In addition, Cubic will assist in increasing knowledge of best practices and information to enhance U.S. and international civil-military preparedness for disaster management and humanitarian assistance.
“Cubic is proud to partner with USPACOM and its work through the CFE-DM, supporting real-time operational commitments to the nations and allied partners in the Asia-Pacific region,” said Dave Buss, president of Cubic Global Defense. “When coupled with our work in training and exercise management in the PACOM Theater, this task order will allow us to strengthen our offerings of innovative, end-to-end solutions and build partner capacity in the Pacific.”
CFE-DM was established to bridge the understanding between civil and military humanitarian responders as well as to provide a Department of Defense platform for building disaster management, humanitarian assistance awareness and expertise among U.S. forces and partner nations in the Indo-Asia-Pacific. With more than 20 years of support and experience within USPACOM, Cubic continues to provide expertise in the areas of joint exercise support, modeling and simulation, software development, joint readiness, innovation, energy security and nation building.
