Cubic provides next-generation tactical engagement simulation system for realistic training
The US Army’s Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI) and Army Contracting Command-Orlando (ACC-ORL) awarded Cubic Global Defense (CGD), a business unit of Cubic, more than $10 million for new orders of its Instrumentable-Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System Individual Weapon Systems 2 (I-MILES IWS 2).
I-MILES IWS 2 is a laser-based simulation system that is integral to the quality and realism of live, force-on-force training for soldiers. The systems are delivered to all US Army home-stations and are important tools for building mission readiness – the Army’s No. 1 priority.
I-MILES IWS 2 transmits laser messages when triggered by blank ammunition fired by a military weapon. Body sensors detect hits and perform real-time casualty assessments to replicate the effects of combat. The data is recorded for later review and assessment of effectiveness. The user-friendly system features small, lightweight components for individual soldiers, and requires less time to attach the Small Arms Transmitters and align to the weapon than previous versions. It also maintains position during an entire exercise.
