Cubic to Develop Lithuania Combat Training Center

Cubic Corp.’s subsidiary Cubic Applications won a $3.2 million Army contract to continue simulation and force modernization programs in Lithuania.

Cubic said its defense modernization division will develop a modern combat training center under the five-year foreign military sales contract through April 2016.

Cubic will assist with the design and equipment plan for the center and help establish the center after completion.

Cubic has completed work to modernize Lithuanian forces since 2001.

Cubic won a $5 million contract in December 2002 to provide professional analysis, technical and staff assistance in support of Lithuania’s goal to join NATO.

Larry Smith, vice president and general manager of Cubic’s defense modernization division, said the company has assisted with both force development and political-military programs.
