CACI International Inc of Arlington, VA announced on November 1 that it was awarded a $34.5 million task order to provide technology updates and operations and maintenance to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Air and Marine Operations Surveillance System (AMOSS). This four-year task order, awarded under the Department of Homeland Security’s Enterprise Acquisition Gateway for Leading-Edge Solutions II contract vehicle, represents continuing work in the company’s Intelligence Services market area.
AMOSS is a highly advanced system used by the CBP Air and Marine Operations Center to provide a real-time air and marine surveillance picture of U.S. borders and a significant portion of the western hemisphere.

AMOSS includes a display that is capable of tracking over 50,000 individual aircraft and watercraft, and is also used in the coordination of disaster response.
Under this contract, CACI will deliver new capabilities, software updates, and 24/7 operations and maintenance services for AMOSS. The company will also continue to provide data analysis and analytics to the Air and Marine Operations Center, as well as evaluation, testing, and integration of new technologies and sensor feeds into the AMOSS system.
