Cubic to Provide Soldier-Friendly Training System for Tactical Vehicles

Category: Training And Simulators

San Diego, CA. -- Cubic Defense Applications, the defense systems unit of Cubic Corporation, will provide an easy-to-use laser-based combat training system for U.S. Army tactical vehicles under a new indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) contract from the Army`s Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI).

The contract includes four option years and has a potential value of more than $100 million. Deliveries of the new system will commence in July 2011.

Cubic's winning system includes user-friendly features designed to appeal to today's smart phone and tech-savvy soldiers. Called the Tactical Vehicle System (TVS), the system includes an intuitive Cubic-developed application to greatly simplify installation and operation by using advanced wireless devices instead of traditional cables with embedded laser detectors.

Michael Martin, Cubic project engineer for TVS, said the Army's need for ease of use and efficiency drove Cubic's design of the new system.

"You've got to consider who the intended users are: It's your 20-something soldier," Martin said. "We designed this system to address both Army and soldier preferences by including intuitive consumer features like touch screens, graphics and Wi-Fi communications."
