Cubic Global Defense (CGD), a business unit of Cubic Corporation ( NYSE: CUB ) today announced the selection of Cubic Defence Australia as the primary contractor to provide a managed workforce solution for the Australian Defence Simulation and Training Centre (ADSTC) Simulation Support Services (SSS). The four-year contract is valued at $18 million with options for extension. ADSTC and the contracted services are based in Canberra, Australia, but will be distributed throughout the country and the Pacific to coalition partners.
ADSTC designs and delivers end-to-end joint and combined training exercises using world-class simulations to enhance realism, stimulate command, control and communications as well as Distributed Mission Training (DMT) for the Australian Defence Force (ADF). The SSS contract is a key enabler for the ADF’s Future Simulation Capability.
“Cubic is already heavily involved with simulation-enabled training with the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) and the Australian Army. With this new contract win, Cubic will provide ADSTC synergies and the ability to improve integration between single-service collective training and joint collective training,” said Mark Horn, general manager, Cubic Defence Australia. “Cubic looks forward to partnering with ADSTC to provide an outstanding Simulation Support Services team drawing on local Australian expertise and our best practices from working with other simulation and training centers around the world.”
Cubic continues to focus on enhancing training outcomes using simulation and by working closely with organizations, such as ADSTC, to enhance exercise delivery. Under this new contract, Cubic will support ADF’s highest-level training and simulation institutions.
