Kearny Mesa defense contractor Cubic Corp. said on Dec. 9 that it received a $12 million contract amendment to provide urban warfare training aids for the government of Canada.
The business is providing the Canadian military an urban operations training system. According to Cubic (NYSE: CUB), the new system will complement a weapon effects simulation, force-on-force engagement training system that Cubic provided in 2006.
Work is expected to continue through December 2015. Cubic is the prime contractor on the system and said that it expects more task orders.
The system is similar to other Cubic training products in that it collects information from players during war games, and stores that information so soldiers and their instructors can review the training scenario afterward.
