The Australian Navy has selected Cubic Defense as the primary contractor to develop distributed simulation-enabled training events.
The four-year contract, valued at approximately USD $7.11 million or AUD $9 million, provides a wide range of simulation planning, technical support and professional interactors to enhance the Navy's multisite synthetic training events at the Navy Synthetic Warfighting Centre (NSWC), the company announced Monday.
The NSWC was recently established at the HMAS Watson Naval Base on Sydney Harbour. The NSWC will facilitate synthetic training events and focus on delivering local and distributed mission training activities in both land-based simulators and ships in an agile manner.
Cubic's contract will increase the potential of live, virtual and constructive training integration across the Australian Navy. Cubic will design and deliver synthetic training events and networks involving a combination of dedicated simulators, which will be distributed to naval vessels.
In addition to its partnership with the Navy, Cubic is the incumbent Simulation Support Service contractor for the Australian Defence Simulation and Training Centre (ADSTC), which supports joint collective training. Cubic also provides training as well as simulation systems and services to the Australian Army and the Royal Australian Air Force.
