Cubic outfits Australian air force with combat training information pods

SAN DIEGO. Cubic Global Defense reports that it has outfitted the Royal Australian Air Force’s (RAAF's) Hawk 127 fleet with more than 60 P5 Combat Training Systems (CTS/TCTS) with Air Combat Maneuvering Instrumentation (ACMI) pods.

Cubic’s P5CTS provides real-time postmission training for air-to-air, air-to-ground, and surface-to-air combat missions by displaying the live-air picture; recording mission data; and relaying time, space, and positioning information (TSPI) among the aircraft participating in training sorties. Elements of the system include GPS-enabled, aircraft-mounted airborne instrumentation pods that communicate with ground stations, which enable air crews to conduct, monitor, and manage air combat training and postflight debriefing.
