CACI International Inc announced on December 12 that it was awarded a $31 million contract to support modeling and simulation technology for the U.S. Army Research, Development, and Engineering Command’s (RDECOM) Communications-Electronics Research, Development, and Engineering Center (CERDEC) Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate (NVESD). This three-year task order, awarded under the R2-3G contract vehicle, represents new business in CACI’s Surveillance and Reconnaissance market area.
CERDEC NVESD conducts research and development of advanced night vision and other sensor technologies, such as infrared weapon sights, and long-range surveillance and target acquisition systems, which enhance our Armed Forces’ operational advantage in daytime, nighttime, and limited visibility conditions.
Under this contract, CACI will support the development of realistic electro-optic/infrared and SIGINT payload modeling and simulation capabilities and training systems. These training systems will enhance the readiness of the Army’s Airborne Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (A-ISR) tactical units, resulting in improved situational awareness to Army brigade combat teams. The company will also provide pilots and trainers to develop and execute A-ISR programs of instruction.
John Mengucci, CACI’s chief operating officer and president of U.S. operations, said, “As a pioneer in modeling and simulation technology, CACI will leverage our extensive subject matter expertise and knowledge of this customer’s mission applications to develop highly realistic simulations in support of Army airborne intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance operations.”
According to CACI President and Chief Executive Officer Ken Asbury, “With this award for new work, CACI is proud to expand our ongoing partnership with the U.S. Army’s Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate. It continues CACI’s commitment to providing our government customers with the tools and resources to gather actionable intelligence for military decision-makers.”
