Cubic Corporation (NYSE: CUB) today announced that its Cubic Global Defense (CGD) business division and Battlespace Simulations Inc. (BSI), signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) to jointly work on developing solutions for the Live, Virtual and Constructive (LVC) training market. BSI is a leader in the simulation of threat environments and tools to create Computer Generated Forces.
Under the agreement, the parties will integrate BSI’s Modern Air Combat Environment (MACE) into CGD’s air and ground training offerings to meet the increasing demand for operators to train in realistic and complex battlespace environments. MACE will provide multi-domain computer-generated forces, including simulation of weapon guidance and flyouts; fifth-generation blue and red weapons systems; and physics-based representations of the electromagnetic spectrum.
“Today, in the live domain, it’s nearly impossible to train in a representative threat environment similar to what a near-peer scenario would look like,” said Jonas Furukrona, vice president of Air Training Solutions, CGD. “Having BSI’s market-leading solutions integrated as part of our new LVC products across CGD brings significant benefit to our customers to train in a multi-domain environment with advanced sensors and threats that will effectively sharpen Tactics, Techniques and Procedures.”
“We are beyond excited at this opportunity to combine BSI’s expertise in generating virtual and constructive players and contested battlespaces with Cubic’s live training expertise. It’s a natural fit and I’m confident, that together, we can dramatically improve warfighter training,” said Gary DeYoung, president and chief executive officer of BSI.
In addition to MACE, the companies are also looking at other potential areas of collaboration around communications and training architectures.
