Founded and headquartered in San Diego, CA since 1951, Cubic is the parent company of three major business segments. Cubic's businesses are primarily engaged in the design, development, manufacture, integration, and sustainment of high technology systems, products, and services for government and commercial customers. With fiscal year 2011 sales of $1.285 billion, Cubic employs nearly 7,800 people worldwide. Cubic is a global leader in defense, and transportation systems and services, and is an emerging supplier of smart card and RFID solutions. Operating segments include:

Mission Support Services -an industry leader in providing comprehensive support services for all echelons of national militaries and security forces in the U.S. and allied nations.

Cubic Defense Applications -the leading provider of live air and ground combat training systems worldwide, a key supplier of virtual and immersive training systems, communications and electronics products, and an emerging provider of cyber technologies and global tracking solutions for commercial and national military customers.

Cubic Transportation Systems -the leading provider of revenue collection management systems and services worldwide. Cubic has provided products, systems and services in nearly 60 nations. Cubic Transportation Systems' employees work from more than 130 locations in approximately 20 nations.

In December of 2010, Cubic acquired the Abraxas Corporation for $124 million in cash. The purchase did not include the software products TrapWire or Ntrepid. These products were spun off in 2007 as part of the Abraxas Applications Corporation under former CEO and President Richard Helms.

On August 13, 2012 the New York Times outlined how TrapWire was infringing on public security. WikiLeaks Stirs Global Fears on Antiterrorist Software”

This was followed by a story on a Wired Magazine blog: Trapwire: It’s Not the Surveillance, It’s the Sleaze:

On August 14, 2012 the The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age ran the following retraction: Monday's story ‘‘Surveillance system linked to transport, defence contractor’’, and the online story ‘‘Revealed: TrapWire spy cams’ ticket to Australia’’, incorrectly said the TrapWire surveillance system was owned by Cubic Corporation.

Cubic Corporation is a US Military/Defence contractor, with subsidiaries including Cubic Defense Applications Inc, and Cubic Cyber Solutions, Inc. As revealed in tax filings from 2010, Cubic also wholly owns cyber security firms Abraxas and Ntrepid. The latter provides Persona Management services to the U.S. and unspecified "multinational forces" in conjunction with CENTCOM information operations program Operation Earnest Voice, as provided for in a 2010 contract.


This Tech Herald article discusses the managerial revolving door between Cubic, Abraxas, and Ntrepid.

In 2010, Abraxas was purchased by another intelligence contractor, Cubic for the tidy sum of $124 million in cash. Some of the top talent at Anonymizer, who later went to Abraxas, left the Cubic umbrella to start another intelligence firm. They are now listed as organizational leaders for Ntrepid, the ultimate winner of the $2.7 million dollar government contract. Ntrepid, “provides national security and law enforcement customers with software, hardware, and managed services for cyber operations, analytics, linguistics, and tagging & tracking,” a company profile explains. Ntrepid’s corporate registry lists Abraxas’ previous CEO and founder, Richard Helms, as the director and officer, along with Wesley Husted, the former CFO, who is an Ntrepid officer as well. The shifting company names and management has led to some speculation that this is a front company for Abraxas, but there is no proof of those claims.[1]

During the 2010 election cycle Cubic officers donated some $90,000 to Republican candidates, including $25,000 to the National Republican Congressional Committee and some $30,000 to the National Republican Senatorial Committee. The RFI for the Air Force disclosed by Anonymous Ragan reports, "was written for Anonymizer, a company acquired in 2008 by intelligence contractor Abraxas Corporation. The reasoning is that they had existing persona management software and abilities."In turn, Abraxas was purchased by Cubic in 2010 for $124 million, an acquisition which Washington Technology described as one of the "best intelligence-related" deals of the year.[2]

With some $1 billion in 2009 revenue largely derived from the Defense Department, the company's "Cyber Solutions" division "provides specialized cyber security products and solutions for defense, intelligence and homeland security customers."

Amongst the Security Services offered by the firm we learn that "Cubic subsidiaries are working individually and in concert to develop a wide range of security solutions" that include: "C4ISR data links for homeland security intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions;" a Cubic Virtual Analysis Center which promises to deliver "superior situational awareness to decision makers in government, industry and nonprofit organizations," human behavior pattern analysis, and other areas lusted after by securocrats.[3]

This picture may give some idea of the relationships between Cubic Corp, other companies, and individuals.


Cubic Corporation is the parent company of three major business segments: Defense Systems, Mission Support Services and Transportation Systems. Cubic Defense Systems is a leading provider of realistic combat training systems, cyber technologies, asset tracking solutions, and defense electronics. Mission Support Services is a leading provider of training, operations, maintenance, technical and other support services. Cubic Transportation Systems is the world’s leading provider of automated fare collection systems and services for public transit authorities.


