Navy Chooses Cubic Team to Bid on Simulations Systems

Wednesday, November 02, 2005
Cubic Defense Applications, the defense segment of Cubic Corporation, has received a contract for the U.S. Navy's Generic Reconfigurable Training Systems (GRTS) Lot II program. The indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) contract has a ceiling value of $15 million, and covers computer simulations for training crews in how to operate the hull, mechanical and electrical systems of Navy ships. Cubic's Orlando, Fla.-based Simulation Systems Division is among several contractors that will have an opportunity to bid on up to $15 million in ship systems simulator business over the next five years. The companies will compete for contracts to develop modeling and simulation software to train crews to operate a ship's basic systems, including diesel and turbine engines, propulsion systems, generator systems, and damage control and related systems. These simulation models will run in a standardized Navy electronic classroom environment and offer a "whole-ship" environment for simultaneous training on multiple duty stations. "The Cubic team offers outstanding technical expertise and understanding of the U.S. Navy's requirements, and is able to provide rapidly reconfigurable systems that provide exceptional training value to our Navy customer," said Ed Kulakowski, director of Operator and Maintainer Training Systems for Cubic's Simulation Systems Division. Cubic teamed with Atlantis Systems International (USA) to win the award. Atlantis brings extensive experience in modeling ship's systems to the program, as well as the graphical tool, OpenSim, licensed from GSE Systems Inc. OpenSim automatically generates executable code from "drag-and-drop" library representations of the target system components. The Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) is expected to award the first orders for GRTS Lot II systems early in 2006.
