Cubic Corporation announced this week that its Cubic Mission Solutions (CMS) business division was awarded a follow-on, single-award contract from United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM). The contract is for delivery of Ground Antenna Transmit and Receive (GATR) inflatable satellite communications (SATCOM) terminals and baseband communications equipment in support of Special Operations Forces (SOF) communications requirements. The contract has a ceiling of $172 million.

“Cubic is an established and trusted partner for USSOCOM, providing SOF with leading-edge capabilities that support our customer’s expeditionary and tactical needs,” Mike Twyman, the president of Cubic Missions Solutions, said. “We are proud to continue our partnership with USSOCOM; this strategic opportunity allows us to continue providing reliable solutions for SOF missions in remote and forward-deployed situations.”

The contract consists of five one-year ordering periods for the procurement of Cubic’s 1.2-meter and 2.4-meter GATR inflatable satellite communications terminals.

Cubic’s technology not only enables the movement of data, but it also allows for the pre-processing of data and rapid sharing of the processed information. This is essential to the Hyper Enabled Operator and allows for more informed and timely decision making.
