"Cubic has served the JRTC since 2001, assisting the Army in training more than 149 brigade combat team and over one million soldiers," Bill David, vice president and program manager of JRTC, Cubic Global Defense, said in a press release. "Ensuring readiness is critical for the Army's combat teams, and so we appreciate the continued confidence the U.S. Army has in Cubic and our program teams' ability to deliver exemplary service."

Cubic said it is to continue to assist the JRTC with integrating U.S. and allied forces into rotational training exercises through scenarios focused on decisive action and theater-specific operational environments.

The exercises for units deploying overseas include situational training, live-fire, force-on-force and integrated training. Expanded role play, technical support for combat training instrumentation, battlefield effects, video and cultural role players are included.
