Cubic Global Tracking Solutions, the asset management and visibility solutions provider of San Diego-based Cubic Corp. (NYSE: CUB), has been awarded three U.S. Army and GSA Schedule orders totaling approximately $4.8 million to expand its wireless mesh asset tracking technology to two U.S. bases in Afghanistan.
Cubic will deploy thousands of Mesh Asset Tags (MATs) and its Web-based Device Management Center (DMC) asset visibility system to bases near Kandahar and Bagram, where the technology will be used to track and process equipment being redeployed or returned home in the drawdown of troops from Afghanistan.
Cubic is delivering the mesh network technology to the U.S. Army Logistics Innovation Agency and Army Sustainment Command as a subcontractor to ARINC Inc. on the Next Generation Wireless Communications (NGWC) contract, and the Army Mobility Asset Tracking System (AMATS) program.
Currently being used for yard management of vehicles at three bases in Kuwait, the solution consists of small, battery operated mesh tags with built-in GPS receivers that are attached to vehicles and linked wirelessly with one another to form a secure data communications network. Cubic's asset visibility system enables logistics personnel to determine the precise location of any military vehicle by searching the DMC database.
