Simulation training services contract for Royal Australian navy won by Cubic
SAN DIEGO. Officials at Cubic Global Defense, a Cubic Corp. business unit, announced that its Cubic Defence Australia unit received a four-year contract valued at $7.11 million (AUD $9 million) from the Royal Australian navy (RAN) for the development and delivery of local and distributed simulation-enabled training events.
Under contract, Cubic Defence Australia will deliver, simulation planning, technical support, and professional interactors to enhance RAN’s multisite synthetic training events at the Navy Synthetic Warfighting Centre (NSWC).
The NSWC was recently established at the HMAS Watson Naval Base on Sydney Harbour. The NSWC will facilitate synthetic training events and focus on delivering local and distributed mission training activities in both land-based simulators and ships.
In addition, Cubic’s contract will increase the potential of live, virtual and constructive training integration across the RAN. Supporting both individual and collective training, Cubic will design and deliver synthetic training events and networks involving a combination of dedicated simulators, which will be distributed to naval vessels.
Officials state that Cubic is the incumbent Simulation Support Service contractor for the Australian Defence Simulation and Training Centre (ADSTC), which supports joint collective training. Cubic also provides training as well as simulation systems and services to the Australian Army and the Royal Australian Air Force.
