Lockheed picked Cubic Defense Systems to supply debriefing software, airborne instrumentation and ground station planning technologies in the program’s system development phase, Cubic said Tuesday.
“The F-35 training subsystem will be embedded and integrated in the aircraft as they roll off Lockheed Martin’s production line,” said Dave Schmitz, Cubic Defense Systems’ president.
Cubic and partner DRS Technologies will use P5 architecture as the baseline for the fleet’s internal training subsystem, Cubic says.
The CTS is intended to support F-35 programs in the U.S., Australia, Norway, Italy and the U.K.
Cubic’s engineering team will perform contract work in San Diego.
