Cubic to continue JRTC support

9th August 2016 - 16:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Cubic Global Defense (CGD) has been awarded a contract modification worth over $52 million from the US Army to support training exercises at the Joint Readiness Training Center (JRTC) in Fort Polk, Louisiana, the company announced on 8 August.

The cost-plus-award-fee incrementally funded contract is the ninth option year of Cubic's 2007-awarded Mission Support Contract for the JRTC. Work will run through to the end of June 2017.

Cubic’s support covers the integration of US and allied forces into rotational training exercises through scenarios focused on decisive action and theatre-specific operational environments. 

These types of exercises are conducted for units targeted for deployment in support of ongoing military operations and include situational training, live fire, force-on-force and integrated live, virtual and constructive training. The company will also provide expanded role play, technical support for combat training instrumentation, battlefield effects, video and cultural role players (including foreign language speakers) for added realism.

JRTC provides realistic, enhanced collective training experiences at the brigade combat team level. The centre trains light infantry, air assault, airborne and special operations units, including rangers; and hosts various rotational training exercises involving all other US military forces.
