Airport Rescue and Fire-Fighting Simulators
Introducing the most realistic, flexible and effective way to train.
CYBERDRIVE ARFF Simulators are the perfect solution for organisations looking to dramatically increase ARFF operational readiness while reducing associated costs.
Traditional training methods suffer from rising fuel prices, emission and safety concerns, wear-and-tear of increasingly complex and expensive vehicles and the practical limitations of live fire training. Simulator-based ARFF training overcomes all of these constraints to offer the most efficient and cost-effective method of developing operator proficiency and maintaining crew readiness.
CYBERDRIVE ARFF Simulators are intended for use by airport fire departments and training establishments. They may be used for screening prospective firefighters, novice skills development or refresher training and skills maintenance.
ThoroughTec has the expertise and experience to accurately simulate any OEM vehicles and any airport or training area.
“Our ARFF Simulator has saved us significant time and money and provided a safe training environment, whilst not compromising flight operations.”
BENEFITS OF SIMULATOR TRAINING
The CYBERDRIVE ARFF simulation system is housed in an IP55-rated, 6m ISO high-cube container, which is insulated, air-conditioned and protected against water and dust ingress. The interior is ergonomically designed and well appointed to provide a comfortable and controlled learning environment. Importantly, the ISO structural integrity of the container is maintained during manufacture ensuring that your simulator is easily transported by rail, sea or road.
The Fixed Facility CYBERDRIVE ARFF simulator system has the same internal features as the Containerised Option, but is designed for indoor classroom environments at air-ports, organisations or training schools, where multiple groups of firefighters can be trained in a comfortable and controlled learning environment.
Advanced Instructor Station
CYBERDRIVE ARFF simulators offer a feature rich Instructor Operator Station which provides the Instructor with the ability to:
- Customise fire-fighting scenarios by defining the following parameters:
- Accident location
- Starting position and state of simulated ARFF
- Type of aircraft / structure
- Location and type of fire
- Time of Day
- Wind speed and direction
- Number, type and behaviour of AI responders
- Planned equipment faults
- Planned emergency conditions
- Monitor the state of all operator instruments and controls as well as all simulated vehicle systems, in real time.
- View an event log of ARFF operators’ operating procedure violations as they occur.
- Review fully dynamic 3D replays of past exercises for After-Action Review and de-briefing purposes.
- View, print and export current and historical ARFF operator reports.
Accurate Vehicle Replication
CYBERDRIVE ARFF simulators accurately simulate your actual vehicle. All vehicles are exhaustively researched so that the simulated characteristics, sub-systems and performance capabilities realistically match those of their real-world equivalents. This is essential to achieving a direct transfer of skills learned in the simulator to the actual vehicle and is the cornerstone of our high-fidelity simulation architecture.
Customised Virtual Airports and Scenarios
Virtual airports in the CYBERDRIVE ARFF Simulator are painstakingly constructed to fully replicate your flight operations, aircraft ground movements and ancillary traffic so that simulator training scenarios are as realistic as possible.
A wide range of aircraft, incident and fire types are available, which when placed in this rich, immersive virtual world, complete with variable wind and weather conditions, will challenge even the most experienced firefighters. Instructors can train vehicle crews independently or, if multiple simulators are available, as a full watch in networked, multiplayer exercises.
Advanced Training Tools
CYBERDRIVE ARFF simulators feature an integrated suite of powerful and intuitive training tools, allowing instructors to create highly customised exercises. Operator behavior is monitored in real time, and automatically recorded and analysed for post-mission performance reporting. Additionally, real-time coaching is facilitated through an in-session situational visualisation and messaging system, whilst debriefing takes place around the dynamic 3D After-Action Review (AAR) system.
