(Arlington, VA., August 12, 2010) -- CACI International Inc (NYSE:CACI) announced today that it has been awarded one of six prime positions covering all fourteen requirement areas included in a new program supporting the U.S. Navy's Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane (NSWC Crane). The multiple award, five-year Basic Ordering Agreement (BOA) has a potential value of $49 million. The BOA calls for CACI to provide wide ranging support for basic science and/or engineering research and development work at the Navy facility located in Crane, Indiana. The new work is an extension of CACI's ongoing research, development, test, and evaluation efforts at the Center.
The award will help increase the Navy's sensor, weapons systems, and associated logistics capabilities with support from CACI's functional core competencies in C4ISR (command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance) and logistics support analysis.
NSWC Crane is the third largest Navy installation in the world. The facility provides comprehensive support for complex military systems spanning development, deployment, and sustainment in three mission areas: electronic warfare/information operations, special missions, and strategic missions. The Center leverages its unique technical capabilities and those of its industry partners to provide rapid response, technical solutions to meet the mission needs of the warfighter.
Under the BOA, support for research and development efforts will focus on traditional science and engineering disciplines to address issues of critical concern to NSWC Crane. CACI's primary areas of support will include special operations hardware, energy and power systems, defense security systems, electro-optics systems, and logistics activities at NSWC Crane's electronics depot. CACI is one of the few vendors with the depth and breadth of technical capability to be able to provide basic science, engineering research, and development work across all of NSWC Crane's fourteen critical disciplines.
According to Bill Fairl, CACI's President of U.S. Operations, "The Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane is developing some outstanding capabilities for warfighters. This award allows CACI to increase our contribution to these essential efforts with everything from additional R&D support, to building equipment prototypes, and installing aircraft electro-optic systems."
CACI President and CEO Paul Cofoni observed that, "The innovative services we provide to this vital command directly support the warfighter. CACI's commitment to using the full potential of our proven expertise in the C4ISR and logistics arenas not only helps assure success for the facility's R&D efforts, it reinforces our role as a national asset for national priorities."
