Cubic Corporation (NYSE: CUB) today announced that its subsidiary GATR Technologies (GATR), which operates within the Cubic Global Defense (CGD) business unit, was awarded an engineering services order valued in excess of $5 million to support the U.S. Army’s Transportable Tactical Command Communications (T2C2) program, under its Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR), Phase III Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract. The services award will enable GATR to integrate and test the T2C2 inflatable satellite antenna terminals with software systems in preparation for Product Verification Testing, Logistics Demonstration and Operational Test.
In addition to the services award, GATR delivered the initial ten inflatable satellite antenna terminals to the Project Manager Warfighter Information Network–Tactical (PM WIN-T) in support of the T2C2 program for more than $3.2 million. This first order for five small- and five medium-sized terminals is part of the Army’s Program of Record for next-generation, early-entry communications and will be utilized for testing. If the government exercises all full rate production purchase orders, the T2C2 effort could bring more than 780 GATR terminals to the field.
“GATR Technologies has worked closely with the U.S. Army to develop a successful satellite communications program with its unique and portable, inflatable satellite terminals,” said Mike Twyman, executive vice president of communications, intelligence and surveillance systems, Cubic Global Defense. “This award demonstrates the Army’s commitment to innovative C4ISR technologies that support and expand the warfighter’s capabilities in remote locations.”
The T2C2 program provides agile voice and data communications in the early phases of joint operations, and in later operational phases it provides communications at the tactical edge.
