Communication Network Support for US Navy

CACI International
: 08 March, 2010  (Application Story)
The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command of the US Navy has chosen CACI to provide technical support on command and control operations to improve efficiencies in getting valid information to the front line
CACI International has been awarded one of five prime contracts to support the US Navyís Space and Naval Warfare Systems Commandís (SPAWAR) command and control (C2) operations. The multiple-award, five-year indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) task order contract was awarded to CACI for a three-year base and two one-year option periods. The contract ceiling for CACIís contract is $588 million. The new award calls for CACI to enhance the commandís communications and networking systems to enable SPAWARís end customer Ė the soldier Ė to gain access to mission critical information more efficiently.

This award allows CACI to offer its enterprise information technology and network services methodology to the customer by bringing common technologies together to meet mission requirements. Work under the contract involves helping the Navy migrate a wide array of legacy command and control applications and support tasks to a more fully integrated service approach. This will allow for an easier, more efficient method of providing tactical data to all users, regardless of diverse formats and delivery methods.
SPAWAR is the Navy's premier Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) command for acquisition and life-cycle management of communications and warfare systems. Under a variety of contracts since 1981, CACI has supported the command with solutions that include software development, enterprise resource planning, network engineering, software testing and certification, and training. This gives CACI in-depth experience in the client's technical environment and user requirements to support work performed under this new contract.

According to Bill Fairl, CACI's President of US Operations, 'We are very pleased that the Navyís Command and Control Program Office has demonstrated its confidence in CACIís people, processes, and tools by awarding us this significant contract to support the soldier. Itís gratifying to be recognized for our record of outstanding past performance, our value-focused approach, and our long tradition of exceptional service to the fleet.'

CACI President and CEO Paul Cofoni observed that, 'With this important award, SPAWAR allows us to expand our already significant presence in the C4ISR community and continue our legacy of technical excellence and support. Enhancing the Navyís IT and network capabilities will play an important role in upgrading command and control operations to better serve the needs of our operating forces as they carry out their missions around the world.'
