CACI International Inc., of Ballston, VA, announced on November 10 that it has been awarded a $32.5 million contract to support the development of specialized technologies for the U.S. Army’s night vision and electronic sensors directorate (NVESD).
This two-year (one base plus one option year) contract was awarded under the rapid response – third generation (R23G) contract vehicle. With this award, CACI expands its command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C4ISR) market area.
NVESD, known as the “night vision lab” and located at Fort Belvoir, VA, conducts research and development of advanced night vision and other sensor technologies, such as infrared weapon sights and surveillance systems, that enhance the effectiveness of our Armed Forces in nighttime and limited visibility conditions. With this contract, CACI will provide program management and systems engineering support for the development, testing, and fielding of electro-optical and infrared sensor components and countermeasures, which detect and identify air, sea, and ground targets.
According to CACI President and Chief Executive Officer Ken Asbury, “This contract award enables us to support the development of innovative sensor technologies that are becoming increasingly critical to identifying and targeting threats to our soldiers and homeland.”
CACI provides information solutions and services in support of national security missions and government transformation for intelligence, defense, and federal civilian customers.
