Army taps Cubic for battle command system

San Diego-based Cubic Corp. has won a two-year, $6.2 million contract from the Army to design, develop and implement a system that collects knowledge and information from across the service, the company announced Dec. 2.

Cubic's Training and Education Division in Fort Leavenworth, Kan., will establish and operate the Army's Battle Command Knowledge System. The system will comprise a group of interactive networks including Web-based repositories of meta data, subject matter experts and Web services that soldiers can access through standard browsers.

Cubic will partner on the project with Triple-i Corp. of Overland Park, Kan., which offers systems integration and consulting services.

Soldiers will use the system to use knowledge quickly to solve operational problems, according to Cubic. The system will give them direct access to a wide range of experts and information within specific units, staff organizations, education and training institutions, and professional communities of practice.

Cubic offers defense applications and transportation technologies. It has 5,070 employees and annual sales of $634 million. The company ranks at No. 71 on Washington Technology's 2004 Top 100 list, which measures federal contracting revenue.
