Cubic Wins $49M for Data Link of Joint STARS Surveillance System

Cubic Defense Applications (NYSE: CUB) has won a five-year $49 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity U.S. Army contract to provide repairs and engineering support for an airborne surveillance and control data link.

The data link relays data and communications for Joint STARS, a Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) built battle management, intelligence, command, control and surveillance system.

The system can simultaneously track and monitor ground vehicles, aircraft and ships and is carried on E-8C aircraft, which are modified Boeing (NYSE: BA) 707 passenger airliners.

“The characteristic of the SCDL we are most proud of is that it is proven to be jam-resistant, ” said Trey Cochran, Cubic’s program director for the system.
