Cubic's defense business wins $12.5M order for tactical vehicle systems

System features intuitive improvements like a touch-screen user display

Cubic Defense Applications has won a $12.5 million order to provide its Instrumentable MILES Tactical Vehicle System, or I-MILES TVS, to the U.S. Army.

The order was awarded by the Army’s Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation.

The I-MILES TVS uses Cubic’s Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System technology to provide real-time casualty assessment for MILES tactical engagement training in direct-fire, force-to-force instrumented training scenarios, Cubic said in a release.

The system has weapon simulation and casualty assessment accuracy capabilities for vehicles and fixed structures, adapting to any wheeled or tracked tactical vehicle.

It can also work with buildings, fixed equipment and other structures, Cubic said.

The system also features improvements, such as touch-screen displays with intuitive graphical user interfaces.

Cubic has also completed its first shipments of the I-MILES TVS system to the Army, the first six of which went to Fort Carson, Colo., where they will be used to train end users.

Deliveries will be completed in May 2013, under the first option for a contract that the company won with the program executive office in 2010. The second option includes this $12.5 million order, the company said.
