Cubic Defense Systems has received a contract to supply its P5 combat training system (P5CTS) to the Royal Moroccan Air Force.


Under the terms of the $5m contract, awarded by the US Air Force (USAF), the company will supply P5CTS system for use by Moroccan pilots who fly the recently-delivered F-16 Fighting Falcon aircraft.


With the contract, Morocco joins the US Air Force, Navy, and Marine Corps, along with a number of international air forces, in using the P5CTS to support high-fidelity, TOPGUN-style live and post-mission training.


Cubic Defense Systems president Dave Schmitz said the contract is a demonstration of the company's commitment to the air combat readiness of one of the US' allies.


"Cubic is dedicated to provide and develop best-in-class, cost-effective, advanced flight training for pilot mission readiness," Schmitz said.


"All foreign air forces that fly fighter or attack jets or conduct joint exercises and training with the US should have a P5 system to maximise their training capabilities."


Cubic will be the prime contractor responsible for performance in all areas of systems engineering, and for development / integration / installation of the ground instrumentation subsystem.


The company has also subcontracted DRS Training & Control Systems for design, development, production and aircraft integration of the P5CTS airborne instrumentation subsystem.


The P5 combat trainer is designed to provide real-time training for air-to-air, air-to-ground and surface-to-air combat missions by recording mission data, relay time, space and positioning information between participating aircraft during training sorties.


Key components of the fifth-generation system include GPS-enabled aircraft-mounted airborne instrumentation packages and ground stations, which will help aircrew to conduct, monitor and control air combat training and post-flight debriefing in addition to the flexibility to carry out anywhere, anytime training capability.
