Expands Business With Directorate in C4ISR Core Competency

ARLINGTON, Va. , Nov. 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CACI International Inc (NYSE: CAI) announced today that it has been awarded a $60 million prime contract to continue the development, maintenance, and operation of experimental airborne sensors for the U.S. Army's Research Development and Engineering Command (RDECOM) Communications-Electronics Research Development and Engineering Center (CERDEC) Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate (NVESD). CACI received the competitive three-year award under its Strategic Services Sourcing (S3) contract with the U.S. Army. The award increases both the size and scope of CACI's existing airborne sensors business with NVESD and strengthens the company's functional core competency in C4ISR (command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance).

NVESD researches and develops advanced night vision and other sensor technologies, such as infrared weapon sights, surveillance systems, and systems that enhance the soldier's ability to operate at night and during limited visibility conditions. CACI's support focuses on airborne sensors developed for fixed wing and rotary wing aircraft, with increased emphasis on sensors designed for use on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

CACI's services include engineering, development, systems integration, and test and evaluation of sensor systems. The company will provide quick reaction and rapid prototyping to ensure systems are developed on time and fielded quickly to meet high-priority wartime requirements.

According to Bill Fairl , CACI's President of U.S. Operations, "CACI's support for airborne sensors ensures the protection of warfighters and provides operational superiority in battlefield situations. 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."

CACI President and CEO Paul Cofoni said, "CACI is proud to expand our service to the U.S. Army's RDECOM CERDEC Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate. This award demonstrates the continued confidence the Directorate has that CACI provides valuable and reliable solutions, on schedule and within budget. We are committed to using all the resources at our disposal to support the development and delivery of systems that directly serve our warfighters and advance the government's most critical priorities in countering global terrorism."
