Ukraine gets Cubic training systems

4th September 2015 - 13:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Ukrainian Army has received new training systems worth $1.7 million from Cubic Global Defense, the company announced on 2 September.

The training systems are interoperable with the army's existing Joint Multinational Readiness Center and Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement Simulation (MILES) training systems, enabling training at the brigade level.

The delivery includes US Army versions of Instrumented-Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System Individual Weapon Systems (I-MILES IWS) and combat vehicle adapter kits. These integrate with the current I-MILES Tactical Vehicle System for the simulation of crew-served weapons and combat vehicles.

Cubic was awarded the contract from the US Army to deliver, train and sustain I-MILES equipment for the Ukrainian Army. It currently provides on-site management and training for Ukrainian land forces to help develop and conduct training exercises for the MILES system.

Bill Toti, president, Cubic, said: 'Cubic provides ongoing support to our nation's allies and coalition partners in the most critical environments at the most critical time. Providing advanced training equipment and responding quickly to our customers' needs for effective and affordable training, especially in areas of conflict, is a great priority for Cubic.'
