SAN DIEGO, Dec. 6 (UPI) -- Equipment and systems for a military training center are being supplied to an unidentified country in the Asia-Pacific region by Cubic Defense Systems.

A subsidiary of Cubic Corporation, Cubic Defense Systems, said the contract for "significant quantities" of equipment is worth more than $70 million and was issued by a long-term customer.

The equipment ordered includes laser-based simulation equipment, vehicle kits, numerous weapon configurations, indirect fire assets, and support equipment. Accessories, communication system components, after-action review capabilities and exercise control upgrades are also part of the package.

"This contract from a long-term customer reinforces our extensive and growing footprint in the Asia Pacific region," said Dave Schmitz, president of Cubic Defense Systems. "We are committed to providing the highest levels of customer service and on-time delivery to satisfy this important contract."

Engineering and production work for the contract will be conducted at company facilities in New Zealand and the United States.

Delivery of the equipment will begin late next year, the company said.
