Cubic Wins Contract with the USMC for New Weapons Simulation Capabilities

Cubic Corporation’s (NYSE: CUB), San Diego-based Cubic Defense Systems announced today it was awarded a contract in excess of $10 million from the U.S. Marine Corps to supply weapon instrumentation that will integrate into the Instrumented-Tactical Engagement Simulation System (I-TESS II).  

Cubic will support the design, development, integration, ruggedized prototype, testing and effectiveness evaluation of enhancements to the squad immersive training environment (SITE) and the integration with I-TESS II. 


I-TESS II is a fully integrated ground combat training system based on the company’s latest laser-based wireless instrumentation products. The system is used in military operations in urban terrain facilities and non-live fire maneuver ranges located at various Marine Corps bases and installations.  

“This system will provide the U.S. Marine Corps an exceptional training environment using proven components,” said Dave Schmitz, president of Cubic Defense Systems. “Our enhancements address current training proficiency and readiness gaps at the squad-level and will be used to support both direct force-on-force and force-on-target tactical engagement training. We are proud to support our Marines with this more sophisticated and realistic training experience.”

Engineering work for the training systems will be performed in San Diego, Calif. and is expected to be completed by 2017.
