Cubic Global Defense announced today that it has won a $5.5 million Canadian Army contract to provide enhanced system capability that can adapt the C16 Automatic Grenade Launcher System (AGLS) for use in realistic, live training environments without interfering with the weapon's normal operation.
The contract is a part of the Weapon Effects Simulation (WES) program.
“The C16 AGLS adaptation is an essential tool to enable soldiers to truly train as they fight,” said Bill Toti, president of Cubic Global Defense. “This solution goes beyond traditional laser engagement by combining existing simulation techniques, information from the weapon system and state-of-the-art technology to produce high-quality instrumentation.”
“Because the C16 AGLS must be able to operate as both a direct and indirect fire weapon, a system was developed to maintain realism while operating in a force-on-force environment. The system adaptation includes the ability to engage with all WES instrumented targets. It seamlessly fits within the existing weapon specifications to maximize training fidelity,” the company stated.
