Cubic Defense Applications, the defense systems business of Cubic Corporation, has received a new $12.5 million order for its Instrumentable MILES Tactical Vehicle Systems (I-MILES TVS) from the U.S. Armyís Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI).
I-MILES TVS employs Cubicís wireless vehicle Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System (MILES) technology to provide the real-time casualty assessment necessary for MILES tactical engagement training in direct-fire, force-on-force instrumented training scenarios. The system offers superior performance because of its weapon simulation and casualty assessment accuracy for vehicles and fixed structures. It adapts to any wheeled or tracked tactical vehicle and is also configurable for buildings, fixed equipment and other structures. The system includes new features that significantly improve ease of use for soldiers, including touch-screen displays with highly intuitive graphic interfaces.
In related news, Cubic just completed its first shipments of I-MILES TVS to the U.S. Army. Cubic delivered more than 1,000 kits to U.S. Army installations in November, with the U.S. Army Joint Readiness Training Center at Fort Polk, Louisiana, and the National Training Center at Fort Irwin, Calif., receiving most of Cubicís production.
The first six tactical vehicle systems went to Fort Carson, Colorado, where they will be used to train end users. Cubic is to deliver over 3,000 systems under the first option of its 2010 contract with the U.S. Armyís Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI). Cubic will conclude deliveries under the first option in May 2013, then commence work on a second option, which includes the $12.5 million order.
