CACI International Inc. won a four-year, $91 million task order from the Army to provide communications support to the Defense Communications and Army Transmission Systems headquarters at Fort Monmouth, N.J.
CACI will assist the Army's communications needs worldwide by supplying satellite-to-ground telecommunications systems engineering, information technology, field support services and training and logistics.
The company will continue its IT support for telecommunications command centers in South Korea and Hawaii. At Fort Monmouth, CACI systems engineers will help the Army design and develop telecommunication systems, evaluate best-of-breed technologies and aid in providing interoperability between new and existing systems.
The Defense Communications and Army Transmission Systems provide long-haul connectivity that links Army headquarters, the Joint Services and battlefield commanders. Using technologies that range from microwave and satellite signals to fiber optic and copper cables, it also manages the construction of telecommunications hubs and transmission systems for the Defense Department.
