CACI International (NYSE: CACI) has won a prime position on a potential $247 million U.S. Army contract to prototype and insert technology into military platforms for C4ISR missions (command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance).
The company said the five-year indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract contains one base year and four one-year options and covers new work for the company with the Army’s Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center.
“This positions us for continued growth in our C4ISR market segment and aligns with our corporate mission to provide comprehensive information solutions and services for all our government clients, ” President and CEO Dan Allen said.
He added a goal of the project is to process and distribute information to forward operating forces.
In late July, Allen announced the company won close to $1 billion in intelligence work during fiscal year 2012 (click here to see some of the programs the company is working on).
“CERDEC’s Command, Power, and Integration Directorate has long been a core business client for our C4ISR team, ” Chief Operating Officer John Mengucci said. “This win culminates more than a year of capture activity at all levels of CACI management.”
Work under this project includes research, development and implementation of new concepts and technologies for mission command and command and control.
The company will also conduct research and development of technologies into portable power sources out of CACI and CERDEC facilities at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md.
