The Navy has awarded CACI International Inc. a four-year, $9.8 million contract renewal to continue providing electronic defense system support, the company announced today.
Under the contract, Arlington, Va.-based CACI will provide sensor network engineering, integrated logistics and test evaluation services in support of a naval electronic defense system known as the Cooperative Engagement Capability. The company also will evaluate and integrate new technologies for enhanced system interoperability.
The contracting authority for the project is the Naval Surface Warfare Center's Port Hueneme Division.
The Cooperative Engagement Capability integrates data from a network of sensors on Navy ships and aircraft to create a single common air defense tactical display or 'air picture.' The system enables early detection and more consistent tracking of air threats and contacts.
The award, which was made as a task order under the SeaPort Enhanced contract vehicle [see GCN story
], extends work CACI began in 1998. The company will perform the work in California and Virginia, and on board Navy ships and aircraft worldwide. William Welsh is a senior writer for
