CACI International (NYSE: CACI) has won two contracts worth up to $237 million combined to help the U.S. Army deploy and field satellite terminals for a tactical communications network.
The Warfighter Information Network—Tactical is intended as the communications backbone for U.S. joint military forces and works to link soldiers to secure beyond-line-of-sight communications, CACI said Tuesday.
WIN-T has nearly 1, 000 deployed terminals and is designed to transmit mission command, call for fire, medical evacuation and secure information exchange messages.
“The WIN-T contract is an important strategic win for CACI, ” said Ken Asbury, president and CEO.
“It’s much more than one of the largest programs that the U.S. Army currently has in the C4ISR arena…it broadens our support in this high-volume market area and positions us as a first-line solutions and service provider for U.S. armed forces’ critical intelligence and communications programs, ” Asbury added.
“This new work to support the Army’s Warfighter Information Network–Tactical offers CACI the opportunity to ensure that the deployed forces’ satellite communications remain highly reliable, in support of their vital missions, ” said John Mengucci, chief operating officer.
CACI will also help deployed units maintain the terminals under a field sustainment plan and help train military forces.
