Canada: Cubic Corporation has won a USD 12 million contract amendment from the Canadian Department of National Defence for the initial phase of the Urban Operations Training System (UOTS) capability. The company claims that the UOTS complements the Weapon Effects Simulation (WES) force-on-force engagement training system deployed by Cubic in 2006 by adding an urban village training capability in several regions throughout Canada. Under this first phase, Cubic will complete the integration and validation tasks for the system instrumentation utilised in the UOTS environment.
Under the task orders Cubic will install hundreds of devices for high-fidelity tracking solutions to include: grenade and improvised explosive device (IED) simulators, video equipment, video servers, special effects generators (sights, sounds, and smells) and targets. Information collected from high-fidelity tracking devices is routed to a central location where it is aggregated into a real-time view of the training scenario and stored for after-action review, providing detailed assessment and feedback to evaluators and soldiers on the execution of their tactics, techniques and procedures.
