Cubic Taps Leonardo DRS to Supply F-35 Training Subsystems - top government contractors - best government contracting eventCubic‘s global defense unit has selected Leonardo DRS to provide over 500 internal subsystems of a combat training platform for the F-35 aircraft.

The effort would globally bring the number of F-35 units equipped with the P5 Combat Training System to over a thousand, Leonardo DRS said Friday.

The P5CTS is designed to record real-time mission data of training for air-to-air, air-to-ground and surface-to-air combat.

Leonardo will deliver the internal subsystems to Cubic over a four-year period to help support lots 12 through 14 of Lockheed Martin‘s F-35 production.

P5CTS’ internal subsystems are installed inside the aircraft unlike the complementary P5CTS pods that are externally mounted on an aircraft’s wings.
