Cubic selected to develop training & simulation solutions for Naval Air Warfare Center

SAN DIEGO, Calif., 4 March 2013. Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division (NAWCTSD) officials needed an interactive training and simulation solution with which to train crew on littoral combat ship variants and their mission packages. They found their solution at Cubic Corp.’s (NYSE:CUB) Simulation Systems Division in Orlando.

Cubic won three prime contracts from NAWCTSD to develop instructor-led (synchronous) and instructor-facilitated, self-paced (asynchronous) courseware in support of the Littoral Combat Ship Train to Qualify (T2Q) and Train to Certify (T2C) shore-based training requirements for both variants of the littoral combat ship and for the Mission Packages utilized on both ships.

The Littoral Combat Ship program is said to include the U.S. Navy’s most advanced designs, capabilities, and technologies in the production of next-generation surface vessels able to operate in dangerous shallow and near-shore environments.

The three indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contracts, if fully funded, have a potential value of up to $298.5 million over the five-year period of performance. 
This program represents a strategic partnership between the United States military, government, and industry, and will result in the creation of jobs for veterans, engineers, and new graduates of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) programs, says a spokesperson.

Cubic’s Simulation Systems will partner with Cubic Mission Support Services and a team of subcontractors, including Austal USA, Alion Science and Technology, Sonalysts Inc., Aptima Inc., Cybernet Systems Corp., RealTime Immersive Inc., and a host of small businesses to deliver the interactive courseware products.
The Littoral Combat Ship courseware development programs will be executed in Orlando, Fla.
