ECS unveils its Crisis Response Simulation at the Offshore Technology Conference.

We are confident this training system will save money, time and help save lives in situations where there are no second chances.

May 6, 2013. Houston, TX. Engineering & Computer Simulations (ECS) announced today they are unveiling their Crisis Response Simulation (CRS) for the first time at the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) on the showroom floor. Over 80,000 attendees and more than 2,500 exhibitors are expected to attend OTC, and ECS will be the only modeling and simulation company exhibiting.

"We are looking forward to showing the Crisis Response Simulation to offshore technology leadership during OTC," stated Waymon Armstrong, President, ECS. "ECS, an award winning company, brings 16 strong years of military simulation experience and has the potential to transform crisis response training. Our CRS is the first in our competency-based products and services line that supports the oil and gas industry."

The Crisis Response Simulation, or CRS, is a web-based, critical-thinking tool that immerses corporate senior executives in intense, realistic scenarios. These scenarios cover decisions that impact the preservation of life, the support of affected family members, rig stability, communication and social media, mitigation of legal risks and other obligations that appear in a crisis response situation. Whether it is a well blowout, fire, or an environmental release, CRS is customizable to a broad set of scenarios that represent the current offshore or onshore upstream, mid-stream, and downstream oil and gas industry.

"ECS is pleased to leverage the 9+ million dollars of US military and ECS-funded Internal Research and Development investments that have resulted in the Crisis Response Simulation. The robust simulation system builds critical thinking skills for senior level decision makers," explains Armstrong. "The immersive training exercises can be configured rapidly and provides intense, realistic scenario rehearsal and real-time feedback, resulting in effective training for senior level decision makers. We are confident this training system will save money, time and help save lives in situations where there are no second chances."

Envisioning the re-use of technology developed for, and in use by the US military, Mr. Armstrong now leads the ECS Commercial Division, focused entirely on non-Government/non Department of Defense initiatives. The Offshore Technology Conference runs May 6–9 at Reliant Park, Houston, Texas. ECS is will be in booth number 11225 on the showroom floor.
