Maintenance and Support for 300,000+ Systems
Cubic Global Defense announced on 20 March that it will receive a contract award valued at over $185 million as a result of its participation in the Lockheed Martin-led winning team that has been awarded a seven-year, $3.53 billion contract for the US Army’s Training Aids, Devices, Simulators and Simulations (TADSS) Maintenance Programme (ATMP). The contract will sustain more than 300,000 fielded, including live-fire ranges and instrumentation systems worldwide.
ATMP allows maintainers to use mobile devices with advanced management information technology to efficiently and effectively track and maintain a wide range of training systems. This allows the Army to have maximum operational awareness and make informed decisions, using on-demand access to accurate, complete and timely data.
Cubic will receive more than $185 million with substantial additional over-and-above work likely to sustain TADSS across the live, virtual, constructive and gaming (LVC-G) domains at multiple locations supporting the Army’s readiness at home stations and Combat Training Centres (CTCs). Cubic will be responsible for global operations, supporting 21 locations across 10 states and three countries with more than 500 personnel. The ATMP program will support over 61 different types of training aids and devices, to include Cubic’s man-worn Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System (MILES) and Home-station Instrumented Training System (HITS).
“Delivering integrated and effective training solutions to enhance operational performance and mission readiness are at the core of our NextTraining strategy,” commented Cubic Global Defense President, Dave Buss, adding “We look forward to working closely with Lockheed Martin and other partners included in this programme to improve operational availability of the Army’s TADDS in the critical role of training soldiers worldwide.”
“Our combined knowledge and expertise differentiated us from the competition and allows us to bring next-generation maintenance and sustainment to Army TADSS,” observed General Manager and Vice President, Lockheed Martin Training and Logistics Solutions, Amy Gowder.
Lockheed Martin is the prime contractor for the award, with Cubic being a major subcontractor. Cubic will begin its five-month phase-in with full performance anticipated to commence in October this year.
