19th July 2016 - 16:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Cubic Global Defense will continue to support the US Air Force (USAF) Expeditionary Center’s Advisor Academic Services under a $6.2 million follow-on award announced on 18 July.

Cubic works with Language Directions, Marton Technologies and Fae Vectus to collectively provide classroom and scenario-based training on core skills applicable to all air advisors at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, New Jersey.

Advanced mobility and expeditionary combat support training takes place at the centre, preparing air advisors and other airmen to work with partner nations in multi-faceted peacetime and wartime operations.

Cubic’s work on the contract covers core knowledge and language, region and culture training. 

Dave Buss, president, Cubic Global Defense, said: ‘Recent turmoil in different regions of the world highlights the need for qualified, competent and well-trained war fighters with various competencies during expeditionary combat. Cubic will continue to strengthen our working relationship with the USAF Expeditionary Center as we provide responsive and effective training that prepares air advisors to operate in complex and uncertain combat environments.’

Cubic is the incumbent contractor currently providing air advisor academic instructors and role players to the USAF Expeditionary Center. This follow-on contract will begin in October 2016.
