The US Army has awarded a potential five-year contract to CACI International to support its efforts in tackling the risk from commercial-based technology threats.

The task order is valued at as much as $443m and was awarded under US General Services Administration’s OASIS contract vehicle.

CACI will help the army in ‘prototyping, replicating, and exploiting emerging commercial-based threats’.

The company will deliver the services in support of the Army Combat Capabilities Development Command’s (CCDC) Command, Control, Computers, Communications, Cyber, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C5ISR) Center.

CACI International president and CEO John Mengucci said: “US adversaries continue to endanger our service members by modifying off-the-shelf products.

“The unique expertise and critical technology CACI provides will assist the army in defeating these asymmetric threats.”

The company provides customers with reverse engineering, prototype development, and technical intelligence services. The US Army has used the capabilities to counter modified commercial threats.

CACI executive chairman Dr JP London said: “Today, the US faces a more complex multi-domain battlefield than ever before. CACI is prepared to provide the innovative capabilities our military requires to safeguard and support America’s warfighters.”

In May, CACI won a $415m Exploit, Enhance, Enable, and Influence (E3I) support services contract to develop and deploy intelligence systems for the US Army.

The company also won a potential $880m task order from the army to provide information technology and engineering services for its personnel and force management systems.
