Cubic on Roll, Wins New Trainer Contract
The U.S. Army Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation awarded a five-year realistic combat training contract to Cubic Corporation to produce and field Initial-Homestation Instrumentation Training Systems (I-HITS) for U.S. Army, Army Reserve and National Guard sites. The initial award is $4.5 million with a ceiling value of $71.7 million if all options are exercised. The combat training systems provide exercise control, battle tracking, data collection and streamlined After-Action Reviews (AARS). Packaged in transit cases for rapid deployment, I-HITS also comes with player instrumentation, GPS player units and portable communications systems.
The defense segment of Cubic has enjoyed a spate of recent success in training systems contracts. The I-HITS announcement follows last week’s decision by the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) to award Cubic an opportunity to bid for up to $800 million in contracts under the five year Fielded Training Systems Support II (FTSS II) program, and in March, Cubic’s participation in a successful bid led by ManTech International Corporation for a contract with the U.S. Navy’s Space and Warfare Command (SPAWAR). The indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract for C4ISR training has a potential value of $76 million.
