Contracts and Procurement

SAN DIEGO, Calif.: Cubic Corporation has announced it was awarded a $12 million contract amendment from the Canadian Department of National Defence for the initial phase of the Urban Operations Training System (UOTS) capability. The UOTS complements the Weapon Effects Simulation (WES) force-on-force engagement training system deployed by Cubic in 2006 by adding an urban village training capability in several regions throughout Canada. Under this first phase, Cubic will complete the integration and validation tasks for the system instrumentation utilized in the UOTS environment.

 

Upon successful completion of the initial phase, additional task orders are planned for award to Cubic, the lead systems integrator for the training instrumentation, to be installed across all of the UOTS villages and buildings. Under these task orders Cubic will install hundreds of devices for high-fidelity tracking solutions to include: grenade and improvised explosive device (IED) simulators, video equipment, video servers, special effects generators (sights, sounds, and smells) and targets. Information collected from high-fidelity tracking devices is routed to a central location where it is aggregated into a real-time view of the training scenario and stored for after-action review, providing detailed assessment and feedback to evaluators and soldiers on the execution of their tactics, techniques and procedures.

“Cubic is committed to providing our customers with innovative solutions that deliver more dynamic and effective training experiences to not only improve operational readiness but also reduce training costs,” said Dave Schmitz, president of Cubic Defense Applications. “Our solutions prepare warfighters to engage in the complex and constantly changing urban environment and help develop warfighters’ intuitive decision making skills so they have the confidence to act appropriately and decisively.”

This phase of the contract awarded is expected to complete in December 2015.