Ntrepid is a Los Angeles-incorporated, Virginia-headquartered subsidiary of Cubic Corporation and supplier to the USAF of Persona Management software which was procured for CENTCOM, which in turn provided it for use by unspecified parties. Ntrepid was first incorporated in California on 25th October 2010, four months after the solicitation for Persona Management software was issued by CENTCOM. It may be assumed that Ntrepid was formed in order to provide surveillance, persona management, and attribution capabilities to the US Military; technology originating from Abraxas and Cubic.

Ntrepid had previously acquired personnel from several other firms which were themselves undergoing rapid consolidation. As noted by Steve Ragan of Tech Herald:

Internal communications from Aaron Barr say that the RFI for the persona software was written for Anonymizer, a company acquired in 2008 by intelligence contractor Abraxas Corporation. The reasoning is that they had existing persona management software and abilities. In 2010, Abraxas was purchased by another intelligence contractor, Cubic Corporation for the tidy sum of $124 million in cash. Some of the top talent at Anonymizer, who later went to Abraxas, left the Cubic umbrella to start another intelligence firm. They are now listed as organizational leaders for Ntrepid, the ultimate winner of the $2.7 million dollar government contract.

The United States Central Command awarded a $2.76 contract to this new company to produce persona management software in pursuance of CENTCOM's Operation Earnest Voice program. The contract is for the creation software allowing "fake online personas to influence net conversations and spread US propaganda." The technology is supposedly for use on non-US forums and social media outlets, thus circumventing US laws against impersonation.


On June 22, 2010, CENTCOM issued an official solicitation for software companies to bid for a contract creating a 'persona management service'. According to articles in The Guardian and elsewhere, one contract winner was Ntrepid:

While data security firm HBGary Federal was among the contract's bidders listed on a government website, the job was ultimately awarded to a firm that did not appear on the page of interested vendors. HBGary, which conspired with Bank of America and the Chamber of Commerce to attack WikiLeaks, spy on progressive writers and use malware against progressive organizations, was also revealed to have constructed software eerily similar to what the Air Force sought. This contract was awarded to a firm called Ntrepid. n addition to the classified activities this software supports, USCENTCOM, like most military commands, does use social media to inform the public of our activities. I should emphasize that such uses do not employ the kind of technology that was the subject of this contract solicitation. Ntrepid Corporation, registered out of Los Angeles, bills itself as a privacy and identity protection firm in some job postings, and a national security contractor in others, but its official website was amazingly just one page deep and free of even a single word of description.

Abraxas is an intelligence contractor that has been revealed to be a significant player in Persona Management. The firm was founded by Richard Hollis Helms (not to be confused with former CIA director McGarrah). Abraxas opened its Chinese branch in 2004. Abraxas acquired Anomymizer in May of 2008, naming Lance Cottrell, founder and CTO of Anonymizer, as Chief Scientist for the firm. The financial details of the acquisition were not disclosed. Allied Capital invested $52mil in Anonymizer shortly thereafter. Anonymizer was known for being one of the first corporate application offerings to promote secure and anonymous web browsing. Abraxas headquarters is based in Annapolis Junction, MD.

Abraxas Corporation should not be confused with Abraxas Engineering, though the two are related. Richard Helms also served as CEO of California-based Edge Intelligence, acquired by Abraxas on October 9, 2008.

Persona Management Involvement

As noted by Steve Ragan of The Tech Herald in reference to a 2010 federal contract seeking bids on persona management software:

Internal communications from Aaron Barr say that the RFI [request for information by federal contracting officers] for the persona software was written for Anonymizer, a company acquired in 2008 by intelligence contractor Abraxas Corporation. The reasoning is that they had existing persona management software and abilities. In 2010, Abraxas was purchased by another intelligence contractor, Cubic Corporation for the tidy sum of $124 million in cash. Some of the top talent at Anonymizer, who later went to Abraxas, left the Cubic umbrella to start another intelligence firm. They are now listed as organizational leaders for Ntrepid, the ultimate winner of the $2.7 million dollar government contract.

Upon Anonymizer's purchase by Abraxas, the following press release was made available:

Thursday, May 01, 2008

Herndon, Va., Richard Helms, CEO and Founder of Abraxas Corporation announced today the acquisition of San Diego-based Anonymizer, Inc.

In making the announcement, Mr. Helms noted that, "We are very pleased and excited about bringing the very talented Anonymizer team on board. Their products and services in trusted anonymity are second to none and perfectly complement our existing risk mitigation technology offerings. Anonymizer has developed a complete portfolio of capabilities focused in protecting online identities and privacy. They were the first to bring such a service to market, and, after 12 years of perfecting it, have become the undisputed market and technology leader. Since its inception, Anonymizer has protected millions of global Internet users.

