Cubic Subsidiary to Help Train Army Reserves Soldiers on Marksmanship; Dave Schmitz Comments

cubic corp logoA Cubic Corp. (NYSE: CUB) subsidiary has won a $10 million contract to help the U.S. Army Reserves train warfighters on how to find targets at a distance.

Cubic Defense Systems will provide its Engagement Skills Trainer virtual training tool and simulated weapons to Reserves soldiers using feedback efficiency indicators and three-dimensional targets, Cubic said Thursday.

Dave Schmitz, president of Cubic Defense Systems, said the company intends for EST 3000 to help the Army Reserves build up weapons qualifications by orienting troops at their home station before deploying them to a weapons range.

“In collaboration with our customer, we retained the features most important to them, such as ballistic accuracy and weapon use, ” added Schmitz.

The portable system is intended to build on the technologies from the EST 2000 Army-certified system and use game engine graphics to simulate scenarios.
