CACI to bolster Army intell processing capabilities

$24 million award calls for CACI to upgrade Army Common Ground Systems

CACI International Inc. will provide program management and technical engineering services to the Army under a new $24 million task order.

The award calls for CACI to upgrade Common Ground Systems (CGS) with subsystems from the Army’s Distributed Common Ground System-Army (DCGS-A) Ground Mobile system.

The DCGS-A integrates intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance data into a single system to streamline the Army’s ability to process and disseminate the data to commanders in the field, CACI officials said.

The system also allows analysts to gather intelligence data from multiple sources and distribute it through Army battle command applications.

Using this intelligence, field commanders gain a better situational understanding of their environment. This includes visualizing and analyzing imminent threats, predicting threat intentions, and developing countermeasures, the officials said.

The enhanced CGS systems will provide the service with improved ways to receive, process and share intelligence data in a mobile, tactical environment. The CACI team will develop and integrate software and provide life-cycle management for the integrated systems.

The contractor also will perform budget and program financial analysis to assure costs are contained, effectively manage and train users for more effective system use, and provide logistical support for optimal system deployment.

CACI received the 18-month award under its Strategic Services Sourcing (S3)contract with the Army. The contract is new work for the company and increases its work under the S3 contract vehicle, which already totals more than $2 billion in task orders, the officials added.

CACI International, of Arlington, Va., ranks No. 20 on Washington Technology’s 2009 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
