CACI an Awardee of $50 Million Simulation Contract to Support Joint Warfare System for Secretary of Defense
Arlington, Va., February 4, 2002 — CACI International Inc (NASDAQ:CACI) announced today that it has been chosen as one of the awardees in a suite of blanket purchase agreements (BPAs) valued at $50 million over five years to continue supporting the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) in developing, maintaining, and providing user support for the Joint Warfare System (JWARS), a modeling and simulation program for the armed forces. The contract was awarded through the General Services Administration Federal Supply Service Information Technology Schedule for one base year and five option years. CACI's winning team includes as major subcontractors Computer Sciences Corporation, Lockheed Martin Information Systems, Logicon (now part of Northrop Grumman Information Technology), and Sonalysts, Incorporated. The award builds on CACI's legacy modeling and simulation expertise and continues the company's ongoing expansion of its Department of Defense support.
JWARS provides computer simulations of complex battlefield environments, including entire theaters of war and all joint and enemy forces. The system is used by OSD, the armed services, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and combat commanders-in-chief worldwide. Users can simulate multiple scenarios to determine the best way to deploy forces, weapons, and supplies, for example deciding whether a conflict should be limited to air strikes or if and when ground forces should be introduced. Moreover, with its ability to simulate weapon performance under different conditions, JWARS also supports trade-off analysis of current vs. future weapon systems.
CACI helped to pioneer the development of modeling and simulation systems for the military in the early 1960s when the company introduced SIMSCRIPT, the world's first simulation programming language. Since then, CACI has consistently upgraded its modeling and simulation technology, incorporating state-of-the-art software developments and best practices. The company now supports a wide range of simulation programs for both joint and individual military services, amassing expertise that strengthens its ability to meet JWARS requirements effectively and on time. CACI's ability to reuse software that has already proven effective on related simulation systems also offers OSD savings in software development time and cost.
"CACI brings in-depth technical and functional understanding to the Joint Warfare System," said Ken Johnson, CACI's President of U.S. Operations. "These capabilities enable us to provide effective, timely, and low-risk solutions for simulating military campaigns. Joint commanders can test battle plans and choose the ideal mix of forces and weapons before committing to deployment — giving them a powerful tool for military strategy in an easy-to-use desktop environment."
According to CACI Chairman and CEO, Dr. J.P. (Jack) London, "CACI's successful recompete of the Joint Warfare System continues our partnership with the Office of the Secretary of Defense. Modeling and simulation is a core competency of CACI, a legacy strength we continue to build on as part of our overall strategy of offering progressive technology to support the varied missions of the Defense Department."
