The U.S. Marine Corps awarded Cubic Corp. a six-month, $11.6 million contract for readiness training support. The deal continues previous work that San Diego-based Cubic (NYSE: CUB) provides out of its Orlando, Florida, office.
Some 55 percent of the work will be done in Quantico, Virginia, with the balance at other locations. Ten percent will be done locally at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton.
Under the deal, Cubic will provide training in Marine warfighting skills; command post exercises; battle staff training; mission rehearsal exercises; command, control, communication and computers (also known as C4) mobile training; in addition to combat simulation ranging from individual to joint and combined staffs training.
“As the leader in providing performance-based training solutions focused on the mission readiness of our armed forces, we are excited to be partnered with the Marines once again to assist in improving their warfighting skills,” Dave Buss, president of the Cubic Global Defense unit, said in a prepared statement.
The contract was not competitively procured. The U.S. Marine Corps Systems Command in Quantico made the award, announced Oct. 27.
