Cubic Awarded US Naval Air Systems Command Contract for KnightLink Systems

Cubic Defense has secured an Indefinite-Delivery/Indefinite-Quantity (IDIQ) contract to maintain, upgrade and support deployment of the Full Motion Video (FMV) System, known as KnightLink, for the U.S. Naval Air Systems Command’s (NAVAIR) MH-60 Sierra (MH-60S) utility maritime helicopter fleet. The KnightLink software provides a wide range of capabilities and video support including operational, vendor, flight test, laboratory aid and maintenance.

The KnightLink hardware includes the KnightLink Weapons Replaceable Assemblies (WRAs) and applicable cabling, as well as the procurement of additional hardware, interim sparing and Peculiar Ground Support Equipment (PGSE) to support fleet introduction. The contract will provide several categories of deliveries, including software enhancements, hardware reinforcement and general maintenance. The sustainment of the FMV system and overall product improvement will lead to enhanced operations and fleet operability. KnightLink systems are already being developed and delivered from Cubic’s Huntsville, Alabama site.

“The KnightLink system for the MH-60S is a testament to the continued success of our low-rate production program and how the system enables mission capability at the highest level, thanks to robust hardware advancements that provide improved FMV acquisition and dissemination. Our mission is to support and empower the warfighter with state-of-the-art tools to maintain vital communications,” said Russ Marsh, Vice President and General Manager of Secure Communications, Cubic Defense.
