CACI International has won a potential five-year, $125 million contract to help the Navy operate electronic communication systems that the service branch uses in crisis response efforts.

The Pentagon said Wednesday that one other company bid for the contract that goes by the acronym CRIC-ES: Crisis Response and Interoperable Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Combat Electronic Systems.

Reston, Virginia-headquartered CACI will be responsible for developing and providing the products to facilitate communications and knowledge transfer functions at crisis locations around the world. Naval Air Systems Command also wants to update and modify its current lineup of CRIC-ES products.

CACI's work will specifically support a NAVAIR team known as the Special Communications Mission Solutions division, which is responsible for the interoperability and connectivity of communication systems used for crisis response.
