Cubic Global Defense has supported the annual US-Republic of Korea Ulchi Freedom Guardian (UFG) joint exercise through its Korea Battle Simulation Center (KBSC), the company announced on 12 October.

The UFG simulation-driven exercise combines military forces from the US and South Korea to train the combined forces command, direct staff and other personnel on the planning and execution needed to defend South Korea in case of any attack from the north. 

The simulations used in the UFG exercise replicate real-world training scenarios with air, ground, missile, sea and special operations fighting on both sides of the battlefield from multiple locations and over 1,000 workstations. The KBSC sustained the training effort of the successful exercise with around 20 complex simulations, providing overall simulation model availability of over 99% operability and local area network availability of 100% operability. 

Bill Toti, president, Cubic Global Defense, said: ‘UFG is a unique simulation model because both the US and RoK are seamlessly woven into one federation to provide realism to the training audience, including the leaders.

'With the addition of the Marine Air-Ground Task Force Tactical Warfare Simulation to the KBSC’s architecture this year, the US Marine Corps used their model for the first time in a theatre-level exercise to simulate amphibious and ground functions.’
