Delivering Innovative Results
April 30, 2013, Houston, TX - ECS is pleased to announce that we were selected as an exhibitor at this year's first annual Center for Offshore Safety (COS) Forum held in Houston, TX. The forum was a two-day event on April 29th and 30th, 2013. Representing the company were Waymon Armstrong and Hayley Corbett, who gave the forum attendees a sneak peek at the Crisis Repsonse Simulation (CRS) developed by ECS. CRS is a web-based simulation that allows corporate leadership and key personnel in an organization to exercise their critical thinking and decision making skills during intense, multi-role, event-driven simulations of crises and disasters.

The goal is to test whether a virtual world is a more efficient delivery method than the current practice of using the classified SIPRnet and the unclassified NIPRnet and Internet Public Portal, according to JKO deputy program manager Marty Vozzo. The virtual world would be cloud-based and accessible over the Web.
The Combating Traffic in Persons course was chosen first because it is high-volume: all Department of Defense military and civilian personnel must take the training, which takes about an hour to complete. There were 36,000 course completions last year.
The virtual world test will be conducted in the spring, before final evaluation by the Office of the Secretary of...
During more than a decade of combat in Iraq and Afghanistan, U.S. military chaplains often found themselves caught between heaven and hell: one moment leading a prayer service, the next dodging enemy fire to be at the side of a dying soldier.
December 4, 2012 - Orlando, FL - Engineering & Computer Simulations (ECS) announced it was recently selected to develop a Serious Game in support of the US Army Chaplain Center and School (USACHCS). This contract is being managed through the US Army Research Laboratory (ARL), Research Development and Engineering Command, Simulation Training & Technology Center (RDECOM-STTC).
Under this effort, ECS will determine the feasibility of using their previously developed Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TC3) Simulation (TC3Sim) to create a training environment where Chaplains, together with their Chaplain Assistants, can perform their Unit Ministry Team tasks under "battle-focused" conditions.
The trauma-oriented immersive environments found with TC3Sim facilitate learning through contextual experiences that replicate the crisis, the feelings, and the conditions that may be encountered on the battlefield. These include: death and dying, faith, guilt,...
December 3, 2012 - Orlando, FL - Engineering & Computer Simulations (ECS) announced today that it received a contract from the Joint Staff J7, Joint & Coalition Warfighting (JCW), Joint Knowledge Online (JKO) to develop a practical exercise vignette within the Virtual World Framework.
ECS, in partnership with Concurrent Technologies Corporation (CTC), is developing an online, companion module to an existing course, Combating Trafficking in Persons (CTIP), using the Office of the Secretary of Defense-sponsored Virtual World Framework (VWF). The VWF companion module will immerse trainees in an environment and allow them to practice recognizing and reacting to indictors of trafficking in persons.
The VWF is an emerging capability developed by the Office of the Secretary of Defense for Personnel & Readiness, Training Readiness & Strategy (OSD (P&R) TRS). Coupling numerous emerging technologies, the VWF allows users ease of access...

Engineering & Computer Simulations Inc. wants to sell training programs to the cruise industry on dealing with disasters like the January sinking of the Costa Concordia off the Italian coast that killed 32 passengers.
November 14, 2012. Orlando, FL - Engineering & Computer Simulations (ECS) announced today they have set sail in the commercial market after serving the Department of Defense for over 15 years. ECS leverages its experience as a Defense contractor to introduce its fleet of learning simulations, designed exclusively for the cruise line industry. ECS debuted their simulations at the Cruise Line International Association (CLIA) Leadership Forum, ongoing in Hollywood, Florida. ECS is an Executive Partner within CLIA and is participating as a panel member in the Leadership Forum. As part of the new launch, ECS has created two interactive simulations to enhance training and safety to cruise line executives, their crews and guests.
