CACI International Inc (NYSE:CACI) announced today that it has been awarded a $22 million task order under the Global Battlestaff and Program Support (GBPS) prime contract to support the U.S. Special Operations Forces Planning, Rehearsal and Execution Preparation (SOFPREP) effort. This five-year (one base period with four option periods) award will provide modeling and simulation data for a variety of Special Operations Forces (SOF) rotary and fixed-wing aircraft and other specialized vehicles. CACI’s approach to this work will enhance the U.S. Special Operations Command’s (USSOCOM) capability to conduct critical training more efficiently and to more thoroughly prepare our forces for operational missions.
SOFPREP produces and maintains 3D scene visualization databases and enhanced geospatial data (maps, imagery, and terrain) for SOF simulators in USSOCOM with personnel and facilities located at Hurlburt Field, FL and Fort Campbell, KY. With the new contract, CACI will provide databases in a variety of formats for SOF simulators, and establish and manage a data center to store and archive information. The data in this extensive repository can be accessed throughout the entire USSOCOM community.
Several factors were key to this strategically important win. The CACI team applied its extensive experience in the modeling and simulation and geospatial intelligence arenas to expand and improve SOFPREP capabilities. And, it offered technological enhancements that will enable SOFPREP to better support Special Operations forces.
Dan Allen, CACI President of U.S. Operations, said, “We’re particularly proud of this win because the effort involved contributions from across CACI and our partner companies, emphasizing the broad range of our collective skill sets and capabilities. Our solution blends operational understanding, proven technical experience, and in-depth understanding of SOFPREP programs to ensure full mission capability with no interruptions in mission coverage.”
According to Paul Cofoni, CACI President and Chief Executive Officer, “This award is important to us, as it significantly enhances our wide-ranging portfolio of solutions in the modeling and simulation world. Of equal consequence to all of us at CACI is that this new work with the Special Operations community will directly help our forces prepare for missions, execute them efficiently, and come home safely.”
