Airport Rescue Fire Fighting Simulators
Introducing the most realistic, flexible and effective way to train.
CYBERDRIVE Airport Rescue Fire Fighting (ARFF) Simulators are the perfect solution for organisations looking to increase training efficiency and lower operational and maintenance costs. Rising fuel costs, emissions and safety concerns, wear-and-tear, training limitations and high instructor costs associated with conventional training methods make simulator training an efficient and cost-effective alternative.
CYBERDRIVE ARFF Simulators are intended for use by driving and training schools, fleet operators, educational establishments, and government and private organisations. It may be used for screening prospective fire fighters, beginner training, refresher training, evaluation and overall fire fighter preparation.
ThoroughTec has the expertise and experience to simulate any of the world’s leading fire-fighting vehicle manufacturers such as Rosenbauer, Marcé, Oshkosh, E-One and Kronenburg.
“Our ARFF simulators reduce running costs and ensure our fire fighters are ready to face any emergency.”
BENEFITS OF SIMULATION TRAINING
Accurate Vehicle Replication
CYBERDRIVE ARFF simulators accurately replicates the actual fire fighting vehicle. All simulated vehicles are exhaustively researched so that their various systems, sub-systems, characteristics and performance capabilities are modelled to extremely high fidelity so that the cadet is presented with an experience that is as close to reality as possible. This accuracy ensures a direct transfer of skills and technique learnt in the fire fighting simulator to the actual vehicle.
ACTIVE STEERING FEEDBACK
An Active Force Steering Feedback system enhances the driving experience by delivering tactile feedback to the fire fighter. Feel the torque of the vehicle, the tyres on varying terrain, the slip of the tyres and sense the under- or oversteer at every turn for precision response.
MOTION PLATFORM SYSTEMS
CYBERDRIVE ARFF simulators come standard with an electro-mechanical six-degree of freedom (6DOF) motion platform, providing ultra-realistic motion, at a level usually only seen in flight simulation. These systems deliver the most realistic driving experience possible, providing the learner driver with the full-body motion cues, typically associated with acceleration, braking, cornering and varying road conditions.
Customised Virtual Airports and Scenarios
Simulated airports are customised 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.
Training and Evaluation 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.
