Cubic Defense Systems Awarded ACMI Contract from Japan Air Self-Defense Forces
SAN DIEGO, Calif., Jan. 21, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - Cubic Defense Systems, a subsidiary of Cubic Corporation (NYSE: CUB) announced today it received contracts valued at more than $12 million to supply additional rangeless Air Combat Training System (ACTS) equipment to the Japan Air Self Defense Forces (JASDF).
Cubic's ACTS is a leading-edge system used for training fighter pilots in air-to-air and air-to-ground combat tactics. Using the latest generation GPS technology, it provides real-time feedback to pilots during training missions. It also records information during the mission that can be replayed for the aircrew post-mission for additional training value.
ACTS includes airborne instrumentation pods that are mounted to the aircraft and ground-based subsystems. The pods collect aircraft data during the mission and deliver real-time notifications to the cockpit through audible tones. The ground subsystems provide real-time display and post-mission debriefing using Cubic's Individual Combat Aircrew Display System (ICADS) software.
The Cubic system is the Asia-Pacific standard for ACMI training and supports annual and semi-annual multinational exercises including: Red Flag Alaska, Exercise Pitch Black and Talisman Sabre in Australia, Max Thunder in South Korea, Cobra Gold in Thailand and Commando Sling in Singapore.
