U.S. Navy to increase use of immersive game-based training
SAN DIEGO. Simulation and training company Cubic announced that it has received four additional delivery orders -- totaling $22 million -- from an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract to support the U.S. Navy’s Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) with the creation and delivery of immersive game-based courseware.
Cubic’s Orlando, Florida operations will be responsible for the development efforts of the Immersive Virtual Shipboard Environment (IVSE) for the LCS, which is considered to be directly aligned with U.S. Navy’s "Ready Relevant Learning" initiative. Cubic’s IVSE is an advanced learning product for the LCS training program that puts trainees in a photorealistic 3-D environment as it teaches various tasks in settings virtually identical to real-life scenarios. The additional orders received as part of Cubic’s indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) contract will add new functionality and virtual content to the current LCS virtual training environment.
