Cubic Global Defense (CGD), a business unit of Cubic Corporation ( NYSE: CUB ) today announced the delivery of its specialized training systems to the Ukrainian Army worth $1.7 million. The equipment is interoperable with their existing Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement Simulation (MILES) and Joint Multinational Readiness Center (JMRC) training systems allowing the Ukrainian Army to train at the brigade level.
The delivery includes the U.S. Army’s versions of Instrumented-Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System Individual Weapon Systems (I-MILES IWS) and Combat Vehicle Adapter Kits, which integrate with their current Tactical Vehicle System (I-MILES TVS) to enable simulation of combat vehicles and crew-served weapon simulators. The U.S. Army’s Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI) awarded the contract to Cubic for the delivery, training and sustainment of the I-MILES equipment in support of the Ukrainian Army.
“Cubic provides ongoing support to our nation’s allies and coalition partners in the most critical environments at the most critical time,” said Bill Toti, president of Cubic Global Defense. “Providing advanced training equipment and responding quickly to our customers’ needs for effective and affordable training, especially in areas of conflict, is a great priority for Cubic.”
Cubic currently provides on-site training and management for the Ukraine Land Forces to help develop and facilitate training exercises for previously delivered MILES system.
I-MILES accurately replicates the actual firing capabilities and effects of weapons during training, detects hits from laser “bullets,” and performs damage or casualty assessments on targets. Cubic's I-MILES TVS is the latest generation of I-MILES training systems for tracked and multi-wheeled vehicles. The system includes advanced features such as touch screens, graphics and Wi-Fi communications to offer easy setup, installation and operation. Adapter kits that include wireless modules can be added for simulation of combat vehicles.
