AFRL's SLATE ATD is a consortium consists of industry and government agencies and aims to assess the technological feasibility of LVC ground and aerial subsystems.

Cubic will collaborate with SLATE ATD consortium members to produce a technology readiness level seven system prototype.

The company said it expects to carry out a final flight demonstration of the LVC system at Nevada-based Nellis Air Force Base.
