ARLINGTON, Va., Nov. 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CACI International Inc (NYSE: CACI) announced today that it has been awarded a $24 million task order to provide program management and technical engineering services to upgrade Common Ground Systems (CGS) with subsystems from the U.S. Army's Distributed Common Ground System-Army (DCGS-A) Ground Mobile system. CACI received the eighteen-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 two billion dollars in task orders.
The DCGS-A integrates intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance data within a single system to streamline the Army's ability to process and disseminate this data to commanders in the field. Using this intelligence information, field commanders gain a better situational understanding of their environment. This includes visualizing and analyzing imminent threats, predicting threat intentions, and developing countermeasures.
The enhanced CGS systems will provide warfighters with improved means of receiving, processing, and sharing intelligence data in a mobile, tactical environment. The CACI team will develop and integrate software and provide lifecycle management for the integrated systems. CACI 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.
Bill Fairl, CACI's President of U.S. Operations, said, "We're pleased that the Army has, once again, shown its confidence in our proven ability to support the Distributed Common Ground System-Army. It's good to know that the solutions our team provides will be actively involved in delivering the intelligence our warfighters need in challenging in-theater operations."
According to CACI President and CEO Paul Cofoni, "For decades, CACI has helped the Armed Forces attain the greatest value from rapidly evolving technology. With the value of our task orders now totaling more than $2 billion under the Army's Strategic Services Sourcing contract vehicle, CACI continues to provide critical support in countering global terrorism."
