SAN DIEGO, June 20 (UPI) -- Cubic Corporation is to provide support services to the U.S. military under two separate awards with a combined value of more than $190 million.

The first award, given to subsidiary Cubic Worldwide Technical Services, is a task order under the U.S. Navy's Fielded Training Systems Support III indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract for operations and maintenance support of training devices for MH-60R and MH-60S helicopters and other aircraft.

The task order has a five-year period of performance and is valued at more than $65 million, Cubic said.

Support services will be performed at Navy installations in California, Florida, Virginia and Hawaii. Work will include simulator and academic instruction for pilots and aircrew at two of the locations.

"This important and exciting win establishes Cubic as a significant training support provider to the U.S. Navy helicopter community ... said Al Sargeant, senior vice president and general manager of Cubic Mission Support Services' Strategic Solutions Group. "We are dedicated to providing the highest quality support together with the lowest cost solutions to all U.S. services in today's very tight defense budget."

The second award is a sub-contract from Northrop Grumman, whose Northrop Grumman Technical Services unit had won a multiple-award IDIQ contract in May to support the Joint Staff J7 Joint Force Development Program.

The program is for support to combatant commands, Joint Task Force Headquarters, Joint Force Functional Component Headquarters, and multi-national partners worldwide and covers the planning and execution of joint events, collective and individual joint training, analysis of joint and coalition operations and related matters.

The sub-contract is for five years and Cubic expects it will be worth $125 million.
