ETC: ETC Simulation contracted by Netherlands Ministry of Defense to deliver ADMS Training Systems for Royal Netherlands Air Force

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Southampton, Pa., USA, January 24, 2017
- Environmental Tectonics Corporation's ("ETC" or the "Company") Simulation
business unit, located in Orlando, FL, has been awarded a contract from the
Netherlands Defense Materiel Organization for the delivery and support of
multiple Advanced Disaster Management Simulators (ADMS(TM)). The simulators
will be used to educate, assess, and train fire and rescue services personnel
from the Royal Netherlands Air Force.

The portable ADMS-Airbase virtual reality training systems will be delivered
to the Fire Academy of the Royal Netherlands Air Force (RNLAF) at Woensdrecht
Air Force Base, and from there deployed by mobile training teams to provide
on-site training to all other bases and facilities in the Netherlands.

The training system includes RNLAF vehicles with crews, a variety of aircraft
and helicopter incidents such as a F-35 (Joint Strike Fighter), F-16, Pilatus
PC-7, KDC-10 Tanker, Hercules C-130, Apache AH-64D, Chinook CH-47F, and
NH-90; including emergencies during take-off and landing. Other scenarios
include road traffic accidents, hazmat situations, wildland, and structural
fires. The included military airbase comes with hangars, aircraft shelters,
support facilities, ammunition storage, residential areas, and runways. The
system features ETC's Signature Simulation Technology including the Scenario
Generator with SmartModel(TM) library, for rapid scenario creation.

"We have been using ADMS successfully for several years now and are very happy
that a new contract is awarded to ETC. ADMS simulation fits very well in our
vision to provide blended learning to our fire and rescue personnel." said
Captain Van Laar, Chief of the RNLAF Fire Academy, "With the virtual reality
simulator we are able to offer incident scenarios that cannot be practiced
live due to safety, facility, and environmental limitations, and it saves us
time and money because we do not need to call in extra vehicles with crews.
We will also go to our bases for on-site training."
