Cubic Defence Australia has been selected as the primary contractor for the development and delivery of simulation-enabled training events for the Royal Australian Navy (RAN).
The four-year contract will see Cubic Defence Australia enhance the RAN’s multi-site synthetic training events at the Navy Synthetic Warfighting Centre (NSWC) by providing a wide range of simulation planning, technical support and professional interactors.
The NSWC was recently established at the HMAS Watson Naval Base on Sydney Harbour to facilitate synthetic training events and focus on delivering mission training activities in both land-based simulators and ships in an agile manner. Supporting both individual and collective training, Cubic will design and deliver these synthetic training events and networks involving a combination of dedicated simulators, which will be distributed to naval vessels.
“We are proud to partner with the RAN in the ongoing development of the Navy Synthetic Warfighting Centre,” stated Miles Macdonald, general manager of Cubic Defence Australia. “We look forward to leveraging the expertise of our Australian simulation team and the best practices of our various global programs to aid the RAN in achieving world-leading capabilities for simulation-enabled individual and collective training.”
Cubic’s contract will increase the potential of live, virtual and constructive training integration across the RAN. The deal is valued at approximately USD $7.11 million or AUD $9 million.
In addition to its partnership with the RAN, 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.
Cubic Defence Australia is is part of Cubic Global Defense (CGD), a business unit of Cubic Corporation.
