CACI International has secured a contract to provide engineering and technical support to the US Army’s Communications-Electronics Command (CECOM) Software Engineering Center (SEC).
Valued at $86m, the three-year task order contract includes one base and two option years, and was awarded under the CECOM SEC’s software and systems engineering services next-generation (SSES NexGen) programme.
Under the contract, the company will support the control and communications-tactical (C3T) army reprogramming analysis team in developing and fielding software, which will be used in electronic warfare systems to help ground and airborne soldiers to rapidly identify threats on the battlefield and support commanders across the full range of military operations.
CACI president and chief executive officer Ken Asbury said: "This award on the SSES NexGen vehicle continues CACI’s record of success supporting the US Army’s SEC.
"As our fifth award on this contract, it demonstrates the Army’s confidence in our ability to deliver next-generation software that helps commanders make tactical decisions based on the changing warfighting conditions on the battlefield."
Managed by the US Army Contracting Command, the SSES NexGen programme aims to support army systems and software throughout their entire lifecycle, starting from production to deployment and operational support.
Headquartered at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, US, the CECOM SEC provides the software expertise needed to support the army command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) and logistics systems.
