Japan's military is lagging in terms of its digitisation, but a smart base experiment could begin to turn the tide.
CACI wins JIEDDO support contract
CACI International has been awarded a contract to provide support services to the US Department of Defense's Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization's (JIEDDO) J9 division.
The three-year, $34 million contract, announced by CACI on 23 April, will see the company provide deployed and on-site analytic support to the JIEDDO J9 division.
JIEDDO's J9 division conducts Operations Research and Systems Analysis (ORSA) to counter Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) as weapons of strategic influence. CACI will provide deployed personnel to conduct ORSA support and supply non-deployed ORSA and geospatial analysis support to enhance understanding of IEDs and enable JIEDDO to make analytically derived and informed decisions on how to minimise their impact.
John Mengucci, chief operating officer and president of US operations, CACI, said: 'CACI has the proven processes and agile, experienced staff in place to help safeguard global operational forces and ensure mission success for our valued customers in the intelligence community.'
Ken Asbury, president and CEO, CACI, said: 'Assisting our military in protecting the US armed forces from ubiquitous threats such as IEDs has always been one of CACI's highest priorities. This contract with the JIEDDO, a longtime customer of ours, enables us to continue that critical support while expanding our business in our integrated security solutions market area.'
