Dave Schmitz: Cubic Wins $35M Contract to Support UK Combat Simulation System

Cubic logoA Cubic Corp. business unit has won a three-year follow-on contract valued at an estimated $35 million to provide support and repair services for the Area Weapons Effects Simulator system.

Cubic Defense Systems will perform work at the Salisbury Plain Training Area in the U.K. and the British Army Training Unit Suffield in Alberta, Canada, the company said Tuesday.

According to Dave Schmitz, president of Cubic Defense Systems, the contract is a continuation of its existing support of the customer’s training services.

The original contract for the installation of AWES was awarded in 1998.

AWES simulates of force-on-force combat involving direct fire, mines, airborne munitions, chemical weapons, and others, uses GPS to monitor the actions and locations of soldiers and vehicles during training and assists post-mission analysis by recreating combat exercises.

Cubic said the system also uses its Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System technology to record small-arms fire ‘hits,’ ‘kills’ and ‘misses.’
