cubic corp logoCubic Corp.’s subsidiary Cubic Defense Systems has won a contract worth more than $10 million to install weapons systems into the U.S. Marine Corps‘ instrumented-tactical engagement simulation system, a ground combat training simulator.

The company will design, build, install and test the upgrade into a squad immersive training environment and the I-TESS II, Cubic said Thursday.

“Our enhancements address current training proficiency and readiness gaps at the squad-level and will be used to support both direct force-on-force and force-on-target tactical engagement training,” said Dave Schmitz, Cubic Defense Systems president.

The training platform is meant to be finished by 2017 and work will be performed in San Diego, Calif.

The Marine Corps use the the I-TESS II combat training system for non-live fire maneuvers and urban terrain military missions.
