ADMS offers an interactive realistic 3D environment for Command training on all levels. From small scale incidents with a single agency to large scale incidents that involve multi-agency communication.
There are currently three variations of our command product range. We have split this category into multiple disciplines, what differs are the viewing angles, room layouts, and training flows. ADMS remains at the core of it all and this allows everything to come together when you need to train multi-level and multi-agency scenarios, locally and remotely.
Each system can be modified to fit your training needs.
Trainees take the role of Incident Commander and command virtual resources.
Trainees take place in a Command Post room, receive audio and visual information about the incident and execute commands.
Trainees take the role as field unit, report back to the Incident Commander and execute commands.
Trainees experience the consequences of their decisions as they would in real-life situations. Interactive decision making is demanded from the trainees, which ultimately affects the development, resolution, or escalation of the event. ADMS is open-ended, with no pre-determined endings, just like the real-life situations you will face.
The resources can be deployed by the facilitator from the Exercise Control Station (central operation) based on the commands received from the trainees. It is also possible for the trainees to deploy their resources at their Field Unit Station (local operation).
Trainees take place in front of a visual display as the Incident Commander in a virtual ADMS environment, where they will command virtual resources by voicing commands and walk or drive around by joystick to explore the scene.
In turn, either staff (facilitator) or another trainee as a Field Unit will input the commands from the Incident Commander. The resources will perform the commands in real-time and provide the trainees with live visual feedback of their commands. This type of training leads to a higher immersion level for trainees, and ultimately a better and more effective training experience.
Use the Command Post layout for training Mobile Command Post Operations, Emergency Operations Centers, and National Disaster Management. The Command Posts can receive live images, video, and information streams from the ADMS Exercise controlled by Incident Command units and Field Units on the scene or by facilitators.
The ADMS Command Posts allows for multi-level training for large scenarios such as natural disasters, terrorist attacks, and crowd control. Thanks to the stability of ADMS, you can run large scale exercises for hours to simulate large realistic events from beginning to end.
ADMS can be shown on multiple displays in the room with different live angles from CCTV’s, Helicopters, and more.
At the Field Unit Stations, trainees will participate in the scenarios with their 3D view and 2D map. They can explore the scene using the joystick and report back their findings via radio communications.
For example, trainees as Vehicle Commanders would report to the Battalion Chief (IC). When the exercise flow is set into local mode, the trainees can operate their resources at the Field Unit Stations.
Trainees can learn to operate the ADMS User Interface within hours and run training exercises as Field Unit Stations. At any point, the facilitators at the Exercise Control Station can provide support if needed.
Provide Command Training remotely by using our ADMS studio setup. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, it is challenging to get trainees to your training center or travel to your trainees. Remote training will save you travel time and costs.
Our remote setup allows you to continue training without the need to meet in person. Stream your ADMS exercises to any number of trainees with any video conferencing app such as Skype, Microsoft Teams, and Zoom.
Run your exercises like usual; the only exception is that control of the system remains local with the instructor. Trainees participate remotely by giving voice commands to the instructor to operate resources and move around in the scene. The advantage is that the trainee can focus entirely on the incident scenario without being distracted by the joystick. This way, the instructors can also follow the trainees’ thought process.
