CACI wins $132 million Army night vision, sensor deal

CACI International Inc. has won a seven-year, $132 million contract from the Army Communications-Electronics Command to support development of night vision and electronic sensor technology, the company announced today.

Under the contract, CACI of Arlington, Va., will provide engineering, modeling and simulation and other specialized skills. The contract supports the Army Research, Development and Engineering Center's Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate.

The award increases both the scope and value of CACI's work with the center and expands the company's support for the Defense Department's command, control, communications, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance system needs.

The Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate, located at Fort Belvoir, Va., is a center for the Army's research and development of night vision and other sensor technologies. The technologies developed by the directorate, such as imaging devices, ground-penetrating radar systems and lasers, help warfighters recognize targets and detect potential hazards, such as land mines.

CACI's role is to help the Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate explore new technologies in night vision, electronic sensors, countermine and survivability systems. The company's engineering and simulation expertise will help the directorate to model, design and prototype new products, the company said.

CACI, a provider of information technology and network solutions for defense, intelligence and e-government, has about 6,900 employees and annual sales of $843 million.
