Cubic Global Defense today announced the delivery of its Instrumented-Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System Individual Weapon Systems (I-MILES IWS) and Combat Vehicle Adapter Kits to the Ukrainian Army worth $1.7 million.
The equipment is interoperable with their existing Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement Simulation (MILES) and Joint Multinational Readiness Center (JMRC) training systems allowing the Ukrainian Army to train at the brigade level.
The delivery includes the US Army’s versions of I-MILES IWS and Combat Vehicle Adapter Kits, which integrate with their current Tactical Vehicle System (I-MILES TVS) to enable simulation of combat vehicles and crew-served weapon simulators.
The US Army’s Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI) awarded the contract to Cubic for the delivery, training and sustainment of the I-MILES equipment in support of the Ukrainian Army.
Cubic currently provides on-site training and management for the Ukraine Land Forces to help develop and facilitate training exercises for previously delivered MILES system.
I-MILES accurately replicates the actual firing capabilities and effects of weapons during training, detects hits from laser “bullets,” and performs damage or casualty assessments on targets. Cubic's I-MILES TVS is the latest generation of I-MILES training systems for tracked and multi-wheeled vehicles.
The system includes advanced features such as touch screens, graphics and Wi-Fi communications to offer easy setup, installation and operation. Adapter kits that include wireless modules can be added for simulation of combat vehicles.
