CACI International has received a contract from the US Navy to continue offering logistics and acquisition management support to the Naval Sea Systems Command’s (NAVSEA) programme executive office littoral combat ship (PEO LCS).
Under the 14-month, $44m deal, the company will support the littoral mission by offering logistics and acquisition support services such as project planning, technical analysis and business and financial management.
CACI CEO and US Operations president John Mengucci said: "Large ship programmes entail many complex challenges in the areas of logistics, operations and sustainment, and we have the acquisition, logistics and operational expertise to help the customer continue attaining all programme objectives."
PEO LCS is tasked with acquiring and maintaining the end-to-end mission potential of LCSs, which are the navy’s latest vessels intended for use in close-to-shore operations, mainly anti-access and asymmetric risks.
In addition, the unit is responsible for development, procurement, deployment and sustainment of systems and services for the automated vessels as well as for their mission packages that deploy unmanned maritime systems.
CACI president and CEO Ken Asbury said: "Combating asymmetric threats is a clear national priority and CACI has responded with its work on innovative programmes such as the US navy’s littoral combat ships.
"With our on-going support for this programme countering asymmetric challenges close to shore, we will continue to help provide the multi-dimensional, nuanced approaches necessary to tackle this problem in an effective, appropriate, and timely fashion."
