Cubic Defense Systems will develop hands-on training devices, desktop trainers and simulators for each variant of the US Navy’s Littoral Combat Ship’s (LCS) Mission Bays under a new contract. The $112 million contract, announced on 3 December, was awarded by the Naval Air Systems Command, Training Systems Division (NAWCTSD).

The contract will see Cubic provide LCS training facilities in San Diego, California and Mayport, Florida, with training solutions for the preparation, launch, handling, recovery, and securing of the ship’s mission equipment.

Dave Schmitz, president, Cubic Defense Systems, said: ‘This announcement underscores Cubic’s continued partnership with the US Navy. We are honoured to be selected for another LCS programme.

‘Combined with three recent contract awards to develop and deliver game-based courseware for both variants of the LCS and their mission bay, our virtual trainers provide the navy with the key tools necessary to deliver the full scope of foundational training for the crew of the LCS ships.’

The US Navy’s LCS programme is developing a new generation of surface vessels for operation in shallow and near-shore environments.
