Cubic Corporation (NYSE: CUB) announced today that its One Shot technology received the Most Innovative New Product (MIP) Award in the aerospace and security technologies category at the 2013 CONNECT MIP Awards that took place at an awards ceremony on Dec. 6. In its 26th year, the annual awards program continues its tradition of honoring San Diego’s leaders of innovation and groundbreaking new products launched in the last year.
Cubic’s One Shot technology enables military marksman to hit targets at extreme ranges with only one rifle shot.

One Shot also provides an offset aim point and an error circle in the user-selected sight. This field-deployable system is mounted on the rifle or the spotter-scope.
