Cubic has won three indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contracts worth a total of approximately $300 million from the Navy to furnish training services for the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) program, the Defense Department said recently.
The first two contracts are for instructor-led and self-paced Train to Qualify and Train to Certify, shore-based training for both the Independence and Freedom variants of the LCS, which are designed by General Dynamics and Lockheed Martin, respectively.
The Navy awarded LCS construction contracts to both contractors. The LCS variants they produced have different hull designs, although they use the same weapons systems whether outfitted for anti-mine, anti-surface, or air defense. The variants require different training.
The third contract is for mission packages courseware development for Immersive Virtual Ship Environment-Interactive Multimedia Instruction.
Each of the contracts is worth as much as $99.5 million.
The Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division, Orlando, Fla., is the contracting activity.
