CACI International Inc. has been awarded a five-year, $24 million contract with the Naval Research Laboratory to support the Offboard Countermeasures branch of its Tactical Electronic Warfare Division, the company announced June 3.
The one-year contract, which provides for four option years, is the second major award CACI has won with the NRL this year. In January, the company was awarded an $22.3 million contract with the Central Target Simulator branch.
CACI, based in Arlington, Va., will research, develop, test and analyze Navy electronic warfare capabilities designed to counter and decoy missile and related threats to U.S. tactical aircraft. The company's engineers will work onsite at NRL to provide fabrication and engineering services in support of Navy requirements for offboard countermeasure systems. The systems include decoys to deceive anti-aircraft missiles and unmanned air vehicles used for a multitude of missions, including electronic warfare.
"Our long-standing partnership with the Naval Research Laboratory was instrumental in our winning this contract," said Ken Johnson, president of CACI's U.S. operations.
