Cubic Details News

Cubic Global Defense (CGD)  was awarded a five-year, $73 million FFP task order to support aviation training for the UUSMC, under the US Navy’s (USN)Fielded Training Systems Support (FTSS) III IDIQ contract. Under this, Cubic will provide operations and maintenance support of military aviation training devices and simulators at various USMC Air Stations .

The US Army PEO STRI and Army Contracting Command-Orlando (ACC-ORL) furthermore awarded CGD an award of more than $10 million for new orders of its Instrumentable-Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System Individual Weapon Systems 2 (I-MILES IWS 2). “Cubic’s I-MILES IWS 2 continues to provide invaluable training by combining realistic environments and equipment to ensure combat readiness for every mission scenario,” Dave Buss, president of CGD, explained. “The live, force-on-force training capability of the I-MILES IWS 2, used not only by the U.S. but also allied and partner nations, is the cornerstone of training and building ready ground forces.”

CGD further announced it is one of nine companies awarded a Fielded Training Systems Support (FTSS) IDIQ Multiple Award Contract (MAC) by the USN to provide training support services to the USN, USMC, and its Foreign Military Sales customers. In addition, Cubic will have the opportunity to competitively bid on numerous full and open task orders, under the fourth-generation FTSS IDIQ contract, which has an estimated ceiling value of $1.75 billion. Cubic has participated in the FTSS IDIQ contracts since the original was awarded in 2000.

Training services under the FTSS award include contractor operations and maintenance services (of simulators and training devices); contract instructional services (simulator and academic instruction for pilots and other aircrew); training device relocation; training device modifications; training systems management; technical data verification; in-service engineering office support; spares/product support; and other related trainer support services.
