Designed as a fully integrated ground combat training system, the I-TESS II system can be deployed in military operations in urban terrain facilities and non-live fire manoeuvre ranges, located at various USMC bases and installations.

The I-TESS II system incorporates components that include small-arms laser transmitters, rocket-propelled grenades, AT4 anti-tank and anti-armour rocket simulators, and laser detection sensors for personnel, vehicles, mobile and portable command and control systems.

The company will include enhanced software and access to instructional videos in its future deliveries to make the I-TESS II system more accessible with enhanced features.

Developed based on Cubic's latest laser wireless instrumentation products, the system requires minimal setup time and delivers after action reviews (AARs) immediately upon training completion.
