U.S. Navy awards CACI contract to support deployment of counter UAS platforms
The U.S. Navy has awarded CACI International Inc. a $48.5 million single-award, “indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract” to provide integration, installation, sustainment, and engineering services to the Naval Air Systems Command Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD) AIRWorks Rapid Development Capabilities Integrated Product team.
CACI develops, deploys, and integrates counter-UAS technologies with its SkyTracker product suite, providing “fixed site, on-the-move, and man-packable and small form factor technologies.”
Under this contract, CACI will support the deployment of new and existing counter-UAS capabilities and hardware to “high-priority and sensitive government sites” that protect assets important to national security, by providing technical, engineering, and project management support services, including modeling and simulation, and hardware, software, and command and control integration.
“As an industry leader in precision radiofrequency counter-unmanned aerial systems capabilities, CACI offers the Naval Air Systems Command’s AIRWorks team a system-of-systems approach to protecting national security assets,” says John Mengucci, CACI’s Chief Operating Officer.
“We look forward to continuing to build on the long-standing relationship CACI has developed with the Navy, and providing our highly specialized and precise technologies that help the Navy advance AIRWorks capabilities in support of its important mission.”
According to CACI, this one-year contract represents new and continuing work for the company in its Intelligence Systems and Support market area.
