Cubic Mission and Performance Solutions (CMPS) business division has completed the demonstration of its Simplified, Planning, Execution, Analysis, Reconstruction (SPEAR) software suite’s operational capabilities.

SPEAR is a follow-on solution for Cubic’s Individual Combat Aircrew Display System (ICADS), which has been the live monitor and debrief system of the combat airforces for two decades.

It was used at the US Air Force’s (USAF) Checkered Flag 21-1 exercise.

During the exercise, the aircrew were deployed to Tyndall Air Force Base (AFB) to carry out training with the aircrew from the base and other Gulf Coast bases.

Joint and coalition aircrew from the USAF, the US Navy (USN) and the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) were a part of the Checkered Flag exercise.

The aircrew flew fifth and fourth-generation fighters, posing as blue forces and adversaries.

CMPS president Mike Knowles said: “Building on our extensive multi-domain experience, Cubic now also delivers to the warfighter a Common Data Model (CDM) for multi-domain data, in a game-changing common operational picture.

“For the entire exercise, every Checkered Flag 21-1 mission used SPEAR for both live monitoring and debrief.”

SPEAR provided technical and operational ease to the site administrators and the Range Training Officers (RTOs) via a streamlined user experience.

This is said to have allowed more than 75 aircraft to train and fight simultaneously. The hardware was installed in one day, which showcases the set-up and networking ease.

CMPS LVC Training vice-president and general manager Jonas Furukrona said: “As demonstrated by results at Checkered Flag and Red Flag, we are seeing increased demand for the ability to effectively assess and adjudicate kinetic and non-kinetic effects, especially when we look at the importance of multi-domain operations.

“We have already secured a sale to a coalition partner for this capability and believe SPEAR will set a new standard in ensuring operator readiness.”
