Cubic Defence Australia announced that it has been awarded up to 14-year contract to support the Australian Army’s Combat Training Centre Live Instrumentation Simulation, Range Instrumentation, and Information System (CTC-LIS). Cubic Defence Australia has secured a $227.78m (A$319.8m) contract to continue delivering training support to the Australian Army’s combat training centre. The Combat Training Centre enables the Australian military’s largest, most advanced, and potent teams to enhance their competitive advantage by empowering them to reach their potential; and the CTC-LIS provides the technology basis to achieve this mission. The system is based at Lavarack Barracks in Townsville and deploys regularly around the country to training events, including in some of the most remote training areas in Australia. The CTC-LIS investment highlights the importance that the Australian Army places on Joint Land Force collective training.
“As the CTC-LIS is based in North Queensland, this contract will support the continued development of Systems Integration and Test capability in Australia, which is a Sovereign Industrial Capability priority, and provides further opportunities to support international programs,” said Mark Horn, director of strategic development, Cubic Defence Australia.
“The CTC-LIS was originally designed and delivered by our Cubic team in New Zealand and since that time, the system has continually evolved. Today, the CTC-LIS is almost entirely sovereign Australian capability. Our Australian Industry Team supporting the CTC-LIS is at the forefront of Live Training capability globally, and they are often called upon to provide expertise to support Cubic’s international programs,” said Miles Macdonald, director of operations Oceania, Cubic Defence Australia.
