Cubic Corp. to Provide Marines with Combat Simulators; Dave Schmitz Comments

cubic corp logoCubic Corp.’s (NYSE: CUB) defense applications business has won a contract to provide the U.S. Marine Corps with a laser-based simulation system intended to help train marine forces.

Cubic Defense Applications will deliver the instrumented-tactical engagement simulation system II that imitates actual combat situations and is slated to replace legacy systems at the Marine Corps base in Quantico, Va., Cubic said Friday.

“Our system expands on existing training technology by offering a new battlefield effects simulation interface module to replicate the effects of improvised explosive devices, ” said Dave Schmitz, president of Cubic Defense Applications.

The I-TESS II system has wireless detection capabilities designed to provide marines with information about the damage to their vehicles and structures, according to Schmitz.

The system also consists of an arms transmitter, detection system, audio and visual technologies and monitoring and engagement system for vehicles and structures.

Cubic installed global positioning and radio systems into I-TESS II to enable marines to track objects and assess potential targets.

After the simulation is complete, marines are briefed on the data collected as an objective after-action review.
