Cubic Corp. wins $33M contract to support, repair simulator system

Cubic Defense Systems has won a $35 million follow-on contract to support and repair the British Army’s Area Weapons Effects Simulator system.

The system was originally developed and installed under a contract awarded to Cubic Corp. in 1998.

It is located at the Salisbury Plain Training Area in the United Kingdom as well as at the British Army Training Unit Suffield in Alberta, Canada.

The AWES system simulates large-scale force-on-force combat exercises, including the effects of direct fire, artillery, mortar fire, mines and air-delivered munitions as well as nuclear, biological and chemical weapons, Cubic Corp. said in a release.

The system also tracks and monitors the actions and positions of more than 1,200 individual soldiers and 250 vehicles using GPS technology, records “hits,” “kills” and “misses” of small-arms fire with Cubic’s Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System (MILES) technology, and recreates combat exercises for post-mission analysis, the company said.
