CACI adds ASR to recent purchase list

Acquisition follows closely behind TechniGraphics purchase

CACI International Inc. will acquire Applied Systems Research Inc., a provider of technical services and products to the intelligence community. Financial terms of the transaction were not reported.

This acquisition complements CACI’s recently announced intention to acquire TechniGraphics Inc., furthering the company’s growth in the geospatial and technical intelligence disciplines, according to a CACI statement.

Closing of the TechniGraphics purchase is anticipated Nov. 1.

ASR’s core competencies include radar and infrared imaging and interpretation, passive radio frequency signatures, chemical and biological sensors, acoustic sensors, and asymmetric threat detection methodologies.

Its Measurements and Signatures Intelligence (MASINT) processes provide solutions to difficult spatial, spectral and technical intelligence tasks, the statement said.

By employing complex scientific and mathematical computations, ASR converts data into usable intelligence for policy-makers and the military.

The acquisition of the 50-employee company in Fairfax, Va., will complement and strengthen CACI’s existing capabilities, demonstrated performance and mission execution in the expanding MASINT and geospatial intelligence arenas, the announcement stated.

ASR also is a provider of professional services at the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency. Its geospatial intelligence support includes transformational technologies such as advanced geospatial intelligence.

Combined with TechniGraphics’ imagery services, ASR’s technical capabilities will allow CACI to provide end-to-end solutions in the imagery and geospatial realm.

ASR is expected to generate almost $10 million in revenue in calendar year 2010.

CACI International, of Arlington, Va., ranks No. 16 on Washington Technology’s 2010 Top 100 list of the largest federal government contractors.
