CACI International has secured a contract to provide a range of business, logistics and engineering services for the US Army Product Director (PD) Initialisation.

Awarded under the army’s strategic services sourcing (S3) contract vehicle, the agreement includes one base performance period and one option year, at a maximum potential value of $21m.

CACI will provide support services that will help streamline the integration of data products and tools for PD Initialisation and their subsequent migration to a more fully automated environment.

Specific services will include research and engineering development, prototyping, demonstrations, integration, fielding, and support for product and software, as well as systems engineering and logistics, among others.

CACI chief operating officer and US Operations president John Mengucci said the deal maintains the company’s established relationship with the PD Initialisation.

"This work directly aligns with a key objective of our customer to develop new and emerging network interoperability technologies and apply them to the battlefield."

"By supporting the army’s communications capabilities through all echelons, we enable our troops to more effectively fulfil their missions and return home safely," Mengucci said.

CACI president and chief executive officer Ken Asbury said the company’s technical experience and mission understanding are important components in advancing the army’s critical operations.

"This work directly aligns with a key objective of our customer to develop new and emerging network interoperability technologies and apply them to the battlefield," Asbury said.

Work performed under the contract is expected to enable the army units to take full advantage of the capabilities provided by their battlefield communications networks, from battalion through to theatre commands.

Previously called Product Director Tactical Network Initialisation, PD Initialisation provides data products to support network operations and connectivity for the army’s Battle Command System, a digital command, control, communications, computers and intelligence (C4I) system.

It also provides a mix of fixed, semi-fixed and mobile networks, and is designed for interoperability with the US and coalition C4I systems.
