Cubic to Showcase Industry-Leading Air Combat Training and C4ISR Solutions at Avalon 2017

Cubic Global Defense (CGD), a business unit of Cubic Corporation (NYSE: CUB), today announced that it will exhibit advanced air combat training systems that can bridge the gap between current training and next-generation live, virtual and constructive (LVC) training at Avalon 2017 in Geelong, Victoria, Australia from February 28 – March 5. In addition, Cubic Mission Solutions (CMS) will be presenting its comprehensive Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) solutions. Avalon is comprised of two concurrent events – the Australian International Airshow and Aerospace and Defense Exposition. The mission of these events is to promote aviation and the development of resources for the Australia and Asia-Pacific regions.

“With six decades of experience developing realistic training systems to improve warfighting capabilities, Cubic has become a leading provider of critical technologies designed to raise human awareness and mission readiness,” said Dave Buss, president of Cubic Global Defense. “Avalon is an exciting opportunity for us to share our NextTraining strategy and we look forward to demonstrating our innovative technologies to the Australasian customers.”

Cubic will exhibit the following solutions at the show:

  • P5 Combat Training System (CTS/TCTS): P5 CTS relays Time, Space, and Positioning Information (TSPI) between participating aircraft and range systems while internally recording weapon events during training sorties. This enables real-time, live monitoring and recorded mission data of air-to-air, air-to-ground and surface-to-air training scenarios for post mission analysis.
  • Bandit Board: The Cubic Bandit Board is an integrated low-cost tactical training capability that transmits the live P5 CTS display onto a kneeboard tablet of a pilot in an aggressor “Red Air” aircraft. With this innovative enhancement, “Red Air” now has a high-fidelity, real-time picture of all players in a combat training exercise, transforming a second- or third-generation aircraft into a formidable opponent.
  • Secure LVC Advanced Training Solutions: As the industry System Integrator for the Air Force Research Lab’s Secure LVC Advanced Training Environment (SLATE) Advanced Technology Demonstration (ATD), Cubic will support the development and demonstration of a new secure waveform with tactical aircraft and range ground stations as part of a LVC system for air combat training.
  • Comprehensive C4ISR: CMS offers interoperable, end-to-end C4ISR technologies that provide information capture, assessment, exploitation and dissemination in a secure network-centric environment. CMS improves intelligence at the edge with access to real-time full motion video via cloud-based software that pairs video with geospatial and user-added context. Mission critical information is transported using ultra-portable, inflatable satellite communications (SATCOM) antenna solutions. Consistent connectivity is ensured across assets and teams with modular, man-portable communications products, high-speed data links and signal intelligence products. CMS solutions can be deployed as a set or a single specialized component to complete or expand existing capabilities.
