CACI International Inc has been selected as a prime contractor to provide lifecycle sustainment, integration, acquisition, and technical support for Naval Electronic Surveillance Systems (NESS) to the U.S. Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Pacific (SSC Pacific) Security Systems Branch.
The three-year, multiple-award contract has a base value of $42 million and includes two one-year options for a potential ceiling value of $71 million. This is one of three contracts awarded; each awardee will have the opportunity to compete for task orders during the ordering period. This contract represents new work for CACI and expands its presence in its C4ISR (command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance) market.
Headquartered in San Diego, Calif., SSC Pacific is the Navy’s premier research, development, test, and evaluation laboratory for C4ISR systems. Under the terms of the contract, CACI will provide lifecycle support for Anti-Terrorism/Force Protection (AT/FP) electronic surveillance systems to the Department of Defense and other government agencies such as the Department of Homeland Security.
CACI has decades of experience successfully meeting mission-essential requirements around the globe and supporting AT/FP programs such as the U.S. Army’s Genesis III and the U.S. Coast Guard’s International Port Security and Assessments. Additionally, CACI has the processes and management procedures in place to deliver increased security protection for military and civilian agencies while meeting requirements on time and at or below budget.
John Mengucci, CACI’s Chief Operating Officer and President of U.S. Operations, said, “This contract supporting C4ISR systems for the U.S. Navy leverages CACI’s in-depth expertise in lifecycle sustainment, integration, acquisition, and technical support. Our work will aid federal agencies in detecting, identifying, and thwarting potential global and domestic threats to our nation’s security.”
According to CACI President and Chief Executive Officer Ken Asbury, “CACI’s new work with the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Pacific supports one of our government’s highest priorities – to protect our nation’s people, facilities, and equipment. This award demonstrates the value of our intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance solutions to a new customer and further expands our presence in our high-volume C4ISR market area.”
