CACI wins AF environmental-information system deal
The Air Force has hired CACI International Inc. to help integrate its environmental, safety and occupational health management information systems into one IT system. The one-year $32 million contract, awarded by the General Services Administration, has four one-year options.
The contract calls for CACI, of Arlington, Va., to support implementation of the Enterprise Environmental Safety and Occupational Health Management Information System for the Air Force Civil Engineer Support Agency, based at Tyndall Air Force Base, Fla.
CACI plans to open a new facility in nearby Panama City, Fla., where it will perform the work. The company will install and migrate data from legacy systems to the new information management system. CACI also will operate a help desk and train users on the system.
The new automated information system will assemble and store environmental and civil-engineering information.Army has new home station training system in Korea
The initial home station instrumentation training system for the Army at Camp Casey, Korea, has been deployed by Cubic Corp.
The system, established at Camp Casey for the U.S. 8th Army, supports force-on-force engagement training for the Army's mechanized infantry company.
A home station is a unit's military home base in the United States or a training site overseas. Unlike regional combat training centers, they lack infrastructure to support training.
Cubic Defense applications, a unit of the San Diego-based parent company, is delivering home station training systems to U.S. and allied forces under a five-year contract worth $71.7 million. The Army Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation awarded the contract last year.
The system offers battle tracking, data collection and after-action reviews without the need for a fixed infrastructure.
The Camp Casey deployment includes player instrumentation that works in conjunction with laser engagement simulation, observer and controller equipment, and a transportable communications infrastructure. It supports training for dismounted infantry, vehicles, and observers and controllers. It can be expanded to integrate with more than 2,000 warfighters and 8,000 virtual and constructive entities.
