CACI takes on 'last mile'

CACI International Inc. will help provide the so-called "last mile" in the global connectivity grid under a task order for logistics support for the Army's tactical radio communication systems.

CACI won the $91.7 million task order under the Strategic Services Sourcing contract with the Army Communications-Electronics Life Cycle Management Command. CACI is one of seven prime contractors on the S3 program, which has a total estimated value of $19.3 billion.

The new award calls for CACI to offer logistics support to a new client, the Army Project Manager, Tactical Radio Communications Systems. The unit fields more than 150 systems across 50 states and four territories to support homeland security.

In the global war on terrorism, the group supports the armed forces with airborne and ground-based radio communications that enable the exchange of situational awareness data and voice communications for tactical operations.

CACI's role includes helping the Army oversee the development and fielding of tactical communications systems. Engineering experts from the CACI team will help monitor the manufacture and testing of both original and re-engineered systems, to ensure specifications and schedules are met and costs are contained.

CACI logistics specialists will assist in planning how systems are distributed and deployed to troops in the field, how related supplies are allocated, and how training is developed and scheduled to ensure war-fighter readiness.

CACI, which has about 10,100 employees and had fiscal 2005 revenue of $1.6 billion, ranks No. 13 on Washington Technology's 2006 Top 100 list of the largest federal IT contractors.
