CACI International has won a contract to provide communications systems, satellite communications and network support services to the Naval Information Warfare Center (NIWC) Atlantic in support of US Special Operations Command.

The $199m indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract is valid for five years and six months if all options are exercised.

Under the contract, personnel working with the satellite and network systems will be provided with mission expertise, including fielding and training for maintenance, logistics, operational systems and 24/7 technical support.

The company will support an estimated 2,000 satellite communications systems globally.

It will also provide wide-area network infrastructure services for approximately 90 sites.

To support and enhance the mission, CACI has designed a modern facility in Fayetteville, North Carolina.

Experts of the company have the ability to maintain, assemble and test satellite communications systems at the new facility.

This will maximise the systems’ efficiency and accuracy, and simultaneously support the warfighter with continuous improvements.

CACI president and CEO John Mengucci said: “This recompete award results from the longstanding professional and productive relationship between our dedicated team and NIWC, focused on providing service-members with the critical communications support they need to execute their mission.”

CACI executive chairman and Board chairman Dr J P London said: “As our country continues to face evolving national security threats, CACI remains focused on providing the support our customers rely on to safeguard our nation.”

CACI recently secured a prime position on a multiple-award engineering and acquisition contract awarded by the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA).
