CMS to support New Zealand’s NEA programme
Cubic Mission Solutions has received a contract from the New Zealand Ministry of Defence to deliver C2 capabilities for the New Zealand Army's land forces and Special Operations forces.
The work is part of the Network Enabled Army (NEA) programme's Tactical Network (TNet) project - a transformational programme to be delivered in four tranches over 12 years. The TNet contract is a framework agreement allowing multiple awards over the life of the contract to address current, emerging and future requirements through support of the four tranches.
For the initial work scope, Cubic will provide scalable and deployable command post computing solutions based on its DTECH M3-SE and M3X product lines. The combination of these solutions allows scalable hyper-enabled operations at all levels of command. Future efforts will include delivery and support of additional hardware as well as technology insertion to provide improved performance while reducing weight and power requirements.
Capabilities delivered through the NEA programme will support C4ISR and EW responses within the land tactical and operating arenas, helping to ensure the NZDF can continue to participate in joint, interagency and multinational operations.
