Cubic Global Defense (CGD), a business unit of San Diego, CA-based Cubic Corporation,  announced on August 17 the additional award of $9.9 million to the initial contract awarded by the U.S. Air Force in January 2015 to support the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) Human-Centered Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Division.

Under the award now totaling $19.8 million, Cubic will continue to provide solutions to enhance the Air Force’s Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) counter proliferation and survivability missions program.
