US Army places new I-MILES TVS order
Cubic Defense Applications has announced that it has received a new order from the US Army’s Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI) for its Instrumentable MILES Tactical Vehicle Systems (I-MILES TVS). The $12.5 million order was announced on 18 December.
I-MILES TVS uses Cubic’s wireless vehicle Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System (MILES) technology to provide the real-time casualty assessment necessary for MILES tactical engagement training in direct-fire, force-on-force instrumented training scenarios.
According to Cubic, the system offers advanced performance because of its weapon simulation and casualty assessment accuracy for vehicles and fixed structures. It is adaptable to any wheeled or tracked tactical vehicle and is also configurable for buildings, fixed equipment and other structures. The system also includes new features that significantly improve ease of use for soldiers, including touch-screen displays with highly intuitive graphic interfaces.
The company recently completed shipment of more than 1,000 I-MILES TVS kits to the US Army. The first six tactical vehicle systems went to Fort Carson, Colorado, where they will be used to train end users.
Cubic is to deliver over 3,000 systems under the first option of its 2010 contract with the US Army’s PEO STRI. Cubic will conclude deliveries under the first option in May 2013, then commence work on a second option, which includes the $12.5 million order.
