Cubic has been awarded a contract to deliver additional instrumentable, multiple integrated laser-engagement tactical vehicle systems (I-MILES TVS) to the US Army.
Awarded by the Army Program Executive Office for simulation, training and instrumentation (PEO STRI), the $4.1m agreement is the third option exercised under the indefinite-delivery / indefinite-quantity (ID/IQ) contract awarded in September 2010.
The company has so far received nearly $65m under the original agreement, which includes a base-performance year and four option years.
Cubic Defense Systems president Dave Schmitz said: "We are pleased to supply the army with the latest evolutionary advancements in our wireless training solutions, including better training fidelity, improved wireless communications and intuitive interfaces."
A vehicular adaptation of Cubic’s man-worn individual weapons system (IWS 2), I-MILES TVS is designed to provide direct-fire, force-on-force and force-on-target collective training to troops at home stations and manoeuvre combat training centres (CTC).
The latest tactical-engagement simulation system is equipped with a wireless independent target system (WITS) to provide real-time casualty assessments for MILES tactical-engagement training in direct-fire instrumented training scenarios.

Designed to equip high-mobility multipurpose wheeled vehicles (HMMWV) and other tactical vehicles with lasers, sensors and electronics for force-on-force combat training exercises, the system has laser emitters and on-body sensors to replicate combat. It also records the scenario for after-action reviews.
As well as wheeled or tracked tactical vehicles, it can also be used for buildings, fixed equipment, and other structures, and includes new features such as touch-screen displays with intuitive graphic interfaces to significantly improve ease-of-use for soldiers.
The number of units ordered and their delivery schedule remain undisclosed.
