CACI International Inc ( NYSE:CACI ) announced today it has been awarded a $32 million contract to provide digital mapping and charting services to the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) under the GEOINT Data Services (GDS) Maritime Atlantic Region program. This four-year (one base plus three option years) contract represents additional work for CACI and expands its presence in its Geospatial market area.
The NGA provides timely, relevant, and accurate geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) to give a decisive advantage to policymakers, warfighters, intelligence professionals, and first responders when reacting to maritime threats and natural disasters. On this contract, CACI will maintain and develop digital and hardcopy maritime products and data sets for the Atlantic region in support of NGA’s Safety of Navigation office. This data will aid the Armed Services in mission planning, navigation of ships, protection of essential infrastructure, and disaster planning and relief.
Through its acquisition of TechniGraphics, Inc. in 2010, CACI has more than 20 years of experience supporting NGA and predecessor organizations and is an industry leader in the production, analysis, and dissemination of geospatial data. Its highly trained, cleared professional staff possesses a deep understanding of geospatial data management and interoperability, data accuracy and integrity, automation, and efficient and cost-effective approaches to managing and delivering geospatial data.
John Mengucci, CACI’s Chief Operating Officer and President of U.S. Operations, said, “Backed by our decades of experience in the geospatial space, CACI has the capability to provide timely and highly accurate nautical charts, maps, and geospatial data to support the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency and the mission needs of its diverse customer base. Our in-depth understanding of NGA’s needs makes us a true mission partner.”
According to CACI President and Chief Executive Officer Ken Asbury, “The fast-paced tempo of world events makes the requirement for timely and accurate geospatial data increasingly important. CACI’s long-standing work for the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, including our services on the GDS Maritime Atlantic Region program, continues to support this essential need while making the seas safer for our nation’s military and allied forces.”
