Cubic orders Barco iQ projection systems for firearms training system

Orlando – Cubic Simulation Systems placed a $1,434,501 order for Barco iQTM R350 projection systems.

“Cubic has once again chosen Barco's iQ Series projectors for their firearms training systems,” said Phil Laney, Market Development Manager for Barco Simulation. “The iQ offers superior performance, providing a wide range of resolutions and brightness levels to satisfy any firearms training requirement in a reasonably priced, reliable, rugged package."

The iQTM R350 projection systems are an important part of Cubic’s Engagement Skills Trainer 2000 (EST 2000). Every individual that undergoes Army basic training must qualify on the EST 2000, the Army's only validated marksmanship trainer that can replicate every type of small arm that the Army uses today.

But the EST 2000 is not just for individual marksmanship training. It is also used for collective training (squad tactics) and decision-making skills. Military police trainees, for example, are exposed to various scenarios where they must decide whether to shoot or not. In addition, the system replicates 14 different terrains and simulates all types of weather.
Barco’s iQ R350 is an extremely versatile projection system capable of a variety of configurations. The iQ series projection system displays realistic battlefield environments in mobile and fixed theaters. The image on the screen can be sized, moved, and resized to perfectly fit any application. The projection system fills the screen and can project from the floor in front of the firing line, or it can be ceiling mounted behind the firing line.

Operators can easily save and instantly recall settings for different training scenarios. The iQ’s picture-in-picture capability enables users to simultaneously display several windows for after-action reviews or enables an additional zoom-in on the target area. Offering extreme optical lens shift capability, a broad range of quality lenses, and maximized light efficiency and reliability, the Barco iQ R350 projection system is an intelligent, cost-effective solution for firearm training needs.
