SAN DIEGO, 2 August 2006. The defense segment of Cubic Corporation has delivered the U.S. Army's first Initial Homestation Instrumentation Training System (I-HITS) to the Eighth U.S. Army at Camp Casey, Korea.

I-HITS provides high-fidelity training capabilities, including battle tracking, data collection, and after-action reviews, without the need for a fixed infrastructure. A self-contained package, I-HITS can be deployed to support force-on-force, force-on-target, and joint and combined arms training.

Cubic Defense Applications is delivering I-HITS to U.S. and allied forces under a five-year contract awarded in 2005 from the U.S. Army's PEO-STRI. The contract is potentially worth $71.7 million if all options are exercised.

The I-HITS configuration delivered to Camp Casey supports force-on-force engagement training for the U.S. Army's mechanized/armor infantry company.

The Camp Casey instrumentation supports training for dismounted infantry, vehicles, and observer/controllers -- and it is expandable to include more than 2,000 live players and 8,000 virtual and constructive entities. It also provides training for urban operations.

Future upgrades include the integration of Test and Training Enabling Architecture, or TENA, to support emerging live-virtual-constructive exercises and joint operations. Other enhancements include the addition of live force-on-target training and remote scenario planning and rehearsal.
