ETC: ETC Simulation Contracted by Concordia University to Expand ADMS Training System with Utilities Capabilities

For Immediate Release

SOUTHAMPTON, PA, USA
, August 27, 2015 -Environmental Tectonics Corporation's

(OTC Pink: ETCC) ("ETC" or the "Company") Simulation Division ("ETC
Simulation"), located in Orlando, Fla., has announced the signing of a
contract with Concordia University Portland to expand their Advanced Disaster
Management Simulator ("ADMS") training suite to include additional
capabilities to support the training of utility companies in emergency
management.

The partnership between Concordia University and the Western Energy Institute,
in cooperation with Portland General Electric will be the first of its kind
designed to provide emergency management training and education specifically
for utility companies. With ADMS, multiple utilities agencies work
simultaneously to ensure that critical infrastructures remain online during a
time of crisis. Their training can include incident management, coordinating
communications, sharing of resources and testing standard operating
procedures in a time of crisis.

Concordia's Homeland Security Simulation Center, includes an on-scene Incident
Command room with a 180-degree immersion theater screen, four Field Unit
positions and an Emergency Operations Center ("EOC") room which makes up the
largest ADMS training suite in the United States. During an emergency
simulation, the command team will receive real-time logistics information,
on-scene visuals and 2D mapping along with any information related to the
event. The expansion to their ADMS training suite will include the addition
of utilities vehicles and personnel.

"The introduction of training capabilities for utility companies and their
emergency management panning is another milestone for ADMS." said Lori
Bozenbury, Director of Business Development at ETC Simulation. "We have over
20 years of experience in providing virtual reality training to the emergency
response community and are now integrating that with critical infrastructure
systems. Utility companies will have access to a variety of scenarios to
exercise incident command and test their operating procedures in order to
provide the proper response in a time of crisis."
