Arlington, VA-based CACI International Inc announced on May 12 that it has been awarded a five-year single-award task order, with a ceiling value of more than $465 million, by the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command’s (CCDC) Command, Control, Computers, Communications, Cyber, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C5ISR) center to provide research and development on cryptographic modernization, information security, and tactical network protection.
Under the task order, which the Army’s Cyber Security and Information Division (CSIA) awarded under the GSA Alliant II contract vehicle, CACI will provide mission expertise to enhance cyber defense capabilities for C5ISR systems. CSIA leads the Army in cryptographic modernization, information security, and tactical network protection as a division of the Army Space and Terrestrial Communications Directorate, C5ISR Center, CCDC, U.S. Army Futures Command (AFC).
CACI will provide the Army with new software-defined capabilities across the service’s many modernization initiatives and research areas. For example, CACI communications and cyber experts will assist the service in protecting next-generation 5G networks, as well as enhancing the security of wireless, near-field, satellite, and other communications. CACI will also support urgent requirements for AFC’s cross-functional teams, provide techniques and technologies to reduce risks for Army networks, and move innovative technologies such as artificial intelligence from the laboratory to the field.
John Mengucci, CACI president and chief executive officer, said, “With this new work, CACI’s mission experts will support the Army’s C5ISR capabilities from the desktop to outer space, and enable the service to advance critical technologies from the lab to the field.”
