Cubic to assist Navy with WMD response training

Cubic Applications Inc. has won a $16.3 million Navy contract to evaluate and develop emerging technologies that will help the military train to respond to nuclear, biological and chemical attacks.

The project's goal is to assess emerging technologies and deliver prototypes that will enable joint training for combating weapons of mass destruction across live, virtual and constructive domains, according to a company news release.

Under the contract, Cubic will perform a number of tasks, such as identifying and evaluating emerging technologies, testing and evaluating prototypes and developing an instrumented training system, company officials said.

The Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division awarded the contract. Employees from Cubic's Threat Technologies Division will perform the work in Shalimar, Fla., near Eglin Air Force Base.

The work is part of the Training Transformation Initiative for the U.S. Joint Forces Command. The project is scheduled to be completed in 2011.

Cubic Applications is part of the defense segment of Cubic Corp., of San Diego. The parent company ranks No. 80 on Washington Technology's 2008 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
