Cubic Global Defense has won $44 million additional contract for its Instrumentable-Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System Individual Weapon Systems (I-MILES IWS).
The contract was awarded by the US Army’s Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI), the company said in a statement Monday.
I-MILES IWS(4) is critical to the quality of home-station training as it offers heightened realism during exercise scenarios. I-MILES IWS uses laser transmitters attached to military weapons and body sensors to detect hits and perform real-time casualty assessments to replicate combat and record data for later review.
The system features small, lightweight components for individual soldiers and requires less time to attach the Small Arms Transmitters and align to the weapon than previous versions. It also maintains alignment during an entire exercise.
