Cubic Corporation’s Cubic Mission and Performance Solutions (CMPS) division has completed demonstrations of its M252 81-mm instrumented mortar system at Fort Hood that support Soldier Touch Point 3. 

The system, developed in partnership with General Dynamics Mission Systems, will enable soldiers to gather iterative performance feedback and robust data to meet and refine requirements, providing state-of-the art technology for emulated munition capabilities.

“As emerging threats increase the complexity of the mission, proper training for Soldiers becomes a greater priority. Our solutions continue to modernize training and enhance situational awareness for the warfighter,” said Jonas Furukrona, vice president and general manager of CMPS’ Live, Virtual and Constructive (LVC) Training. “M252 81-mm technology answers the call at command level as well as on the ground.”

The M252 81-mm solution is an indirect fire training system that uses geo-pairing to deliver accurate ballistic munition trajectories and terminal effects during live, force-on-force training exercises. 

According to CMPS, the system will enable soldiers to gather iterative performance feedback and robust data collection to meet and refine requirements. The M252 81-mm solution results in a realistic training environment that forges soldiers into the battle-capable fighting force of the future. The technology produces next-level data gathering and enhanced fighting capabilities.
