Cubic Global Defense (CGD) has secured a contract from the US Air Force (USAF) to support the Air Force research laboratory (AFRL) human-centred intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance division.

Cubic received the initial contract for this project in January this year. This latest $9.9m additional contract will raise the total value of the contract to $19.8m.

As part of this new development, Cubic will continue offering solutions to improve the USAF’s chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) counter proliferation and survivability missions program.

"Finding advanced solutions and procedures in CBRN counter proliferation for optimal response and recovery is an important mission for our military partners and for Cubic."

Cubic Global Defense Defence and Intel Services senior vice-president Chris Bellios said: "With the successful efforts of the initial investment, the increase in the contract ceiling is a testament to Cubic’s superior service and ongoing partnership with the US Air Force.

"Finding advanced solutions and procedures in CBRN counter proliferation for optimal response and recovery is an important mission for our military partners and for Cubic."

Under the initial five-year contract, which was awarded under an AFRL Broad Agency Announcement, Cubic will be responsible to research, test, evaluate and analyse short and long-term CBRN technologies at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio.

In addition, the company will provide its service to bases in San Diego, California; MacDill Air Force Base, Florida; and Camp Smith, Hawaii, US.

In May, Cubic Global Defense received a contract to support the USAF Sustainment Center to enable secure communications between rescue forces and isolated persons during civil and combat search-and-rescue (CSAR) missions.

Under this $1.7m contract from Support Systems Associates (SSAI), Cubic will deliver the second generation of lightweight airborne recovery system (LARS) specifically for the HC-130J aircraft.
