Explotrain at I/ITSEC 2016

“The Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) is the world’s largest modeling, simulation, and training conference. It is always held near the beginning of December in Orlando, Florida, USA, and it consists of peer-reviewed paper presentations, tutorials, special events, professional workshops, a commercial exhibit hall, a serious games competition, and STEM events for teachers and secondary students. I/ITSEC is organized by the National Training and Simulation Association (NTSA), which promotes international and interdisciplinary cooperation within the fields of modeling and simulation (M&S), training, education, analysis, and related disciplines at this annual meeting. The NTSA is an affiliate subsidiary of the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA). Hence, I/ITSEC also emphasizes themes related to defense and security.”

MCASE Active Shooter Exercise Okaloosa County

AS360 staff participated in various capacities at the Mass Casualty Active Shooter Exercise (MCASE) event in Okaloosa County. The exercise included 19 agencies over three days including regional medical centers. Explosive Blast Simulators provided by Explotrain LLC were utilized to simulate realistic secondary device detonations. AS360 CEO Kenneth Worley served as the “shooter.” AS360 COO Ryan Christen acted as the Exercise Director and Chief of Planning. Additional AS360 members served as tactical responders, medics, and HSEEP evaluators.

“We also want to offer special thanks to Explotrain LLC! Todays active shooter training exercise was a great event that helped prepare our community’s responders. A big part of that success is due to the battlefield effects supplied by Explotrain. The added realism put extra stress on the responders and added tremendous value to our evolutions! Critical lessons were learned today that could not have been achieved without Explotrain.”
