Cubic Applications Inc. of San Diego is $78.2 million richer in the wake of its latest defense contract involving the Army’s Joint Readiness Training Center at Fort Polk, Louisiana.

The unit of Cubic Corp. on Friday was awarded a contract to provide what the Defense Department calls “theatre-specific combat training, mission rehearsal training, foreign security training team training and other combat forces training to prepare units for combat operations or deployment to combat theatre of operations.”

At the same time, the Army said, “operations and maintenance (Army) fiscal 2014 funds in the amount of $44,043,547 and fiscal 2014 other procurement funds in the amount of $5,928,009 were obligated.”

Cubic’s work at Fort Polk, Louisiana, is expected to be done June 30, 2015.

Also Friday, the Pentagon announced an $8.5 million Navy contract was awarded Northrop Grumman Systems Corp., Integrated Systems Sector, of San Diego for the extension of engineering and software sustainment services in support of the Vertical Take-off and Landing Tactical Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Fire Scout MQ-8B.

Work will be performed in San Diego, and is expected to be completed in November 2014.
