Cubic Awarded Prime Seat on U.S. Army OPTARSS II ID/IQ Contract

Multiple Large and Small Businesses Will Compete for as Much $2.5 Billion in Task Orders

COLUMBUS, GA--(Marketwire - Apr 14, 2011) - The Mission Support Services segment of Cubic Corporation (NYSE: CUB), is one of 13 large businesses to receive a substantial indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) contract from the U.S. Army to support the OPTARSS II (Operations, Planning, Training and Resource Support Services) program. Managed by the U.S. Forces Command (FORSCOM), OPTARSS II has a five-year term and a ceiling value of $2.5 billion. With its prime seat on the ID/IQ, Cubic will have the opportunity to bid for numerous task orders. The company also expects to receive work as a subcontractor on several other large and small-business teams that have won awards.

The U.S. Army's Mission and Installation Contracting Command-Center McPherson (MICC-C McPherson) in Georgia awarded the OPTARSS II contract vehicle, which all Army Contracting Command Centers can use to contract for services throughout the continental United States and overseas.

Cubic's Omega Training Division, based in Columbus, Georgia, led the competitive capture effort for Cubic. Cubic is a major provider of support services to the U.S. Army, and leveraged its past successes in achieving the OPTARSS II win.

"Cubic was awarded this contract because of our strong capabilities in operations, training and exercises, and leader development, coupled with the right team of small business partners," said Glenn Marsh, Vice President and General Manager for the Omega Training Division of Cubic Applications, Inc. "OPTARSS II offers Cubic the opportunity to provide innovative training solutions and critical operational support to warfighters. We are extremely proud to have been selected for this contract vehicle and look forward to competing for the many opportunities with our OPTARSS II team."
