The Marine Corps' Naval Air Systems Command has awarded a five-year, $43.4 million task order to Cubic Corp. to supply the corps with instructors and operations and maintenance services for aviation simulators.
Under the Marine Corps' Aircrew Training Systems program, Cubic's defense applications business unit will operate and maintain virtual simulators at six Marine installations in the United States. The simulators include flights, radar night attack, weapons systems, maintenance, procedures and multitask trainers.
The task order was awarded under an indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract that Cubic and 10 other contractors received earlier this year through the Navy's Fielded Training Systems Support II program. The companies are competing with each other for task orders to provide a range of support services at Navy and Marine Corps sites worldwide.Roseanne Gerin is a staff writer for
