CACI Awarded Task Order Valued at $40 Million to Support U.S. Army Forward Looking Infrared Systems

Contract Enables Company to Continue and Expand Work to Enhance Warfighter Reconnaissance, Target Acquisition, Surveillance Capabilities

ARLINGTON, Va. , March 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CACI International Inc (NYSE: CAI) announced today that it has been awarded a new task order, totaling an estimated $40 million in value, under the U.S. Army's Strategic Services Sourcing (S3) contract vehicle. The contract, for one base year and two option years, supports the Army's Product Manager Forward Looking Infrared (PM FLIR) and Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate (NVESD). The award increases CACI's business in the area of Army C4ISR (command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance).

PM FLIR is responsible for the development, capabilities' assessment, test and evaluation, production, and operational support of FLIR sensor-based systems for the Army and other DoD organizations. The office works closely with the Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate to identify, invest in, develop, and transition technologies and systems that show the most potential for enhancing the effectiveness and survivability capabilities of the warfighter. The goal of PM FLIR is to enable "sensing beyond the visible" to reveal threats that might otherwise remain unseen or blended into the environment.

CACI will provide engineering, logistics, and business operations support for the development, manufacture, and sustainment of FLIR systems. This life-cycle work for the PM FLIR programs will utilize the company's extensive capabilities in prototype and test-bed fabrication, integration, program management, systems engineering, software development, integrated logistics support, and test and evaluation support.

According to Bill Fairl , President of U.S. Operations, "We are very pleased that this award with the Product Manager Forward Looking Infrared enables CACI to enhance our support for the U.S. Army's infrared and night vision programs. It forcefully demonstrates the company's ability to provide high technology services to key Department of Defense customers."

CACI President and CEO Paul Cofoni said, "We're especially gratified that this important, continuing work under the Army's Strategic Services Sourcing contract provides CACI with the opportunity to help develop the next generation of tactical sensors to support our nation's warfighters in-theater. The award demonstrates our commitment to support the Department of Defense's acquisition community in all aspects of its tactical missions."
