CACI International Inc. has been awarded a $51 million task order to provide software development support to the Air Force component of U.S. Cyber Command.
The 3-year task order, awarded through the Network-Centric Solutions-2 contract vehicle, will support 90th Cyberspace Operations Squadron, a subordinate unit of the 24th Air Force, and represents the continuation of existing business for CACI, the company said.
“This win reinforces CACI’s strong relationship with our U.S. Air Force customers and continues CACI’s key role at the forefront of delivering cyber training for America’s military,” CACI President and CEO Ken Asbury said. “We remain committed to providing the innovative solutions and services our government customers need to keep our nation safe.”
The 90th Cyberspace Operations Squadron’s mission includes real-time Air Force cyberattack; real-time Air Force cyber defense; organizing, training and equipping cyber capabilities developers for USCYBERCOM forces; supporting full spectrum cyber operations with non-material solutions; providing training mission rehearsal, concept exploration, and capability assessments; and providing engineering expertise required to create, deploy and support integrated cyber platforms.
Under the contract, CACI will continue to provide software development and operational support for a suite of models, tools and utilities used for computer assisted exercises, known as the Air, Space and Cyberspace Constructive Environment – Information Operations Simulation. CACI will also provide technical and architecture support to the 90th COS Cyber Simulation Center, enabling cyber exercises, training, experimentation, development, and fielding of cyber capabilities. This work builds upon CACI’s extensive experience supporting cyberspace training and simulation software development to ensure U.S. Armed Forces are mission-ready.
“CACI has a proven track record of providing high-quality software development and warfighter training support to this U.S. Air Force customer,” John Mengucci, CACI, chief operating officer, said. “Our work helps equip Air Force cyber warriors with the training needed to counter cyber threats.”
CACI recently gave Mengucci a larger role within the company, granting him leadership of additional core business areas while a new hire, DeEtte Gray, took his old title of president of U.S. operations.
