When ThoroughTec first started out over 25 years ago, the founders had two overarching goals - "to always build great products" and "to only employ thoroughbreds." To this day, these goals are enshrined in the corporate philosophy and have no doubt contributed to exponential year-on-year growth. But what is the true essence of ThoroughTec? Certified to ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015, the company prides itself on being one of the world's leading suppliers of land-based heavy equipment simulations, including ARFF (Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting) solutions. The CYBERDRIVE ARFF simulator set to be unveiled at INTERSCHUTZ - now postponed till next year due to the COVID-19 pandemic - is designed to significantly boost the operational readiness of ARFF teams while also reducing the associated costs.

Rising fuel prices, concerns relating to emissions and safety, wear and tear on increasingly complex and expensive vehicles, and the practical limitations of live fire training that is as realistic as possible are among the general drawbacks of traditional emergency drills. Simulator-based ARFF training is intended to help overcome these constraints, providing an efficient, cost-effective method of developing operator proficiency and ensuring crew readiness. The ThoroughTec CYBERDRIVE ARFF simulator is perfect for training establishments and also for on-site use by airport fire departments. Potential applications include testing potential new recruits, carrying out refresher training, developing new skills and maintaining these capabilities.
