Cubic Defense Applications has been awarded a $49 million indefinite type contract from the U.S. Marine Corps Systems Command to provide a tactical engagement simulation system.
Cubic will provide a turn-key deployable training capability that will include an immersive training environment, which replicates the threats and stresses of actual combat.
It will be used in domestic and foreign force-on-force and force-on-target training exercises, including indoor and outdoor military operations in urban terrain.
This system includes small arms laser transmitters, rocket-propelled grenade and AT-4 anti-armor simulators and man-worn and wireless vehicle laser detection.
“This system will provide the U.S. Marine Corps an exceptional training environment using proven components, ” said Ray Barker, executive vice president of Cubic Defense Applications. “Our system will support small unit training, and is capable of integrating multiple units for combined arms training at higher echelons. It also allows Marines to fully integrate live, virtual and computer-based constructive elements into their training mix for a more complex and realistic training experience.”
