The Army has awarded CACI [CACI] new deal worth up to $443 million to help the service develop and prototype capabilities to fight adversaries’ use of threats built from commercial technologies.

CACI is tasked with providing methodologies to reverse engineer new techniques to better identify commercial-based threats, which includes systems such as small unmanned aircraft systems.

“U.S. adversaries continue to endanger our service members by modifying off-the-shelf products. The unique expertise and critical technology CACI provides will assist the Army in defeating these asymmetric threats,” CACI CEO John Mengucci said in a statement.

Under the five-year task order, awarded under GSA’s OASIS contract vehicle, CACI will assist the Army Combat Capabilities Development Command’s C5ISR center with prototyping new countermeasure tools to exploit commercially-based threats. 

CACI said its technical assistance includes providing intelligence capabilities to analyze these types of threats “both in the lab and in the field.”

“Today, the United States faces a more complex multi-domain battlefield than ever before. CACI is prepared to provide the innovative capabilities our military requires to safeguard and support America’s warfighters,” J.P. London, CACI’s executive chairman, said in a statement.
