Aberdeen Proving Ground C4ISR Contract

CACI International : 27 January, 2010  (Application Story)
Relocation of command and control operations to Aberdeen Proving Ground to be undertaken by CACI including the disassembly, packing, transportation and setting up of all systems plus the provision of continuity of operations
CACI International has been awarded an $81 million task order by the US Army to support the transition of Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) resources to the Aberdeen Proving Ground. The move is mandated by the Defence Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Commission. The contract, assuming the option period is exercised, is for a period of 27 months and was awarded under the General Services Administration’s Logistics Worldwide (LOGWORLD) contract vehicle. The new work realigns organizations currently located at Ft. Monmouth, NJ, Ft Belvoir, VA, Eatontown, NJ, Huntsville, AL, and Fort Knox, KY.

The transition includes the planning/preparation, disassembly, transport, and synchronized reconstitution of an array of components involving information technology, systems engineering, and network automation. These actions will cover more than 120 highly technical and complex communications, electronics research, and development laboratories; 100,000 pieces of communications-electronics test equipment, IT equipment, and other components; design, fabrication, and integration facilities; and a broad array of classified equipment and technology.

The CACI team will provide overall project management, client interface and relationship management, and coordinated technical execution of all work elements. The company has been supporting technical work inside a majority of the relocating laboratory facilities for over 20 years and offers significant institutional knowledge of lab operations and supported programs. It is already performing the key BRAC work for the Army’s Communications-Electronics Research, Development, and Engineering Centre (CERDEC) Intelligence and Information Warfare Directorate (I2WD) under another contract from the Army. The new program supports the relocation of all elements of the CERDEC; the Communications-Electronics Command Life Cycle Management Command (CECOM LCMC) headquarters and key organizations (Software Engineering Centre (SEC), the Logistics Readiness Centre (LRC), and the CECOM Contracting Centre (CECC); the Program Executive Office Command, Control and Communications-Tactical (PEO C3T), and related Project Managers; and the Program Executive Office, Intelligence Electronic warfare and Sensors (PEO IEW&S) and related Project Managers, Program Executive Office – Integration (PEO-I) and related Project Managers, and US Army Research Laboratory (ARL).

Bill Fairl, CACI’s President of US Operations, said “This award from the Army to provide BRAC support, following so closely on our win to move classified labs to Aberdeen, is a gratifying vote of confidence in CACI’s ability to provide continuity for the critical C4ISR mission. The consistency, the methodology, the tools, and people are all in place for success.”

According to CACI President and CEO Paul Cofoni, “With this new work, we’re very pleased to help assure the smooth transition to Aberdeen of these vital components to support our troops as they keep our country safe. It’s important to note that a majority of the support in the areas of communications, electronics, and intelligence operations for our nation’s in-theatre efforts emanates from the commands and organizations that will be moving to Aberdeen.”
