The company said Wednesday its global defense segment will continue to provide training support services at the Army’s Joint Readiness Training Center in Fort Polk, Louisiana, under the contract that has one base year and four option years.

“Cubic has assisted the Army with training for its combat teams and soldiers since 2001,” said Dave Buss, president of Cubic Global Defense.

Buss, an inductee into Executive Mosaic‘s Wash100 for 2017, added the company will work to help further optimize the training experiences of U.S. and allied forces.

Cubic will help JRTC integrate U.S. and allied forces into rotational training exercises meant to prepare troops for deployments to overseas military operations.

The company will also provide expanded role play, battlefield effects, technical support for  the center’s combat training instrumentation and video and cultural role players.
