Cubic has secured an indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract for the US Navy’s Sailor 2025 Ready, Relevant Learning (RRL) FY-2021 Content Conversion programme.

The IDIQ contract was awarded to Cubic’s Cubic Mission and Performance Solutions (CMPS) business division.

With a $92.3m ceiling value, the single-source IDIQ contract has a four-year ordering period.

The contract will see Cubic deliver the ‘third wave of content conversion’ under the RRL pillar of ‘Sailor 2025’ (S2025).

According to Cubic, the RRL pillar of S2025 focuses on learning continuums. The use of modern methods to deliver training helps in rapid learning, knowledge retention and delivery for sailors.

The US Navy’s S2025 programme aims to enhance and modernise personnel management and training systems to ‘effectively recruit, develop, manage, reward and retain future forces’.

To support ratings-accession training, Cubic said it will use ‘innovative’ instructional systems design, systems engineering, training assessment approaches and new technologies.

Cubic also noted that the content will be delivered to sailors ‘over the course of their career-long learning continuum’.

The contract includes the design, development and delivery of modernised training content.

The training part of the contract includes the provision of courseware training products for the Navy ratings ‘Fire Control Technician, Master at Arms, Aviation Structural Mechanic, Electronics Technician Navigation, Submarines, Mineman, Information Systems Technician and Aviation Machinist’s Mate’.

Cubic mission and performance solutions president Mike Knowles said: “We are thrilled to continue expanding our role in supporting the US Navy as it enhances training for sailors to meet evolving and dynamic warfighting requirements.

“Our maritime training expertise and years of work with the navy allows us to deliver cutting-edge solutions at the point-of-need to accelerate learning and training proficiency.”

Work under the contract will be performed in Florida and is expected for completion in early 2025.
