CACI International has secured a new task order to develop rapid response electronic communications systems for the US Navy’s Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD).
The five-year task order has a ceiling value of $122m and was awarded by the US General Services Administration (GSA) Federal Systems Integration and Management Center (FEDSIM).
CACI will conduct the full lifecycle development of interoperable systems and solutions to support the NAWCAD’s Special Communications Mission Solutions (SCMS) division under the deal, including rapid prototyping, fabrication, fielding and maintenance works.
The new solutions are intended to facilitate the transfer of communications and knowledge across the US Department of Defense (DoD) and other federal, state and local agencies during crisis and emergency events worldwide.
CACI International president and chief executive officer Ken Asbury said: “During times of crisis, ensuring communications among diverse groups of responders is frequently a matter of life and death.
“CACI has long supported the fast pace of global emergency missions with innovative engineering, rapid prototyping, and timely delivery of high-quality advanced communications systems.”
The Crisis Response and Interoperable Command, Control, Communications, and Computers (C4) Electronic Systems (CRIC-ES) task order was awarded under the GSA’s One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services (OASIS) contract vehicle.
The project will see the company support legacy, current and next-generation CRIC-ES products such as emergency management response systems, public safety networks, enterprise land mobile radios and agency interoperable communications, including ultra-high frequency (UHF), very-high frequency (VHF), satellite, audio-visual and radio systems.
