Cubic Global Tracking Solutions Supports DoD With Generation II Satellite Enabled Tracking & Intrusion Detection Devices

Container Tracking & Monitoring Solution Provides Logistics Intelligence and Intrusion Detection

VIENNA, VA–(Marketwire – September 12, 2011) – Cubic Global Tracking Solutions, the asset visibility solutions provider of Cubic Corporation (NYSE: CUB), is tracking and monitoring containers for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) with Generation II Satellite Enabled Tracking & Intrusion Detection (GEN II SETID) tags.

Cubic’s Container Tracking & Monitoring Solution employs Cubic’s Global Sentinel devices, which the DoD refers to as GEN II SETID tags. These devices provide situational awareness, actionable logistics intelligence, intrusion detection and theft deterrence along with enhanced force protection for the DoD.

“With Cubic’s Container Tracking & Monitoring Solution, our goal is to allow the DoD to have complete visibility of assets arriving in theater, cut down on theft and ultimately increase security,” stated Mary Ann Wagner, President of Cubic Global Tracking Solutions. “Cubic provides satellite tracking and intrusion detection in one device, along with sensors for heat, humidity, light, motion and power management — and offers a battery life of up to three years. This is unparalleled in the marketplace.”

Cubic’s Container Tracking & Monitoring Solution allows the DoD to buy a service versus buying a tag. This service can be tailored to the customer’s requirements to include installation, tracking/monitoring and device removal. This allows the DoD to buy the service on demand.

At the end of August, the first shipment of containers equipped with Cubic’s solution arrived from both east coast and west coast DoD distribution centers into Afghanistan, without incident. “Our goal is to build upon the relationship with the DoD and the carriers in order to continue to increase the safety and security of containers going into theater,” stated Wagner.

Cubic Global Tracking Solutions will be in Booth R at the National Defense Transportation Association Annual Conference in Phoenix, Arizona, from 12-15 September.

Cubic Global Tracking Solutions’ Global Sentinel(TM) System Receives Iridium Certification — Press Release

Cubic Global Tracking Solutions’ Global Sentinel(TM) System Receives Iridium Certification

Continuous Global Coverage by Employing Iridium 9602 Short-Burst-Data Transceiver in 5th Generation Global Sentinel Asset Tracking Device

VIENNA, VA–(Marketwire – June 13, 2011) –

Cubic Global Tracking

Cubic Global Tracking Solutions, the asset visibility solutions provider of Cubic Corporation (NYSE: CUB), today announced it has received certification from Iridium Communications, Inc. for the Global Sentinel™ System.

The Global Sentinel™ System tracks and monitors valuable high-risk assets across an organization’s enterprise through an infrastructure free system that provides two-way, redundant encrypted communications. The system provides up to 2,000 unique geo-zones for each device to control precise reporting rules along the supply chain. It can monitor asset conditions including temperature, humidity, light sensing, motion and container door status.

“As an Iridium partner for the past seven years, we’ve worked closely to integrate the Iridium 9602 transceiver into Cubic’s fifth generation of products,” said Mary Ann Wagner, president of Cubic Global Tracking Solutions. “Our partnership with Iridium is essential to the services we provide our customers because we rely on Iridium to provide real-time low latency reporting on our customers’ assets in areas where other modes of communication are unavailable. This capability allows us to have continuous global coverage for reliable secure reporting of asset position, status and event alerts. This is essential because of the critical nature of the assets we are tracking and monitoring for our Department of Defense and commercial customers.”

“The Iridium 9602 is ideal for a growing range of applications, including remote and personal location tracking, and monitoring and tracking of assets and equipment for greater efficiency,” said Greg Ewert, executive vice president, Global Distribution Channels for Iridium. “As the world’s farthest-reaching network, together with our partners, we are enabling innovation through new types of Iridium 9602-based machine-to-machine (M2M) solutions that provide consistent, reliable communications across the globe.”

To provide real-time asset tracking worldwide, Cubic’s Global Sentinel™ System relies on a variety of transmission links to communicate the positioning and status of an asset. Based on the location of the asset, the system selects whichever link is the most cost-effective for data transmission. This includes wireless mesh networking, cellular or the ubiquitous global two-way coverage of the 66-satellite Iridium constellation. Often, the Global Sentinel™ System relies on the Iridium network because it eliminates blind spots when other routing methods are not available for use, due to the asset being out of range of coverage.

Cubic Global Tracking Solutions provides uninterrupted tracking and monitoring and is an international provider of defense and commercial asset visibility solutions used by the Department of Defense for container tracking, yard management and shipment monitoring in the Middle East and Southwest Asia.
