Cubic gets additional game-based courseware order
Cubic Global Defense has received four additional delivery orders worth $22 million, as part of an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract, to provide game-based training courseware for the US Navy’sLittoral Combat Ship (LCS) programme, the company announced on 11 October.
Cubic’s facility in Orlando, Florida will be responsible for the development of the Immersive Virtual Shipboard Environment (IVSE) for LCS programme.
The company’s IVSE is an advanced learning product for the LCS training programme that puts trainees in a photo-realistic, 3-D environment to teach various tasks in settings that are virtually alike to real-life scenarios.
The company plans to add virtual content and features to the current LCS training platform under the US Navy’s Ready Relevant Learning initiative.
Dave Buss, president of Cubic Global Defense, said: ‘We are pleased with receiving additional awards for the development of cutting-edge training and learning products for the US Navy.
‘In traditional development, engineers, 3-D artists, subject matter experts and learning scientists are separate disciplines; however, Cubic fully integrates learning science and technology to meet our customers’ needs with our unique team structure.’
