The Cubic Corporation Receives a Contract for the F-35 Lightning II

(San Diego, CA) A 5th generation jet fighter aircraft is defined by the following specifications; an all aspect stealth design, a low probability of intercept radar (LPIR), a high performance airframe, advanced avionics, a highly integrated computer system that is capable of networking with other elements and a highly integrated computer system that is capable of networking inside of the battle space for an increased situational awareness.  The Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II, is indeed, a 5th generation jet fighter aircraft.  Additionally; it is a family of single seat, single engine, all weather stealth aircraft and a family of multiple role jet fighters.  This family is made up of the F-35A, the F-35B and the F-35C.  Recently, the Cubic Corporation announced that, it will perform a role in the Joint Strike Fighter (J.S.F.) Program.  Specifically, the aforementioned U.S. defense contractor revealed that, it has received a contract for a video data link solution for the F-35 Lightning II.  The contract is with Lockheed Martin, and, the video data link solution is considered to be mission critical.  This contract will be executed, through, Cubic Mission Solutions.

          Cubic Mission Solutions, a business division of the Cubic Corporation, will be the official provider of the Cubic Video Data Link (V.D.L.).  For the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II, the Cubic V.D.L. will improve the combat capabilities.  Additionally, the Cubic V.D.L. is now considered to be essential, to the modernization, of the Joint Strike Fighter (J.S.F.) Program.  However and returning to, the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II’s family of jet fighters, the aforementioned are defined in the following way.  The F-35A, is a conventional takeoff and landing jet fighter aircraft.  Additionally, the term CTOL variant, can also be used.  The F-35B, is a short takeoff and vertical landing jet fighter aircraft.  Additionally, the term STOVL variant, can also be used.  The F-35C, is an aircraft carrier based catapult assisted takeoff jet fighter aircraft.  Additionally, the term CATOBAR variant, can also be used.  Incidentally, the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II first flew on, December 15th, 2006.  In July of the year 2015, the United States Marine Corps, assembled its first squadron of F-35B jet fighters.  In August of the year 2016, the United States Air Force, assembled its first squadron of F-35A jet fighters.  In February of the year 2018, the United States Navy, assembled its first squadron of F-35C jet fighters.  Interestingly enough, the F-35 made its official combat d├ębut with the Israeli Air Force.  This occurred, in the year 2018.

          Returning to; the Cubic V.D.L., the aforementioned is a technology solution that, enables the F-35 Lightning II to do the following.  What is enabled is the ability to transmit and receive, sensor signals and metadata.  The latter, is to and from ground and/or airborne units.  Specifically, it is a secured and mission enhancing system.  This system easily fits inside the allocated communications, navigation and identification (C.N.I.) subsystem volume.  The Cubic V.D.L.’s software, is a radio based video data link (V.D.L.) technology solution.  Additionally, this software is capable of high performance processing.  The high performance processing, is to be able to, support live video enhancements.  This idea is also designed to minimize the size, weight, power and overall cooling (S.W.A.P.-C.).

          To end, the Cubic Corporation (NYSE:  CUB) did release press statements.  James Parys is the Program Director at Cubic Mission Solutions.  Through a press statement, Mr. Parys said the following.  “With our proven track record of managing a program from development through fielding, along with the proven performance of our software-defined radio products including the Nano Multi-band Miniature Transceiver, we are confident in our ability to deliver a low-risk, cost-effective Video Data Link solution with built-in life cycle enhancements.”  Mike Twyman is the President of Cubic Mission Solutions.  Through a press statement, Mr. Twyman said the following.  “We are very pleased to partner with Lockheed Martin to provide a secure video data link capability for the F-35.  Our team of protected communications experts have decades of experience supplying common data link systems and we look forward to partnering on this critical program.”  As previously stated, the Cubic Corporation recently announced that, it will perform a role in the Joint Strike Fighter (J.S.F.) Program.  Specifically, the aforementioned U.S. defense contractor revealed that, it has received a contract for a video data link solution for the F-35 Lightning II.  The contract is with Lockheed Martin, and, the video data link solution is considered to be mission critical.  Lastly, this contract will be executed, through, Cubic Mission Solutions.
