Cubic said today it is consolidating its defense business segments and reshaping its defense leadership.

The company said it is combining its mission solutions business with its global defense unit to create a new segment called Cubic Mission and Performance Solutions.

“This new segment will continue to deliver technology-driven, market-leading solutions to Command, Control, Communication, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) and training customers worldwide to improve our customers’ effectiveness and operational readiness,” the company said.

The move is intended to leverage common technologies and cut costs while bolstering efficiency, according to Cubic.

The company said the new segment will be led by Michael Knowles, who has headed the global defense unit since 2018. He joined Cubic in 2014 after serving as an executive at Rockwell Collins and Lockheed Martin.

Michael Twyman, who led the mission solutions business, will depart the company, Cubic said.
