  • Cubic Global Defense strengthens offerings in the Asia-Pacific region

Cubic Global Defense (CGD), a business unit of Cubic Corporation (NYSE: CUB), today announced the award of a potential five-year task order valued at approximately $20 million to support the U.S. Pacific Command’s (USPACOM) Center For Excellence in Disaster Management and Humanitarian Assistance (CFE-DM) under the Navy’s SeaPort-e Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) Multiple Award Contract (MAC).  SeaPort-e, the U.S. Navy's web-based commercial e-procurement portal solution, provides a standardized, efficient means of soliciting offers from large and small businesses. All task orders are competitively solicited, awarded and managed using the SeaPort-e platform.

Under this task order, awarded by Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Pacific’s (SSC Pacific) Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence (C4I) and Information Operations Division based in San Diego, Cubic will support CFE-DM with various operational requirements such as advising USPACOM leaders, enabling focused engagements, training and education. In addition, Cubic will assist in increasing knowledge of best practices and information to enhance U.S. and international civil-military preparedness for disaster management and humanitarian assistance.

“Cubic is proud to partner with USPACOM and its work through the CFE-DM, supporting real-time operational commitments to the nations and allied partners in the Asia-Pacific region,” said Dave Buss, president of Cubic Global Defense. “When coupled with our work in training and exercise management in the PACOM Theater, this task order will allow us to strengthen our offerings of innovative, end-to-end solutions and build partner capacity in the Pacific.”

CFE-DM was established to bridge the understanding between civil and military humanitarian responders as well as to provide a Department of Defense platform for building disaster management, humanitarian assistance awareness and expertise among U.S. forces and partner nations in the Indo-Asia-Pacific. With more than 20 years of support and experience within USPACOM, Cubic continues to provide expertise in the areas of joint exercise support, modeling and simulation, software development, joint readiness, innovation, energy security and nation building.
