Cubic Mission and Performance Solutions (CMPS) has secured a contract amendment with the Public Service and Procurement Canada (PSPC).

The two-year contract has been awarded on behalf of Canada’s Department of National Defence.

The amendment extends the contractor conducted logistics support (CLS) contract of CMPS until October 2023.

The company currently provides continuous logistics support to the Canadian weapon effects simulation (CWES) programme.

Cubic noted that the contract extension supports the CWES live training at the Canadian Forces’ four bases.

Included in the contract amendment is: logistics support for the multi-code instrumented harness kit (IHK), the tactical armoured patrol vehicle (TAPV), using Cubic’s latest Wireless Vehicle Kit (WVK), and the medium support vehicle system WVK, as well as the urban operations training system.

The company has recently delivered these new CWES capabilities to the Canadian Army.

Cubic Mission and Performance Solutions president Mike Knowles said: “We value our longstanding partnership with the Canadian Army, and we are pleased to continue our live simulation training support to the CWES programme.

“This contract extension expands on the work we have accomplished together to effectively advance the Canadian Army’s live training experience, improve operational readiness, and reduce training costs.”

Cubic received the original CWES contract in February 2003.

The CWES programme is aimed at addressing weaknesses in simulating realistic weapons effects during ‘force-on-force field’ training drills.

In September, Cubic Missions announced that it had signed a contract with the US Army to develop a Synthetic Training Environment (STE) Live Training System (LTS) prototype.
