Cubic Receives $25 Million Order From Middle Eastern Nation to Supply Transportable Combat Training Center Capability

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - May 30, 2007) - Cubic Defense Applications, the defense segment of Cubic Corporation (AMEX: CUB), has received a contract worth more than $25 million to supply its transportable live training capability to a Middle Eastern customer.

"This represents the first direct commercial sale of our transportable Combat Training Center capability to U.S. allies in the Gulf region," said John Naff, Cubic's vice president of Business Development for the Middle East. "Cubic will be delivering a scalable system that offers the potential of transforming into a national training center, when the requirement emerges."

Within two years, Cubic will deliver a version of its U.S. Army Initial - Homestation Instrumentation Training System (I-HITS), a self-contained training package that can be configured for mobile, deployable or fixed applications. The flexible, user-friendly system can be used to train ground units from squad through brigade on any mission, from force-on-force or urban training, to joint or combined arms exercises. It offers a mobile exercise control facility and multimedia debriefing theater, communications relays, and three-dimensional multimedia display systems for tracking players as they train, or analyzing their performance during after-action reviews.

For player instrumentation during training exercises, Cubic will provide more than 1,000 MILES Individual Weapon Systems. The lightweight, compact MILES IWS will be used to instrument dismounted infantry during training exercises at two different training sites. It features laser-based small arms transmitters that are mounted to actual weapons, helmet halos and harnesses equipped with detectors, communications radios and player units that record weapons actions during exercises.

Cubic will also supply vehicle kits to equip different vehicle types.

Cubic Defense Applications (CDA), one of Cubic Corporation's two major segments, is a world leader in realistic combat training systems, mission support services and defense electronics. The corporation's other major segment, Cubic Transportation Systems, designs and manufactures automatic fare collection systems for public mass transit authorities.
