The MCoE provides trained and adaptive soldiers and leaders for an Army at war, while developing future requirements for the individual soldier and the maneuver force. Its function is to serve as the user representative in developing training methodologies and products, concepts, doctrines, organizational requirements and materiel capability requirements for current and future forces, including the Heavy Brigade Combat Team; Stryker Brigade Combat Team; Infantry Brigade Combat Team; Airborne, Ranger and Special Forces; and other units such as the Battlefield Surveillance Brigade and Cavalry organizations. The MCoE also provides instructors to teach classes across the organization. The MCoE accomplishes its mission by integrating virtual, constructive, and live training; exploiting existing and emerging technologies; and training, doctrine and capability development.
"Cubic's Team, which includes Dynamics Research Corporation (DRC), will provide this program with a broad range of knowledge, skills, and capabilities to meet the MCoE's responsibility to provide TRADOC with a full spectrum of support in leader development, doctrine, training, capability development, and training support products for the maneuver force," said Glenn Marsh, Cubic's Vice President and General Manager for the Omega Training and Education Division, located in Columbus, Georgia. Omega will lead this effort for Cubic.
