Cubic's TeraLogics Awarded Contract from DISA to Support US Africa Command

Cubic Corporation ( NYSE: CUB ) today announced  its subsidiary TeraLogics, LLC , which operates within the Cubic Global Defense (CGD) business unit, was awarded  a $1.4 million contract from the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) to expand its existing Unified Video Dissemination System (UVDS) suite of services contract into the European theater to achieve U.S. Africa Command’s (AFRICOM) Airborne, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (AISR) requirements.

TeraLogics, a developer of agile software, will also support the engineering and implementation of an enterprise-wide transcoding service for the Full Motion Video (FMV) disseminated through the UVDS AISR architecture.

The UVDS for DISA is a next-generation FMV processing, exploitation and dissemination (PED) system that provides persistent, focused, real-time, operational information flow to tactical and enterprise end users. UVDS’ suite of services includes the routing backbone and web-based application portal, which will be installed at DISA’s U.S. European Command (EUCOM) Defense Enterprise Computing Center (DECC) to directly support AFRICOM operations in addition to users outside the continental United States (OCONUS). This deployment of UVDS in the European region is the first iteration of the future global UVDS architecture, enabling real-time access to AISR through proximity-based unified video portals and a robust global multicast network.

“The addition of the UVDS node in EUCOM and enterprise transcoding capabilities will ensure users requesting and accessing FMV information will get it from the closest node with reduced latency, increased performance and improved overall user experience,” said Mike Twyman, executive vice president of communications, intelligence and surveillance systems, Cubic Global Defense. “This award extends UVDS video integration and dissemination to the edge, while strengthening Command, Control, Communications, Computers, ISR (C4ISR) capabilities for our warfighters.”

As for enterprise transcoding, TeraLogics will ensure AISR FMV is standardized throughout the architecture and made accessible to bandwidth-constrained users and mobile devices. This capability will also assist new and emerging encoding technologies like high-efficiency video coding (HEVC), which will help reduce overall wide-area network and satellite communication bandwidth consumption while maintaining video quality.

TeraLogics has worked with DISA on UVDS since 2008 and was awarded a follow-on contract in 2014. TeraLogics was acquired by Cubic Corporation in December 2015.
