CACI Awarded $23 Million Contract to Support the Office of Naval Research
Company Expertise to Facilitate Implementation of Technology in Surveillance, Communications, Command and Control, and Electronic Warfare
Arlington, Va., October 19, 1999 -- CACI International Inc (NASDAQ: CACI) today announced that it has been awarded a five-year, multi-award, task order prime contract, with a maximum contract value of $23 million, by the Office of Naval Research (ONR) in Arlington, Virginia. The contract calls for CACI to provide technical, engineering, and technical research support services. Under the contract terms, as the ONR researches specific issues that could impact Fleet readiness, CACI will partner with the ONR to bring relevant technology solutions to bear for application to Navy and Marine Corps units in the field, especially in the areas of surveillance capabilities, communications, command and control, and electronic warfare. CACI will perform the work at ONR and CACI locations in the northern Virginia area.
The ONR coordinates, executes, and promotes Navy and Marine Corps science and technology programs through universities, government laboratories, and private sector organizations. Its mission includes supplying technical advice to the Chief of Naval Operations and the Secretary of the Navy, as well as working with industry to improve technology manufacturing processes while reducing Fleet costs.
CACI offers the ONR in-depth experience with the Navy coupled with proven technology and research expertise, especially in surveillance capabilities, communications, command and control, and electronic warfare. The company will focus primarily on evaluating new technology and supporting its transition to current Fleet systems and operations. This includes determining system performance specifications, identifying and resolving interface problems, developing test requirements, evaluating test data, and overseeing test design and other engineering support services. CACI will also provide systems engineering and integration services to bring new technologies to legacy systems and support advanced technology demonstrations.
For the ONR, CACI's participation helps speed the development of enhanced technology to the Fleet, improving overall performance as well as the ability to respond to threats. CACI expertise will support the ONR in achieving savings in development time and cost, and the company will also provide assistance in working with other Services to avoid duplicating technology efforts.
CACI, Inc. President Ken Johnson noted that "The Office of Naval Research contract allows CACI to provide leading-edge information technology — helping to field the kind of solutions necessary to meet client needs. We're getting an earlier start on technology as it transitions from basic research to real-world use. Moreover, our demonstrated experience with Navy systems and capabilities give the ONR a reliable bridge between the scientific development of technology and its application in the real world."
Dr. J.P. (Jack) London, CACI Chairman and CEO, stated, "This new contract with the Office of Naval Research is another example of how our November 1998 QuesTech acquisition is helping CACI expand into new capabilities and markets. Our rich functional knowledge of the Navy, combined with our information warfare capabilities, assures the ONR of high-quality research support while continuing our move forward to meet ambitious financial and growth goals for the new millennium."
