ETC Simulation Recognized as a Top Simulation and Training Company by Military Training Technology for Third Consecutive Year
SOUTHAMPTON, PA, USA, December 3, 2015 – Environmental Tectonics Corporation’s (OTC Pink: ETCC) (“ETC” or the “Company”) Simulation Division (“ETC Simulation”), located in Orlando, Fla., today announced that they have been honored for a third consecutive year by Military Training Technology magazine for their technological contributions to the military training community. ETC Simulation is the developer of the Advanced Disaster Management Simulator (“ADMS™”), a virtual reality training system for emergency response, disaster management and homeland security.
This year’s award was based on the new Airfield Damage Repair (“ADR”) training capabilities which will be delivered shortly to the United States Air Force Civil Engineering Center at Tyndall Air Force Base. The new simulation will be implemented to train Air Force Civil Engineering staff in effectively commanding and controlling ADR operations, assuring that mission critical airfield infrastructure, including runways and taxiways, are restored rapidly under any conditions. The ADR training system features multiple ADR teams, vehicles, crates of various sizes and explosive ordnance devices. Another new aspect of the simulation is the implementation of a faster-than-real-time exercise clock which allows the training to take place over a condensed period of time while tracking the real-world time of each action and decision made.
“It is our goal to provide the most effective training solutions to both military and civil organizations, from the first responder level up to strategic decision makers and we do that by creating innovative simulations with ADMS.” said Marco van Wijngaarden, President of ETC Simulation. “We are proud to again be recognized for that by Military Training Technology and look to continue our mission of providing the best simulation training platform for military emergency response.”
Military Training Technology is a magazine dedicated to military training as a critical component of command readiness and service transformation, the annual Top Simulation and Training Companies program recognizes the performance within the global training community of businesses that supply products or services to the military training community.
