CACI Awarded Additional Ceiling of $97.9 Million to Support U.S. Army Tactical Radio Communications Systems

ARLINGTON, Va. , May 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CACI International Inc (NYSE: CAI) announced today that the U.S. Army has awarded the company an additional ceiling of $97.9 million to support the Army Project Manager, Tactical Radio Communications Systems (PM TRCS). The competitively awarded increase now raises the potential value of the four-year PM TRCS contract to $189.6 million. CACI won the PM TRCS support effort under the Army's Strategic Services Sourcing (S3) contract vehicle in October 2006 . This award represents both new business and the expansion of current tasks, and continues the growth of CACI's business in command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C4ISR).

The Army's tactical radio communications systems connect warfighters and first responders to each other and to military and government decision-makers. PM TRCS fields more than 150 such systems, providing airborne and ground-based radio communications in support of tactical operations that include battlefield engagements in Iraq .

CACI currently supports the manufacture and testing of systems to ensure specifications and schedules are met and costs are contained. The company also assists the PM TRCS in planning how systems are distributed and deployed, how related supplies are allocated, and how training is developed and scheduled to ensure the highest levels of warfighter readiness.

The new funding significantly expands CACI's existing PM TRCS work. The increase also reflects new business for CACI in support of additional communications. Here, CACI will help the Army use technologies to better sustain radio transmissions during battlefield operations. Where conventional radio signals may fail over difficult terrain or under harsh conditions, this form of communication provides greater success.

Bill Fairl , CACI President of U.S. Operations, said, "CACI is now serving on more than 30 communications programs for this client. We're also excited to have this opportunity to support the Army's most cutting-edge communications, including helping warfighters use the Internet to communicate over long distances in a war zone."

Paul Cofoni , CACI President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "We know that effective communications are the key to battlefield success. We continue to make it a priority to support our nation's most critical missions with innovative services and solutions that increase our clients' abilities to succeed."
