CACI International Inc. has won a $27 million contract from the Army Forces Command to support battle-command training for Army reserve units, the company announced today.
CACI of Arlington, Va., will provide comprehensive training and IT support for war-gaming simulations. The work includes programming the simulations and maintaining related databases as well as preparing and training reserve personnel for simulations use.
The company also will support computer-driven simulation exercises for all Army units and other agencies, as well as provide similar services for the Army Battle Command Systems, a network of applications that delivers warfighting data to command centers and commanders in the field.
The contract was awarded under the Operations, Planning, Training and Resource Support Services contract, a $650 million multiple-award contracting vehicle for which CACI is one of the prime contractors.
