s (“ETC” or the “Company”) Simulation Division, located in Orlando, FL, has contracted with the Netherlands Institute for Safety (“NIFV”) for the delivery of six additional Advanced Disaster Management Simulator (ADMS(TM)) training systems. The virtual reality training systems will be used at two Netherlands regional fire training organizations, a Regional Fire Safety Centre and a Regional Fire Training Centre, for single- and multi-agency emergency services training.
The ADMS systems feature ETC’s Signature Simulation Technology and the new SmartModel™ library which enhances exercise development and creativity by allowing unlimited scenario capabilities. The chosen simulation systems are portable and allow both in-residence training and deployment to off-site locations. Incident locations within the virtual city include residential, warehouse, highways, airport and seaport, and an underground parking garage, tunnel and metro station.
Eric Didderen, Senior Trainer-Adviser at NIFV said, “The new systems will further enhance our ability to provide training system and didactical support, in this case to two of Netherlands’ largest regional fire training organizations. As with our other systems, these new systems feature ‘true simulation’ through embedded physics, artificial intelligence, and great scenario flexibility that allow trainees to fully immerse themselves in the exercise, with real-time results to their actions. We are very pleased that we are able to offer this level of training support to our clients. Our NIFV-ADMS User Group is expanding rapidly and drives the further development of our services.”
NIFV is a national center of expertise with four Academies: Fire Academy, Academy for Crisis Management, Emergency Medical Service Academy and Academy for Leadership. Since 2001, NIFV has trained thousands of emergency responders and crisis management teams using ADMS technology. With this order, NIFV further increases its training capabilities with more than 30 simulation systems, which are used as individual training stations or networked to provide team training.
“NIFV is a highly respected organization and this contract is once again testament to the value that NIFV places on the quality of ADMS and our support,” said Marco van Wijngaarden, President of ETC Simulation. “We are very pleased with the continued relationship with NIFV and its network of clients in the Netherlands.”
ADMS(TM) is a high-fidelity Virtual Reality Simulation Training Stage that houses multiple products including Incident Command training from technical to strategic level (ADMS-Command), 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 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.
