Cubic To Provide Advanced Instrumentation For US Test Ranges

by Staff Writers
San Diego CA (SPX) Nov 18, 2010
Cubic Defense Applications has been awarded a contract valued at approximately $35 million as part of an industry team developing the Common Range Integrated Instrumentation System (CRIIS) for U.S. military test ranges. If all options are exercised, Cubic's participation in the CRIIS program has a potential value close to $90 million.

The CRIIS program fulfills a critical Department of Defense (DoD) requirement to provide Time, Space, and Position Information (TSPI) and system test data to support weapon system testing for a variety of platforms, including advanced aircraft, ships, helicopters, unmanned aerial vehicles, ground vehicles and dismounted soldiers.

Cubic is a key subcontractor on a team led by Rockwell Collins. The U.S. Air Force awarded Rockwell Collins a $140 million contract to develop the first phase of CRIIS.

"Cubic is known worldwide for its air combat training systems. With this major contract win, we are expanding significantly into the test and evaluation (T and E) instrumentation market," said Brad Feldmann, President of Cubic Defense Applications.

Under contract to Rockwell Collins, Cubic will be responsible for portions of the design, development, packaging and integration of airborne, ground vehicle and shipboard subsystems.

Cubic also has responsibility for site installation and activation. The initial contract includes development for three airborne subsystems, a wing-mounted instrumentation pod for F-15 and F-16 aircraft, and two internal systems designed to be installed within the F/A-18, F-22 and F-35 aircraft.

Development of the airborne, ground vehicle and shipboard subsystems will take place in San Diego. Ultimately, CRIIS will be operational at eight test ranges including Edwards Air Force Base, Eglin AFB, Nellis AFB, Naval Air Weapons Station China Lake, Naval Air Station Point Mugu, NAS Patuxent River, White Sands Missile Range and the Yuma Test Center.
