San Diego, Calif. (PRWEB) December 04, 2014
Cubic Corporation (NYSE: CUB) announced today that it was awarded Best Tutorial at the 2014 Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC). I/ITSEC is the world’s largest professional modeling, simulation and training conference. Cubic was honored among a field of representatives from government, industry and academia for demonstrating excellence in its entry “Bridging the Gap: How to Build Effective Game-based Training.” The selection of the Best Tutorial represents the culmination of the conference.
Cubic’s tutorial describes how to leverage the vitality of commercial games in serious game-based training to create a more effective learning experience. Cubic’s virtual reality courseware is being developed to help underpin the effectiveness of the U.S. Navy’s new Littoral Combat Ships (LCS) once they are deployed on operations and to enhance the training of the sailors who serve on them. Designed from scratch, the innovative solution fully leverages the latest advances in simulation and learning technology. Studies estimate a 40 percent increase in retention of knowledge by using the experiential learning method found in Cubic’s technologies, as compared to the traditional courseware model that focuses on memorization.
“This award is a validation of Cubic’s commitment to creating exceptional training experiences and putting our customers first. We continually strive to deliver innovative, best-in-class solutions and the highest degree of service possible,” said Bill Rebarick, general manager of Cubic Advanced Learning Solutions. “Cubic’s game-based virtual reality courseware is an example of how the use of simulation technology is offering efficiencies and improvements in today’s military training.”
