Cubic Corp. (NYSE: CUB) has received a more than $51 million U.S. Army order of tactical vehicle and integrated laser engagement systems for the service’s home-station training program.

The technology incorporates laser emitters affixed to military weapons and sensors to simulate combat and records data during combat training exercises, Cubic said Monday.

“Cubic is proud to provide I-MILES IWS and TVS training equipment and to support the U.S. Army’s relentless focus on training, ” said Dave Schmitz, president of Cubic defense applications.

The systems also feature Cubic’s wireless MILES technology for casualty assessment in training scenarios.

The Army placed the orders as part of the Defense Department‘s reprogramming package for defense equipment and services submitted to Congress.
