CACI awarded $25 million contract to continue support for U.S. Air Force information operations training
CACI International Inc announced on January 20 that it has been awarded a $25 million contract to continue its support for the U.S. Air Force Air, Space and Cyberspace Constructive Environment – Information Operations Suite (ACE-IOS) for the 90th Information Operations Squadron of the 24th Air Force and Air Force Cyber Command. The three-year contract represents ongoing work in Arlington, VA-based CACI’s Command and Control market area.
Under the terms of this contract, CACI will continue to provide full-system lifecycle and development support, including verification, validation, test, and exercise functions to support Air Operations Center (AOC) Information Operations training. The system simulates kinetic and non-kinetic battlefield activities and AOC command and control systems, immersing airmen in a realistic combat environment. The system also constructs a realistic cyber environment to provide computer network attack and defense training.
CACI Chief Operating Officer and President of U.S. Operations John Mengucci said, “This contract award is a testament to our innovative integration of technical engineering and scientific analysis of cyber threats and information operations to add a robust capability to the Air Force’s training simulation suite.”
Ken Asbury, CACI’s President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “The support we will continue to provide to the Air Force and Cyber Command keeps CACI at the forefront of cyber training for America’s military. We are proud to continue to play a role in keeping America’s military trained and ready for action.”
