This two-year (one base plus one option) task order contract further expands CACI's growth in its high-volume C4ISR (command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance) market area.
The I2WD provides intelligence and information warfare tools that equip America's Armed Forces with the integrated systems needed to ensure information dominance.

CACI's QRC service delivery, a model designed specifically for I2WD, and coupled with disciplined and repeatable QRC engineering processes, leadership, and operational insight, assures the Army of fast and efficient development of new intelligence and information warfare systems and tools. The company's extensive experience supporting I2WD gives it significant insight and understanding of the I2WD's technical and operational environment, further assuring that solutions effectively match mission requirements.
John Mengucci, CACI's Chief Operating Officer and President of U.S. Operations, said, "CACI's continuing work for the U.S. Army reinforces our proven solutions and services for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance within the C4ISR arena.
