CACI International Inc of Arlington, VA announced on October 30 that it was awarded a $91 million task order to provide support to the U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Research, Development, and Engineering Center (CERDEC) Flight Activity (CFA). This four-year task order, awarded under the Rapid Response-Third Generation (R23G) contract vehicle, represents continuing work in the company’s Surveillance and Reconnaissance market area.
CFA supports the research, development, and evaluation of C4ISR (command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance) airborne intelligence systems. Under this contract, CACI will provide CFA with airborne platform systems integration, maintenance, and training and operations support for surveillance and reconnaissance missions. CACI will further provide services in the areas of electronic and mechanical engineering design, prototype development, and all facets of training, platform maintenance, flight and ground operations, including OCONUS deployment and integrated logistics support.
In addition, CACI will support the testing of new technologies as part of the Army’s efforts to mature capabilities.
