Arlington, VA-based CACI International Inc announced on October 17 that it is one of 10 companies awarded a prime position on a multiple-award, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract, with a ceiling value of $480 million, to support the U.S. Army’s Research Development and Engineering Command (RDECOM) Communications-Electronics Research Development and Engineering Center (CERDEC) Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate (NVESD). The award positions CACI to assist NVESD in developing and integrating sophisticated technologies to military and national responders worldwide. The five-year contract represents new work for CACI in its Surveillance and Reconnaissance market area.
The NVESD supports Army, joint expeditionary, special operations, intelligence, and other mission-focused activities by providing rapid access to technology solutions, and identifying capability needs based on the relevancy of technologies to the appropriate community. Under this contract, CACI will develop and integrate sophisticated solutions, including electro-optic and infrared technologies that enable forward deployed units to conduct their operations at night and in adverse visibility conditions. These solutions will meet a range of armed forces mission requirements, from mitigation of explosive devices to individual force protection and enhanced mobility. CACI’s technology solutions are also extensible to civil and national forces responding to incidents such as natural disasters.
John Mengucci, CACI’s chief operating officer, said, “CACI’s highly qualified team delivers expertise in a range of surveillance and reconnaissance technologies and solutions that are critical to this customer’s mission. We apply real-world understanding of operational environments to deliver rapid, adaptive solutions that can be easily integrated into the operations of forward-deployed units.”
According to CACI President and Chief Executive Officer Ken Asbury, “CACI is proud to continue our partnership with the U.S. Army’s RDECOM CERDEC Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate. With today’s increasingly fast-paced and complex battlespace, we are committed to delivering high-end solutions to enable U.S. troops to succeed against rapidly evolving threats wherever they arise.”
