26 Jun 02. The Defense Applications group of Cubic Corp. (AMEX:CUB – News), along with its U.K. partner, Ultra Electronics Ltd., completed two months ahead of schedule the second phase of its contract to incorporate sophisticated broadcast data link technology into the United Kingdom’s Airborne Stand-Off Radar (ASTOR) System.

and 10 years of in-service support beginning in early 2004. Key to meeting this
milestone was Cubic’s successful transfer of its surveillance and control data

Cubic’s specifications in the U.K.
