US: CACI has been awarded a USD 21 million task order contract to provide business, logistics, and engineering services for US Army Product Director (PD), Initialisation (formerly Product Director Tactical Network Initialisation). The contract award, which is for one base year and one option year, was awarded under the Army's Strategic Services Sourcing (S3) contract vehicle during CACI's third quarter of its fiscal year 2014, ending March 31, 2014. This ongoing work expands CACI's growth in its C4ISR (command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance) market area.
PD Initialisation provides data products in support of network operations and connectivity for the Army Battle Command System, which is a digital command, control, communications, computers, and intelligence (C4I) system that includes a mix of fixed, semi-fixed, and mobile networks and is designed for interoperability with US and Coalition C4I systems. CACI's services will help advance the integration of systems and tools for PD Initialisation and migrate them to a more fully automated environment. This will allow Army units to take full advantage of the capabilities provided by their battlefield communications networks throughout all echelons, from battalion through theater commands. CACI's support services will include research and engineering development, prototyping, demonstrations, integration, fielding, and support for product/software, systems engineering, and logistics. CACI's broad-based, best-value C4ISR capabilities focus on quality and affordability, with solutions engineered for cost-effective deployment and sustainment across the lifecycle.
