I/ITSEC: Cubic receives US Army training system orders

26th November 2014 - 12:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Cubic will supply vehicle and weapon training systems to the US Army under two contracts with the US Army’s Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI) announced on 24 November.

The orders, with a combined value of more than $51 million, will see the company provide its Tactical Vehicle System (TVS) and Instrumentable Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System Individual Weapon Systems (I-MILES IWS).

I-MILES IWS uses laser emitters that attach to military weapons and on-body sensors to replicate combat and records data for later review.

I-MILES TVS is a vehicular adaptation of Cubic’s man-worn Individual Weapons System (IWS). It equips army wheel vehicles and other tactical vehicles with lasers, sensors and electronics used during force-on-force combat training exercises. It employs Cubic’s wireless MILES technology to provide real-time casualty assessment necessary for MILES tactical engagement training in direct-fire instrumented training scenarios, delivering advanced performance because of its weapon simulation and casualty assessment accuracy for vehicles and fixed structures.

Dave Schmitz, president, Cubic Defense Applications, said: ‘Cubic is proud to provide I-MILES IWS and TVS training equipment and to support the US Army’s relentless focus on training. We believe our systems play a critical role for the development and sustainment of our warfighters.

‘It is our goal to provide the most effective and affordable training solutions, and to do so by driving innovation into the areas most critical to our customers.’
