CACI International Inc. of Arlington, Va., announced March 13 that it was awarded a $50 million subcontract to provide software support for the U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Command Software Engineering Center in Ft. Monmouth, N.J.
The 10-year, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity subcontract was awarded to CACI by the McLean, Va., Defense Enterprise Solutions Unit of Northrop Grumman Information Technology Inc. The new contract will increase the scope and value of CACI's CECOM work and expand its intelligence services business with the Department of Defense, according to the company.
The CECOM Software Engineering Center provides life-cycle software support for more than 250 Army intelligence, electronic warfare and communications systems fielded worldwide. The objective of the Software Engineering Center contract is to sustain and upgrade these systems and leverage commercial best practices and technologies into future systems. CACI has supported CECOM for 20 years, performing activities such as prototyping, testing and fielding information systems that collect and analyze military intelligence data on the battlefield.
Under the new subcontract, CACI will expand this support to the software level, upgrading network and system software to enhance performance and security, integrating emerging new technologies, troubleshooting and debugging software and providing help desk support. CACI will also provide testing and analysis services to ensure that systems meet requirements for protecting data before the systems are fielded.
With the subcontract, "CACI has a great opportunity to add value to the capabilities of Northrop Grumman and our Army client," said CACI Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Jack London. "We are combining our intelligence expertise and proven software development skills to expand support for some of the Army's most critical networks and systems, whose accuracy and reliability are more vital than ever to carrying out our nation's tactical missions."
