Arlington, Virginia-based CACI International Inc. recently obtained an order worth $54.5 million to supply research, development and systems support for U.S. Army communications.
The order is slated to span 31 months and represents a significant expansion for CACI, according to an announcement. The task order applies to the systems engineering, architecture, modeling and simulation (SEAMS) division of the space and terrestrial communications directorate under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center.
“The Army’s communications network is a highly complex system of systems that spans multiple technologies and reaches across the globe,” John Mengucci, CACI’s chief operating officer, said in the announcement. “CACI has the experience and expertise needed to support the adoption and integration of fast-changing voice, data, and video technologies into these tactical and strategic networks, ensuring security and enhancing connectivity and performance.”
The SEAMS division in Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, is responsible for systems engineering including network structure and management, modeling and simulation, and risk reduction work.
CACI will provide much of this in addition to evaluating tactical radio operations and military and commercial satellite communication systems.
“America’s soldiers operate in very diverse and dynamic mission environments, and they rely on secure networks to provide undisrupted communications,” CACI President and CEO Ken Asbury said. “CACI is committed to supporting these critical defense missions by developing and delivering innovative solutions that ensure the secure exchange of information at the speed of operations.”
