SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 22, 2011) - Cubic Defense Applications, the defense systems business unit of Cubic Corporation (NYSE: CUB), has been awarded a $49 million indefinite delivery type contract from the U.S. Marine Corps Systems Command to supply an advanced Instrumented-Tactical Engagement Simulation System (I-TESS II).

This system will be used in Marine force-on-force and force-on-target training exercises, including indoor and outdoor military operations in urban terrain (MOUT) training, at multiple locations in the U.S. and abroad.

ITESS II is a fully integrated ground combat training system based on the company's latest laser-based wireless instrumentation products.
