Cubic Corp. said on Jan. 26 that it received a five-year deal to provide as much as $9.9 million worth of support to the Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio.
Under the deal, Cubic (NYSE: CUB) will support the lab’s work in CBRN counter-proliferation and survivability. CBRN stands for chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear.
Work on the indefinite-quantity contract will be parceled out to Cubic via task orders. The first task order is worth $2.69 million, according to a Pentagon announcement.
Cubic said it will work in the areas of cyber; electronic warfare; consequence management; alternative energy; and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance. Work will be done in San Diego; at Ohio’s Air Force Research Lab, or AFRL; at MacDill Air Force Base in Florida; and at Camp Smith in Hawaii.
Cubic was the only business submitting a proposal for the award.
“AFRL is recognized as one of the leaders in the area of counter-CBRN and survivability programs,” said Bill Toti, president of Cubic Mission Support Services. “As an R&D innovator, we are excited to expand the relationship we established with AFRL in 2006 and continue to conduct leading-edge projects that aid in developing innovative solutions, processes and procedures for our military forces worldwide.”
