The Army plans to use an Advanced Disaster Management Simulator training system from ETC’s simulation business unit to train as many as 800 military and civilian firefighters each year, the company said Wednesday.

The ADMS-Command system will be installed at Fort McCoy’s fire department and support incident command and joint training exercises on how to manage natural disasters, fires, mass casualty events, acts of terrorism, hazardous materials and chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive threats.

ETC designed its ADMS platform with technology that incorporates artificial intelligence, physics-based simulation and photo-realistic graphical features.
