CACI International Inc. has won a seven-month task order worth up to $31 million to continue supporting the Army's Trojan satellite communications systems, the company said today.
Under the new order, CACI will assist the Army with integrating, testing and deploying Trojan systems worldwide. The task order was awarded by the Intelligence and Information Directorate of the U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Research Development and Engineering Center.
The Trojan systems let the Army manage and disseminate critical intelligence information. The systems include quickly deployable mobile communications systems that can be mounted on Humvees or aboard aircraft, such as the C-130, or tailored to different types of operations. The systems connect tactical commanders in the field to decision-makers at the national and joint strategic intelligence levels.
The award was issued under the $500 million Technical, Engineering, Fabrication and Operations Support contract, awarded to CACI and Booz Allen Hamilton Inc. in November 2000. Under the contract, which consists of one base year and four one-year options, the companies compete for task orders to provide technical, engineering, fabrication and operations support.
The order is the fourth consecutive award to CACI to support the Trojan program. The government contractor previously has provided systems design and engineering, comprehensive hardware and software support and system upgrade to Army users.
Based in Arlington, Va., CACI has about 9,500 people and had revenue of more than $1.1 billion for fiscal 2004. It ranks No. 17 on Washington Technology's 2005 Top 100 list of federal prime contractors.
