Cubic to Deliver Data Terminals, Work on BE-CDL Capabilities Under SAIC Contract
Science Applications International Corp. has awarded Cubic Defense a contract to support SAIC’s Hardware-In-The-Loop engineering services for the U.S. Army.
Cubic will design, develop and deliver full-duplex data terminals using secure and survivable Bandwidth-Efficient Common Data Link technology. The company will also continue advancing the BE-CDL capability as part of the contract.
Russ Marsh, vice president and general manager for secure communications at Cubic, said the company’s products enable resilient and reliable networked communications in contested environments.
Work under the contract will support next-generation data links for uncrewed aircraft systems and manned/unmanned teaming, Cubic said.
The defense contractor has been working on various communications solutions for the U.S. military.
In May, Cubic’s DTECH Mission Solutions partnered with Instant Connect Software and Rally Tactical Systems to develop a new tactical radio interoperability solution for U.S. armed forces and their allies. The solution uses Cubic’s radio-over-internet-protocol radio gateway products paired with Instant Connect’s push-to-talk platform built on Rally Tactical’s Engage Engine.
In March, the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory awarded Cubic Mission and Performance Solutions a contract to develop and demonstrate mesh network solutions supporting the Air Force’s High-Capacity Backbone initiative.
