CACI wins SCRD delivery order
CACI has announced the award of a $139 million delivery order for its continued support for the Special Communications Requirements Division (SCRD) of the US Naval Air Warfare Center-Aircraft Division. The contract, announced 31 October 2011, will see CACI continue the designing, testing, and integration of mobile communications systems for the Department of Defense (DoD) and other federal agencies.
According to the statement, CACI will manufacture and ingrate command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems for the SCRD ‘into everything from suitcase-sized units to vehicles and battlefield command posts’, as well as providing lifecylce support for the systems, retrofitting them with up-to-date technology, and delivering on-site training.
The SCRD supports full-spectrum systems engineering and serves as the Navy's communications electronics expert on small and large craft, commercial and militarized vehicles, transit cases, and fixed base stations. It provides deployable C4ISR systems to DOD clients that directly support the warfighter, as well as to organizations involved in homeland security, including the Department of State and National Guard.
