SAN DIEGO (PRWEB) February 15, 2016
Cubic Global Defense (CGD), a business unit of Cubic Corporation (NYSE: CUB), today announced that retired Navy Vice Admiral David Buss, senior vice president and deputy president, will moderate a panel consisting of key U.S. Navy Marine Corps leaders at WEST 2016, taking place at the San Diego Convention Center from February 17 – 19. Co-sponsored by the AFCEA International and the U.S. Naval Institute, WEST is a premier naval conference and exposition on the U.S. west coast bringing together military and industry leaders to discuss key topics and technologies that may impact the warfighter and future operations of sea services.
Buss joined Cubic in June 2015 following a career in the U.S. Navy that spanned more than 36 years including two years as Commander, Naval Air Forces (the Navy’s “Air Boss”). Among other responsibilities, Buss leads the business strategy for Cubic’s live, virtual and constructive (LVC) training for combined air, land and naval forces.
Buss will moderate a panel on effectively carrying out the nation’s maritime strategy with various Flag and General Officers who oversee the manning, training and outfitting of Navy and Marine Corps forces deploying primarily to the western Pacific Ocean and Middle East.
