Cubic Defence Australia has been reselected to deliver contracted civilian simulation support staff in development and delivery of local and distributed simulation-enabled training events for the RAN.
According to a statement released by Cubic, the two-year contract, valued at approximately AU$8 million, provides a wide range of simulation planning, technical support, and professional interactors to enhance RAN’s multisite synthetic training events at the Navy Synthetic Warfighting Centre (NSWC).
Since August 2017, Cubic has been embedded in the NSWC organisation using live, virtual and constructive (LVC) simulation technologies, as well as contributing to research and development of future simulation technology. This will enable major and minor fleet units to conduct distributed mission exercises.
“NSWC Cubic continues to foster strong customer relationships at all levels ensuring the team continues to deliver on the Services,” Miles Macdonald, general manager Cubic Defence Australia, said.
In addition to its contract with the RAN at NSWC, Cubic contracted support to Fleet Force Generation Directorate (FFGD), located at Fleet Headquarters in NSW. The purpose of FFGD is to enable Fleet Command to deliver the Navy’s warfighting effect by designing, planning and executing exercises necessary to train and deploy a Task Group.
