A Cubic (NASDAQ: CUB) subsidiary has been awarded a $60 million contract modification to continue helping the U.S. Army train soldiers before their deployment for combat operations.
This award increases the value of a potential 10-year mission support services contract Cubic Applications won in July 2007 to $896 million, Cubic said Thursday.
Cubic Applications has been supporting rotational pre-deployment exercises at the branch’s Joint Readiness Training Center at Fort Polk, Louisiana through the agreement.
The business helps prepare soldiers through role-playing combat scenarios in a multinational environment that involves live fire, force-on-force, situational and live-virtual-constructive training.
Approximately 1,500 Cubic Applications employees provide support work at JRTC.
