Cubic Corporation (NYSE: CUB) announced today that it was awarded a $4.25 million multi-year task order to provide interactive doctrine training courseware for the U.S. Army. The task order is part of the Maneuver Center of Excellence (MCoE) indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) contract and includes options for future training development. Cubic will provide courseware for the U.S. MCoE at Fort Benning, Ga. in support of its mission to develop and produce training strategies, doctrine, capabilities, analysis, instruction and products.
Under the awarded Dual Use Interactive Doctrine (DUID) program, Cubic will create the processes and systems to develop Army doctrinal publications into interactive manuals, real-time strategy training and other training tools. The DUID program will leverage Cubic Advanced Learning Solutions (CALS) game-based learning approaches and experience from existing contracts, such as the Navy’s Littoral Combat Ship training program , to create new innovative solutions customized for the U.S. Army.
“Cubic is proud to provide continued support to the U.S. Army’s MCoE soldiers with the application of our advanced, immersive learning technologies. Doctrine instruction is a core requirement of the U.S. Army and our training solutions will significantly increase soldier readiness,” said Bill Toti, president of Cubic’s Mission Support Services.
“Numerous studies have shown the use of simulated immersive environments increase learner engagement. Cubic continues to be a leader in this arena and will apply innovative techniques in the development of a real-time strategy application for the Army to be deployed across a variety of platforms,” said Dr. Bill Rebarick, general manager of Cubic Advanced Learning Solutions. “We plan to implement the latest instructional strategies and best practices for effective learning while utilizing the latest entertainment technologies. By combining the best of both worlds, Cubic will provide a training tool that will enable the success of future Army leaders.”
Cubic will collaborate with Army instructional specialists and doctrinal experts at the MCoE through the duration of the effort to support the Army’s Doctrine 2015 initiative.
