Cubic to Provide P5 Combat Training System to Egyptian Air Force
SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - December 14, 2009) - Cubic Defense
Applications, Inc., the defense systems business of Cubic Corporation
(NYSE: CUB), is supplying its latest-generation air combat training
system to the Egyptian Air Force. Cubic and principal subcontractor DRS
Technologies, Inc. will provide the new "rangeless" P5 Combat Training
System (P5CTS) to Egypt under an $8.5 million contract.
"Cubic installed the Egyptian Air Force's original air combat training
system more than 20 years ago. With our long history in Egypt, it is
fitting that Egypt will receive the Middle East region's first P5 Combat
Training System," said John Naff, Vice President of Business
Development for Cubic Defense Applications.
Egypt is Cubic's third international sale involving the P5 system
through the 675th Air Armament Squadron at Eglin Air Force Base.
"It is an honor to add the Egyptian Air Force to our growing list of
U.S. and international customers for the world's most advanced
instrumented combat training system," said Philip J. Fisch, Senior
Director of Business Development for Cubic Defense Applications. "Many
nations have contacted Cubic about P5, and they are all impressed with
the advanced capabilities, security accreditations and interoperability
that the P5 system offers."
Planned for delivery in 2011, Egypt's new P5 system will supplement an
existing Cubic air combat training system that has been in operation
since the early 1990s. Egypt's Abu Suer and Fayid air bases will receive
the initial P5 components, including airborne instrumentation pods and
debriefing stations, but the goal is to eventually replace the earlier
system with the new high-performance P5 technology.
With their new "rangeless" system, Egypt's F-16 pilots will have
anywhere, anytime training capability using GPS-enabled airborne
instrumentation pods that track and record weapons engagements and can
be monitored in real time from a ground station. P5 also includes an
advanced debriefing system -- the Individual Combat Aircrew Display
