Cubic Defense Applications has won a new $12.5 million order from the U.S. Army for a wireless system used to assess casualties in real-time during training sessions.
The company said the Instrumentable Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System Tactical Vehicle Systems are used on wheeled or tracked tactical vehicles, buildings and fixed equipment.
I-MILES TVS also contains touch-screen displays with graphic interfaces and is designed for use in direct-fire and force-on-force instrumented training scenarios.
Cubic completed its first shipment of more than 1,000 I-MILES TVS to the Army in November, with most going to the Army’s Joint Readiness Training Center at Fort Polk, La and the National Training Center at Fort Irwin, Calif.
Six tactical vehicle systems will help train end users in Fort Carson, Colo.
By May 2013, Cubic expects to deliver more than 3,000 systems under the first option of its 2010 contract with the Army’s program executive office for simulation, training and instrumentation.
