CACI International Inc of Arlington, VA announced August 25 that it was awarded a $28 million contract to support specialized technologies for the U.S. Army Research, Development, and Engineering Command’s (RDECOM) Communications-Electronics Research, Development, and Engineering Center (CERDEC) Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate (NVESD). This 22-month task order was awarded under the Strategic Services Sourcing (S3) contract vehicle and represents new business in CACI’s Surveillance and Reconnaissance market area.

CACI brings a successful track record of supporting the development of advanced sensor technologies that the Army requires to increase situational awareness of threats and adversaries.
John Mengucci, CACI’s Chief Operating Officer and President of U.S. Operations, said, “CACI will leverage our extensive subject matter expertise to assist the Army in delivering infrared technologies that save time and cost, while enabling troops to safely complete their missions.”
According to CACI President and Chief Executive Officer Ken Asbury, “With this award for new business, CACI expands our partnership with the U.S. Army’s CERDEC NVESD. We are proud of our ongoing role in supporting the development of technologies that serve and protect all our military men and women, and that provide a tactical advantage on the battlefield.”
