SAN DIEGO, Calif., (PRWEB) September 16, 2015 -- Cubic Global Defense (CGD), a business unit of Cubic Corporation (NYSE: CUB), today announced its successful participation in the recent Talisman Sabre exercise. Talisman Sabre is a biennial military exercise that trains Australian and U.S. forces to improve combat readiness and interoperability on a variety of missions from conventional conflict to peacekeeping and humanitarian assistance.
Talisman Sabre is one of the world’s largest exercises and it illustrates the importance of the Australian and U.S. alliance. During this sixth iteration, more than 29,000 Americans and Australians participated in the field training involving 21 ships, including the U.S. Navy aircraft carrier USS George Washington (CVN 73) and more than 200 aircraft.
Cubic has participated in Talisman Sabre planning and execution over the years, and even more so this year – by actively being involved in every planning event, training site and control location. In addition, for the first time in Talisman Sabre history, Korea Battle Simulation Center (KBSC) led the constructive training effort as the simulation provider, distributing the Joint, Live, Virtual, Constructive (JLVC) federation to all participants. Cubic, who holds the KBSC operations contract, was the prime contributor to the effort.
“In supporting this and future Talisman Sabre exercises, Cubic’s collective body of experience and defense knowledge will only grow more valuable to our customers as we continuously make an effort to improve combat readiness for our forces,” said Bill Toti, president of Cubic Global Defense. “Beyond supporting the customer, fellow Cubic members from Australia and the U.S. are making a substantive contribution to strengthening the most enduring alliance in the Pac-Rim region.”
Cubic personnel from various Pac-Rim command centers including Australian Headquarters Joint Operations Command as well as U.S. Pacific Command, U.S. Pacific Fleet Headquarters, Pacific Warfighting Center and Korean Battle Simulation Center played a significant role in facilitating both nations’ efforts in planning and executing this enormous endeavor. The exercise was conducted from multiple locations during the month of July and by a combined exercise control group of approximately 2,500 personnel, coordinated from Hawaii and spanning 13 time zones.
