Cubic Defense Applications, a defense segment of Cubic Corporation, has delivered an Air Combat Maneuvering Instrumentation system to the Japanese Air Self-Defense Force.
The ACMI system consists of ‘rangeless’ air combat training pods and PC-based debrief software that allows training without a fixed infrastructure. The system will soon be operational at Komatsu Air Base in central Japan.
The Cubic system is composed of wing-mounted instrumentation pods which record simulated weapons actions that can be reviewed in real time via a data link to a ground-based display system, or incorporated into after-action reviews. The new system also includes Cubic’s Individual Combat Aircrew Display System, or ICADS, used in nine nations throughout the world for Air Combat Maneuvering Instrumentation (ACMI) debriefs.
Philip Fisch, senior director of business development for air ranges at Cubic Defense Applications, said: Cubic is extremely pleased to be supporting the training requirements of the Japanese Air Self-Defense Force. We thank the Japanese government for the opportunity to take part in providing this critical training capability.