Helms further stated, "I am also pleased to announce that Lance Cottrell, the Founder and Chief Technology Officer of Anonymizer, will become our Chief Scientist and continue to pursue his advocacy of privacy for people around the world. Bill Unrue, Anonymizer's CEO, will assume the position of President of Anonymizer which will operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of Abraxas Corporation. Bill will continue to pursue Anonymizer's goals to provide proprietary technologies and complementary capabilities that offer unique, multi-layered identity protection that enhances the traditional network perimeter defenses of consumers, corporations and government agencies."



In August, 2012, in response to Wikileaks release of Strator emails relating to Trapwire, the Cubic Corporation put out the following media release through PRWeb:

Cubic Corporation Has No Affiliation with Trapwire, Inc.

Erroneous reports link Cubic Corporation to Trapwire, Inc.

Cubic Corporation (NYSE: CUB) acquired Abraxas Corporation on December 20, 2010. Abraxas Corporation then and now has no affiliation with Abraxas Applications now known as Trapwire, Inc.

Erroneous reports have linked the company with Trapwire, Inc. Trapwire, Inc. is a risk mitigation technology and services company that builds and markets software products to prevent terrorist threats and criminal attacks.

Cubic Background

The following general background is from the wiki over at [5]

  • In July of 2004, they were granted a $6.5 million subcontract from General Dynamics Amphibious Systems to develop and produce a Driver Simulator and a Turret Simulator for the Marine Corps new Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle (EFV). This tracked, amphibious, armored vehicle can transport a loaded squad across the water at up to 25 knots and across land with the agility of an M1 tank. These simulators are used to train and familiarize the drivers and gunners with the EFVs. [6]
  • In October of 2004, they were awarded a $6 million contract from Raytheon/Lockheed Martin Javelin Joint Venture to produce tactical trainers for RLM's shoulder launched, "fire-and-forget" anti-tank missile. The Javelin Field Tactical Trainers contract is the latest of four to provide training equipment for this weapon. [7]
  • They are one of 22 companies working with General Dynamics under a contract from the US Joint Forces Command's Joint Experimentation Program (JEXP) that has a potential value of $478.6 million. As of 2004, Cubic has been in "the Tidewater area of Virginia" for a decade since it helped establish the Joint War-fighting Center at Fort Monroe, Va. Currently they have 160 employees there. Says Richard Bristow, vice president and GM of Cubic's Operation Support Division, "War-fighting experiments conducted by JXEP and the Joint Futures lab are an important part of transformation, a process that helps our country identify new skills and technologies needed in this new era of asymmetric warfare." [8]
  • In November of 2004, Cubic was awarded a contract by the US Army's National Simulation Center at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, that has a ceiling of $95 million. [9]
  • In September, 2004, Cubic received a contract from the Defense Threat Reduction Agency to coordinate training exercises for military and civilian organizations to respond to chemical, biological, nuclear and high-explosives attacks. This will enable DTRA to "improve US response capabilities and evaluate national, federal, state and local policies for responding." The contract is for five years, with one five-year option, an additional one year option and a $43 million ceiling.[10]
  • The Avionics Advanced Development division of Cubic has redesigned their AN/ARS-6 Personnel Locater Systems and which have been used in every global military operation since 1987. The devices are the standard search and rescue system for US and NATO forces. [11] They have also entered into a partnership with Digital Angel Corporation's subsidiary, Signature Industries, to integrate Signature's beacon with Cubic's PLS. [12]
  • They are building the Surveillance Target Attack Radar System (STARS) which is an air/ ground data link system for the US military. [13]

The clientèle of Cubic Corp. is multi-national. In November 2010 Cubuc Defense Applications has been awarded a follow-on contract worth more than $30 million for support work at two British Army training areas in Canada and England [14].

The three-year contract, signed in late September, is for maintenance and operation of Area Weapons Effects Simulator (AWES) systems at the British Army Training Unit Suffield (BATUS), in the Canadian province of Alberta, and at the Defence Training Estate Salisbury Plain (DTE SP), in the county of Wiltshire in southern England. About 30 Cubic employees work in support roles at each location.

And in February 2011 Cubic Defense Applications has received a $40 million contract for the expansion and modernization of the instrumentation for the British Army’s Salisbury Plain ground combat training range. The contract was awarded to Cubic as part of an urgent operational requirement to enhance troop readiness and predeployment training to support ongoing operations in Afghanistan [15].

“The British Army is one of our largest long-term and most important customers,” said Bradley H. Feldmann, President of Cubic Defense Applications. “We are fully committed to deliver these new capabilities on an accelerated basis to satisfy this urgent requirement.”

Further Research Needed

Cubic is a sprawling and secretive organisation. There are many more subsidiaries (e.g Navsat Corp, Cubic Global Tracking, Cubic Simulations). More details are needed on the directors and officers, and also the business dealings of the various arms of Cubic, most importantly Cubic Cyber Solutions, and Cubic Defense Applications.
