CACI International (NYSE: CACI) will help the U.S. Army reverse-engineer improvised explosive devices and unmanned aerial systems under a potential $443M task order, C4ISRNET reported Wednesday.

“U.S. adversaries continue to endanger our servicemembers by modifying off-the-shelf products,” said John Mengucci, president and CEO of CACI.

Mengucci added the company will apply its expertise to help the Army defeat emerging asymmetric threats.

As part of the task order, CACI will prototype, replicate and exploit commercial-based IEDs and drones that have been encountered across the globe for nefarious purposes.

The intelligence and information warfare directorate within Army's Command, Control, Computers, Communications, Cyber, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Center issued the order.
