CACI awarded prime position on $49.5 million contract to support U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory
Arlington, VA-based CACI International Inc announced on December 2 that it was awarded one of two prime positions on a $49.5 million indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract to develop advanced simulations for the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL). This seven-year contract represents continuing work for CACI in its Surveillance and Reconnaissance market area.
AFRL performs research to discover, develop, and integrate advanced technologies for United States Air Force air, space, and cyberspace applications. Under this contract, CACI will develop real-time, battlefield simulations of anti-access/area denial environments in which aircraft are vulnerable to electronic warfare (EW) threats. These simulations enable researchers to evaluate the performance of EW sensor systems introduced into simulated battlefield environments.
John Mengucci, CACI’s Chief Operating Officer and President of U.S. Operations, said, “CACI will continue to deliver electronic warfare expertise and simulation technologies that bring sophisticated battlefield conditions into the laboratory and enhance the Air Force’s surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities.”
According to CACI President and Chief Executive Officer Ken Asbury, “This contract with the Air Force Research Laboratory exemplifies the innovative technologies and approaches we bring to helping our customers develop state-of-the-art capabilities to stay ahead of evolving global threats.”
