CACI International Inc. has won a five-year, $88 million contract from the Navy to provide systems engineering support for Navy ship self-defense systems, the company announced today.
The contract was awarded by the Navy Expeditionary Warfare, Ship Self Defense System Division at the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Port Hueneme, Calif.
CACI of Arlington, Va., will support the Navy's Integrated Ship Defense program at shore sites, land-based test facilities, shipyards and aboard ships. The program oversees the integration of shipboard sensors and weapon systems to form combat systems that detect, identify, evaluate and engage enemy forces.
CACI has supported the program under various contracts over the past eight years. The company currently supports integrated ship defense at five sites around the country. CACI expects to transition to the new contract this month.
The company expects to apply its legacy simulation technologies during the course of the contract and to enable the Navy to save money by simulating the performance of integrated ship defense systems before committing to development, the company said. In addition, CACI teams will provide systems testing and user training for maximum effectiveness.
CACI a provider of IT and network solutions for defense, intelligence and e-government, has more than 9,400 employees and annual sales of $843.1 million. The company ranked No. 17 on Washington Technology's 2004 Top 100 list, which measures federal contracting revenue.
