CACI assists Army with infrared and night vision programs

CACI International Inc. will support the Army’s infrared and night vision programs under a three-year task order worth an estimated $40 million.

The new award, which comes under the Army’s Strategic Services Sourcing (S3) contract vehicle, increases CACI’s business in the area of Army command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C4ISR), CACI officials said Monday.

Under the award CACI will support the Army’s Product Manager Forward Looking Infrared (PM FLIR) and Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate.

PM FLIR is responsible for the development, capabilities’ assessment, test and evaluation, production, and operational support of FLIR sensor-based systems for the Army and other Defense Department organizations.

The goal of PM FLIR is to enable “sensing beyond the visible” to reveal threats that might otherwise remain unseen or blend into the environment, the officials said.

The office works closely with the Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate to identify, invest in, develop and transition technologies and systems that show the most potential for enhancing the effectiveness and survivability of the warfighter, they said.

CACI will provide engineering, logistics and business operations support for the development, manufacture and sustainment of FLIR systems.

This important, continuing work will help develop the next generation of tactical sensors to support our nation’s warfighters in-theater, said Paul Cofoni, CACI president and chief executive officer.

CACI, of Arlington, Va., ranks No. 17 on Washington Technology’s 2008 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
