Cubic to continue Lithuanian force modernisation

27th February 2012 - 16:16 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Cubic has announced that it has been awarded a new five-year contract to continue its support of force modernisation in Lithuania. The company made the announcement in a 27 February 2012 company statement.

Cubic has been involved with force modernisation in Lithuania since 2001, initially assisting its defence staff in the development of a national security strategy analysis.

The contract, for about $600,000 a year, extends through April 2016. Under the agreement, Cubic will assist with the design and an equipping plan for an integrated Combat Training Centre (CTC) and help stand up the centre after its completion. This US funded Foreign Military Sales (FMS) effort is a continuation of Cubic's constructive simulation and force modernisation programs in Lithuania, with a primary task being the development of a modern Combat Training Centre.

In December 2002, Cubic was awarded a $5 million contract sponsored by the US Army Security Assistance Command to provide professional analysis, technical and staff assistance necessary to support the government of Lithuania in national goals and its efforts to become part of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. This task was successful and Lithuania was invited to join the Alliance at the 2002 NATO Summit, and has been a contributing member since then. Cubic personnel also have assisted with the implementation and operation of a highly realistic constructive simulation training system -- the Joint Conflict and Tactical Simulation (JCATS) program -- interactive simulation software used by US and NATO forces for training, analysis, mission planning and rehearsal.
