CACI Wins $60m US Army Contract

Defense and homeland security contractor CACI International has won a three-year $60m contract to continue the development, maintenance, and operation of airborne sensors for the US Army's Research Development and Engineering Command, RDECOM.

The company will provide services including engineering, development, systems integration, and test and evaluation of sensor systems. Its support will focus on airborne sensors developed for fixed wing and rotary wing aircraft, with emphasis on sensors designed for use on unmanned aerial vehicles.

Bill Fairl, president of US operations at CACI, said: "Our solutions enable us to help the Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate give the warfighter an advantage in nighttime environments, as well as during military operations in urban terrain, where CACI-supported sensor systems provide the ability to counteract excessive glare from artificial lighting."

In August, the company won a similar three-year $36m modeling and simulation contract from the Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate. It also won a five-year $26m contract from the US Army Deputy Chief of Staff Director of Force Management to provide operations, maintenance, and enhancement support for the Army's Force Management System.
