The US Army placed its latest order for systems and spare equipment under Cubic’s 2005 contract with the Army’s Program Executive Office for Simulation and Training Instrumentation (PEO STRI).
Cubic, the world’s leading provider of live combat training systems, provided its MILES engagement simulation systems, as well as tracking and positioning technologies, during the nine-day “force-on-force” exercise. It was the first RSLF exercise that incorporated Cubic’s MILES and instrumentation systems.
“Cubic was honored to be part of this historic event,” said Ray Barker, executive vice president of Cubic Defense Applications. “It provided us with a unique opportunity to demonstrate friendship and cooperation with our allies, and conduct combat operations using the most capable training systems available today.”
The event, held during the months of February and March, involved over 250 combat vehicles and 460 dismounted soldiers equipped with Cubic’s instrumented MILES system. Cubic’s command and control system provided GPS positioning and information and casualty status of the troops and forces in real time, and recorded the data for post-mission analysis.
“Our equipment worked extremely well,” said John Naff, vice president of Cubic Defense Applications. “The RSLF quickly grasped the functionality of the systems and significantly sharpened their combat skills. At the same time, the U.S. forces had the opportunity to train in an open desert environment – tough terrains that troops will face in the contemporary operational environment.”
Cubic has delivered more than 140 000 MILES systems worldwide since 1997.
Cubic’s deployable instrumentation system provides situational awareness to the training analyst, live monitoring of events and instant replay for after action reviews.
