An unidentified Middle East customer has contracted Cubic Corp., of San Diego, to provide comprehensive marksmanship and small arms training capabilities using the company’s Simulation System Division.
Under the contract—which Cubic says is for more than $120 million—the company will provide immersive training equipment for a variety of weapons at more than 20 sites. The capabilities include a wide range of tactical requirements including sniper, mortar and close air support.
“This contract underscores Cubic’s commitment to our security partners in the Middle East region," said Bradley Feldmann, Cubic Defense Applications Inc.’s president. The contract “provides a solid multiyear foundation for our virtual training business and reinforces Cubic’s role as the leading provider of immersive and marksmanship training equipment.”
As part of Cubic’s immersive training services, the company provides a full range of virtual training devices for national military and security forces worldwide. Those training devices are focused on the development and systems integration of simulation-based training systems for armor, missile, small arms and aircraft communities, the company says.
Cubic’s scenario-based small arms simulators provide the realistic training soldiers need to acquire and sustain essential skills, the firm says. That type of training is vital for small infantry units, which are playing a dominant role in the contemporary operational environment, it says. From individual basic marksmanship skills to collective training, Cubic provides a full range of deployable virtual and immersive trainers that help soldiers acquire, test and hone a wide range of tactical and decision making skills in virtual and immersive environments, it says.
