Cubic has signed a contract to supply combat training centres (CTCs) to an undisclosed Middle East customer.

As part of the $65m contract, the company will supply two CTCs consisting of US Army versions of the instrumented, multiple integrated laser engagement system tactical vehicle system (I-MILES TVS), I-MILES individual weapon system (IWS) and the TVS adapter kit, to enable combat vehicle simulation.

The company will manage and support the logistics of the centres for three years, following installation and acceptance by the customer.

"It is our goal to provide the most effective and affordable training solutions."

In addition, Cubic will provide on-site staff to help develop and manage exercises, facilitate after-action reviews and offer immediate assistance for hardware and software management.

Cubic Global Defense president Bill Toti said: "Cubic is proud to provide advanced CTCs, training equipment and support, to enable our allies' relentless focus on readiness and training.

"It is our goal to provide the most effective and affordable training solutions, by driving innovation into the areas most critical to our customers

The centres are expected to enhance the customer's training capability with advanced tactical engagement simulation systems and advanced data collection for video, voice and other training data that is currently unavailable in the region.

Cubic's CTC devices are primarily used during live force-on-force training and to provide critical real-time digital, audio and video data feedback for forces to achieve and sustain mission readiness.

A vehicular adaptation of Cubic's man-worn individual weapons system, 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 CTCs.

The I-MILES IWS uses laser emitters that attach to military weapons and on-body sensors to replicate combat scenarios and record data for after-action reviews.

Cubic's 'Shooter' CVS kit is designed to enable enhanced weapon simulation and casualty assessment accuracy for vehicles and fixed structures.
