By SDBJ Staff Monday, April 28, 2014

Cubic Corp. received a contract worth more than $11 million to provide air combat training support to an undisclosed customer in the Middle East. Work will be conducted over 21 months at multiple sites, the company said.

The deal covers operation, maintenance, logistics support and management of air combat maneuvering systems, as well as the training necessary to satisfy the customer’s military operational requirements.

The customer has used the instrumentation training system developed by Cubic (NYSE: CUB) since 2003.

Cubic provides the training pods, debriefing systems, ground communication systems and test equipment. The builder says that as many as 60 aircraft can train at once on the system, which need not be used on a designated training range. The system includes GPS-based training pods that send and receive training data without the need for fixed infrastructure.

Pilots and commanders are able to review the training session after it is over
