The US Army has awarded Caci International a contract to continue its support for the Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Centre (Cerdec ) Intelligence and Information Warfare Directorate (I2WD).

The indefinite delivery / indefinite quantity contract awarded through Technical Engineering Support Services (Tess ) continues 21 years of CACI support for I2WD under ETOSS and predecessor programmes.

CACI is one of three companies awarded the five-year contract with a ceiling value of $900m.

Under the contract, CACI will support CERDEC I2WD and provide scientific and engineering support to assist I2WD in its mission to modernise army intelligence and information warfare capabilities and providing mission-critical support to warfighters worldwide.

CACI will work on researching, prototyping and developing systems for improved intelligence collection through the use of networked sensors.

The TESS award is an addition to the engineering, technical and operations support services (ETOSS) contract that CACI has held since 2006.
