Cubic Defence Australia has been reselected by the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) to support Navy Synthetic Warfighting Centre (NSWC).

The new contract has a two-year period and is valued at approximately $6m (A$8m).

It will see Cubic Defence Australia provide a broad range of services such as simulation planning and technical support.

It will also help professional interactors to improve RAN’s multisite synthetic training events at the NSWC.

Since 2017, Cubic’s live, virtual and constructive (LVC) simulation technologies have been installed within the NSWC organisation.

Cubic is also contributing to the research and development (R&D) of future simulation technology.

According to the company, this technology will enable major and minor fleet units to conduct distributed mission exercises.

Cubic Defence Australia general manager Miles Macdonald said: “NSWC Cubic continues to foster strong customer relationships at all levels, ensuring the team continues to deliver on the services.”

In August 2017, the RAN awarded a four-year contract to Cubic Defence Australia for the development and provision of local and distributed simulation-enabled training events.

Besides its latest contract with the RAN, Cubic was contracted to provide support to Fleet Force Generation Directorate (FFGD), located at Fleet Headquarters in New South Wales (NSW).

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