ETC Simulation Awarded Contracts by Rosenbauer America to Deliver Two More ADMS-HRET Stinger Simulators

Southampton, Pa., USA, July 24, 2013 – Environmental Tectonics Corporation’s (OTC Pink: ETCC)(“ETC” or the “Company”) Simulation Division, located in Orlando, Fla., has been awarded two additional contracts from Rosenbauer America (“Rosenbauer”) for the delivery of two ADMS-HRET simulation training simulators. The simulators will be delivered to Miami International Airport in Miami, Fla. and George Bush Intercontinental Airport, in Houston, Tex., where the ADMS-HRET simulators will be used to train operating skills for the Panther Airport Rescue Fire Fighting (“ARFF”) vehicles with the Stinger High Reach Extendable Turret (“HRET”).
The Rosenbauer Stinger HRET includes a penetrator nozzle mounted at the tip of the joystick-controlled hydraulic boom arm. The penetrator nozzle is used to create a hole in the aircraft fuselage to apply agent directly to interior fires.
The portable training system includes a turret console with authentic Rosenbauer HRET joystick and a ADMS laptop that can be connected to an external visual display system. The virtual reality simulation includes the Panther ARFF vehicle with accurate vehicle and HRET dynamics, as well as physics based firefighting with foam, dry powder and water. Trainees can drive to the incident, position the vehicle, operate the HRET and deploy the agents. The system also includes several passenger aircraft that can be generated within the scenario that have crashed with a broken fuselage, interior and exterior fires. The after-action review tool can replay an exercise from any viewable angle for optimal debriefing.
The Stinger HRET simulator is built upon the proven Advanced Disaster Management Simulator (“ADMS”) and is expandable with bumper turret, steering wheel and pedals, airport terrain, and aircraft types. All ADMS systems can be purchased using various grant funding.
