Cubic to Extend Support for USAF Air Combat Training System

Cubic's (NYSE: CUB) mission and performance solutions business has received a contract to help maintain nearly 1K P5 Combat Training Systems and associated infrastructure at more than 20 U.S. Air Force installations and range facilities.

The company said Friday it will also provide P5CTS support to system users in the U.K., Egypt, Morocco, Oman, Poland, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore and Australia.

U.S. and international partners use the platform to train warfighters in weapons engagement for air-to-air and air-to-ground missions via a simulated environment, according to Cubic.

Jonas Furukrona, vice president and general manager of air training solutions at the Cubic MPS segment, said the company expects the P5CTS training network to grow with the delivery of over 250 airborne subsystems in 2021.

“This is concurrent to the activation of the F-35 P5 Internal Subsystem being connected to training ranges worldwide," Furukrona added.

The Cubic-Leonardo DRS team has helped customers deploy more than 2K P5CTS airborne subsystems worldwide to date.

Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) has received more than 600 F-35 P5 components, with the majority of the subsystems used on F-35 jets.
