Cubic Corporation today announced that it has won a $65 million contract for two Combat Training Centers (CTCs) from a Middle East Army customer.
The contract includes US Army versions of I-MILES Tactical Vehicle System (I-MILES TVS), Instrumented-Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System Individual Weapon Systems (I-MILES IWS) and the TVS adapter kit to enable simulation of combat vehicles.
The solutions will enhance the training capability by providing state-of-the art Tactical Engagement Simulation (TES) systems, an advanced data collection system for video, voice and other training data that is not currently available in the region.
Cubic's CTC solutions enable commanders and soldiers to rehearse combat skills and tactics, and learn safely in a live battlefield setting. These devices are used during live force-on-force training, and provide the critical real-time digital, audio and video data feedback for forces to achieve and sustain mission readiness. Cubic's MILES solutions enable small and large group training from a custom squadron to a battalion. The systems are also compatible with legacy equipment, ensuring previous investments are preserved and long term cost of ownership is lowered.
I-MILES IWS uses laser emitters that attach to military weapons and on-body sensors to replicate combat and records data for later review. I-MILES TVS, the vehicular adaptation of Cubic's man-worn Individual Weapons System, equip tactical vehicles with lasers, sensors and electronics.
The I-MILES TVS solution will also include Cubic's "Shooter" CVS kit, to enable superior weapon simulation and casualty assessment accuracy for vehicles and fixed structure.
Under the new contract, Cubic will manage and support the logistics of the centers for three years following installation and acceptance of the centers by the customer. Cubic will also provide on-site staff to help develop and manage exercises, facilitate after action reviews and provide immediate assistance for hardware and software management.
