The Army will continue to receive electronic sensors developed by CACI International Inc. to use to lock on targets and give troops better battlefield awareness through an 18-month, $39 million contract.
Under the contract, CACI of Arlington, Va., will assist in the development, integration, and testing of both airborne and ground vehicle sensors systems for the Army's Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate.
The contract increases the scope of services that CACI already is providing to the directorate and also expands CACI's support for Army programs in command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, known as C4ISR. The directorate provides research and development of night vision and other sensor technologies.
The sensor systems include infrared weapons sighting systems that enable warfighters to lock on to targets, as well as systems that enable troops inside vehicles and aircraft to monitor the vicinity in which they operate without exposing themselves to additional risk.
The company will apply its modeling and simulation expertise to model systems in development, enabling the Army to evaluate and refine system designs before committing to the time and cost of implementation.Doug Beizer is a staff writer for
