Support for Rotational and Pre-Deployment Exercises
Cubic announced 16 March that it has won a $42 million contract to support live, virtual and constructive (LVC) rotational and pre-deployment exercises at the US Army’s joint Readiness training Center (JRTC) at Fort Polk, LA.
JRTC is one of the Army’s Combat Training Centres focused on providing realistic, enhanced collective training experiences at the Brigade Combat Team level. The centre trains light infantry, air assault, airborne and special operations units, including rangers; and hosts various rotational training exercises involving all other US military forces.
Under the contract, Cubic will continue to assist the JRTC with integrating US and allied forces into rotational training exercises through scenarios focused on Decisive Action and theatre-specific operational environments. These exercises are high fidelity, capstone training events conducted at the Brigade Combat Team and Special Operations Forces Operational Detachment B level and are conducted for units targeted for deployment in support of ongoing military operations overseas. They include situational training, live fire, force-on-force and integrated LVC training. Cubic will also provide expanded role play, technical support for combat training instrumentation, battlefield effects, video and cultural role players (foreign language speakers).
“Cubic has served the JRTC since 2001, assisting the Army in training more than 149 brigade combat team and over one million soldiers,” said Bill David, vice president and programme manager of JRTC, Cubic Global Defense.
