Cubic Global Defense has joined an L-3 Communications team to conduct research and evaluation of warfighter readiness and training.
The L-3 team includes Ball Aerospace and Leidos.
Under a five-year cost-plus-fixed-fee contract worth $200 million, the Warfighter Readiness Research Division Contractor Team will develop technology to create wide-spectrum readiness capabilities that are architecture, network and domain agnostic.
The group will also create and validate an interoperable, secure training toolset to increase training fidelity; enable comprehensive cross-mission, performance-based debriefs; and reduce training/exercise overhead for the U.S. Air Force, Cubic Global Defense said.
"We look forward to working with AFRL researchers and our industry partners within the Warfighter Readiness Research Division Contractor Team to find and deliver the knowledge and skills our warfighters need to dominate their operating environment," said Bill Toti, president of Cubic Global Defense.
"As part of our NextTraining strategy, Cubic is focused on raising mission readiness and optimizing human performance for our customers to enable the most effective and efficient training methods."
The contract work is to be performed at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio. Its completion is expected by January of 2023.
