SAN DIEGO – March 9, 2017 – Cubic Global Defense (CGD), a business unit of Cubic Corporation (NYSE: CUB), today announced James T. Blake, Ph.D., senior vice president of integrated training solutions, will be participating in a panel to discuss training and technology prerequisite for success in multi-domain battle at the Association of the United States Army’s (AUSA) Global Force Symposium and Exposition in Huntsville, Alabama from March 13 – 15. In addition, Cubic’s GATR Technologies, which operates under Cubic Mission Solutions (CMS), will showcase their line of portable, inflatable satellite communications (SATCOM) antennas at the event.
“Success in a multi-domain battle will require an unprecedented level of situational awareness across our formations. Leveraging our current training enablers at Homestations and focusing on performance-based training are essential for achieving and maintaining appropriate readiness levels,” said Blake. “I look forward to addressing the needed modifications to training, technology and materiel for the Army with my military colleagues.”
At the event, Blake will participate in the following panel:
