Cubic Awarded USAF Contract for P5 Combat Training Security Update

-Cubic Mission and Performance Solutions, Cubic Defense Applications Inc. division has been awarded a firm-fixed-price contract for the P5 Combat Training System (P5CTS) System Security Update (SSU)

Cubic Corporation, Cubic Mission and Performance Solutions (CMPS) division today announced that it has been awarded a firm-fixed-price contract from the U.S. Air Force for the P5 Combat Training System (P5CTS) System Security Update (SSU). Cubic’s P5 SSU solution features a low-risk, flight-proven, National Security Agency (NSA)-certified Type 1 multilevel encryptor that enables or restricts the access and transfer of information between security domains on the P5CTS without modifying the current training Concept of Operations (CONOPS).

With P5 SSU, 4th Gen aircraft will eventually be capable of training securely with over 600 fielded 5th Gen F-35s equipped with encrypted P5 to protect the Techniques, Tactics and Procedures (TTPs) from enemy exploitation.

“Cubic’s current P5CTS/TCTS allows aircrew to train anywhere, anytime and capture live training truth data for post mission analysis and debriefing. Cubic is honored to be selected as the prime contractor for P5 SSU,” said Mike Knowles, president of Cubic Mission and Performance Solutions. We look forward to delivering this critical air combat training upgrade to our warfighters.”
