The US Army has awarded a contract to Cubic Corporation to design and manufacture turret crew stations for a new virtual trainer for the Bradley fighting vehicle.

Under the $13m contract, the company will initially supply hardware for 15 mobile and nine fixed-site Bradley conduct of fire situational awareness systems to Oasis Advanced Engineering, prime contractor for the programme.

Bradley fighting vehicles are designed to carry troops and conduct scouting missions, feature specialised armour to protect the soldiers, and carry TOW anti-tank missiles, a 25mm cannon and a machine gun.

Cubic’s simulated crew stations incorporate high-fidelity physical components combined with a robust visual subsystem that provides FLIR, day TV and direct-optic views of the synthetic environment.

The training systems will also facilitate heavy brigade combat team gunnery manual training methods and scoring.

Deliveries are scheduled to begin in May 2011.
