Cubic to furnish support to Africa Command

Contractor will provide technical expertise, develop training exercises

Cubic Applications Inc. will furnish support for joint training and exercises conducted by the U.S. Africa Command (U.S. AFRICOM) under a contract worth roughly $30 million.

Under the contract, Cubic’s Information Operations Division will supply technical experts to assist the command, and also develop and implement training exercises for the command’s J7 Joint Training and Exercise Division, company officials said this month. The company began providing the services in June, the officials said.

The company’s Information Operations Division already provides AFRICOM with media analysis and related services. On the new contract, the Information Operations Division will pair with the company’s Defense Modernization Division to supply the new services.

The contract expands San Diego-based Cubic’s work in the realm of mission support services to operational, combatant and component commanders, company officials said.

U.S. AFRICOM, based in Stuttgart, Germany, serves as the Defense Department’s communications and outreach component for security and related matters to African nations, the African Union and regional economic communities. The command was established in 2007 as part of an effort to consolidate duties previously distributed among three different U.S. military headquarters.

Cubic ranks No. 96 on Washington Technology's 2009 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
