Cubic Global Defense has been awarded an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract worth more than $99 million to support the Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division’s (NAWCTSD) Surface Training Immersive Gaming and Simulations (STIGS) effort and the development, delivery and total life cycle support of a new virtual environment training system. This system will be one of the key pillars under the US Navy’s Surface Training Advanced Virtual Environment (STAVE) program, bringing courseware and simulator training systems into a Family of Trainers to support surface training at the point of need.

Mike Knowles, president of Cubic Global Defense commented, “Our solution will provide the baseline for a fully blended instructional training approach that seamlessly supports all levels of Surface Fleet Training.”

This contract will also allow Cubic to deliver upgrades and modifications to previously delivered LCS courseware, in addition to new capabilities for LCS and other ships. Work for the STIGS program will be performed in Orlando, Florida and is expected to be complete by July 2025.
