CACI International Inc. will continue its expansion into network services
with its completed purchase of Network Equipment Technologies Federal Inc.,
CACI International officials announced Wednesday.
NET Federal was a subsidiary of Network Equipment Technologies Inc.,
which is now doing business as net.com. The company provides secure network
services; network engineering, design, installation and integration; and
network maintenance and management.
NET Federal clients include intelligence agencies and major government
departments. The company most recently reported revenue of about $50 million.
The purchase is expected to strengthen CACI's ability to serve as a
single, focused provider of network services.
"The federal services business gives us great gains on a number of fronts,
all central to our ongoing development of network services as a key line
of business," said Jack London, CACI chairman and chief executive officer.
"It increases our ability to provide complete, end-to-end network support,
enhances our capability to deliver information assurance solutions that
maintain secure networks and enables us to provide a higher level of service
to clients in the intelligence community." CACI also announced this week
that it had won a $500 million Army award to modernize the service's intelligence
and information systems and capabilities.
CACI will concentrate on researching and developing systems for:
* Improved intelligence collection through networked sensors.
* Electronic combat capabilities to counter conventional and cyber weapons.
* Information warfare systems capable of mounting offensive operations
as well as protecting defense and national systems.
