Cubic Corporation (NYSE: CUB) will showcase its latest innovations and technology in tactical military communications and training for the Army Aviation industry this weekend at the AAAA Annual Forum and Exposition.
Among the highlights will be Cubic's new Multiband Miniature Transceiver (MMT), a much smaller, lighter and lower-cost integrated digital data link capable of providing voice, data and imagery information for both airborne and ground applications across four frequency bands.
"The MMT will save our customers size, weight and power, at a significantly lower cost than previous generations of data links," said Brad Feldmann, president of Cubic Defense Applications, which makes the system. "It has the potential for broad application, and is another example of Cubic innovation producing cost-effective solutions."
Cubic will also showcase its newest Personnel Locator System, the 2nd generation of a high-performance search-and-rescue system that has been used by NATO and U.S. forces for more than two decades to locate downed pilots and for other combat search and rescue missions. The advanced PLS is interoperable with all U.S. combat survival radios and standard civil emergency distress beacons. It is also compatible with many NATO survival radios.
Known as the Quad A Expo, the event is sponsored by the Army Aviation Association of America, a not-for-profit advocacy group for the U.S. Army aviation community. Companies from all over the world attend. This year, the expo is from April 1-4 at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel and Convention Center in Nashville.
