Information technology firm CACI International has announced that it has secured a contract to support the US Army Futures Command (AFC) with mission expertise.
The $54.6m contract requires the company to assist the Assured Positioning, Navigation, Timing, and Space (APNT/Space) Cross Functional Team for the AFC at the Redstone Arsenal post in Alabama.
The company will explore cost-effective options to support the team in identifying and performing key research and development to meet Army modernisation and national security requirements.
The latest deal is part of the US Department of Defense Information Analysis Center’s (DoD IAC) multiple-award contract (MAC) vehicle.
The contracts under DoD IAC MAC are handled by the US Air Force’s 774th Enterprise Sourcing Squadron to create more knowledge resources for the Defense Technical Information Center repository.
In a statement, CACI said that the new contract is a ‘strategic growth’ opportunity for the company in the Huntsville region.
CACI president and chief executive officer John Mengucci said: “CACI is proud to support the critical assured positioning, navigation, and timing (APNT) mission.
“Through this opportunity, we will bring industry-leading mission expertise and innovative ideas to Redstone Arsenal to meet immediate and future warfighter needs.”
In July this year, CACI secured a US Army task order to support its Intelligence and Security Command and the 116th Military Intelligence Brigade with mission expertise.
Worth $80m, the task order was awarded as part of the Army’s Solutions for Intelligence Analysis 3 contract vehicle.
