FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SOUTHAMPTON, Pa., USA, December 11, 2012 - Environmental Tectonics Corporation's
("ETC" or the "Company") Simulation Division, located in Orlando,
contracted with Rosenbauer International AG ("Rosenbauer") to deliver another
ADMS-HRET simulation training system. The Advanced Disaster Management Simulator
(ADMS) will be delivered to one of Rosenbauer's European customers to train
operating skills for Panther Airport Rescue Fire Fighting (ARFF) vehicles with
Stinger High Reach Extendable Turrets (HRET).
The vehicle-mounted Stinger HRET is used to fight fires inside and outside
aircraft. The HRET includes a penetrator nozzle mounted at the tip of the
joystick-controlled hydraulic boom arm.
This penetrator nozzle is used to shoot
a hole in an aircraft fuselage to apply agent directly to interior fires.
The portable training system includes a turret console with an authentic
Rosenbauer HRET joystick that switches to train students on fuselage penetration
and fire fighting. The virtual reality simulation includes a Panther ARFF Truck
with accurate vehicle and HRET dynamics, and physics based fire fighting with
foam, dry powder, and water. Trainees can drive to the incident, position the
vehicle, and deploy the HRET. A380 and MD11 passenger aircraft are available
with a selection of interior fires and engine fires. Weather conditions and time
of day can also be changed. Exercises can be reviewed from any viewable angle
for optimal debriefing.
"This cost-effective training system is a critical asset to maximize utilization
of the Stinger HRET." said Marco van Wijngaarden, President of ETC Simulation.
"ARFF crews can train while on duty with vehicles staying response-ready.
Training on the simulator improves skills and reduces operational costs."
ADMS(TM) is a high-fidelity Virtual Reality Simulation Training Platform that
comprises multiple products including Incident Command training from technical
to strategic level (ADMS-Command), emergency response and force protection
specific to a military environment (ADMS-Airbase), 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 True
Simulation 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
