CACI International will provide satellite communications support to the Army under a $31 million delivery order contract. The award, announced today, requires CACI to help the Army integrate, test and deploy the service’s Trojan satellite communications systems.
The Army Communication-Electronics Research Development and Engineering Center’s Intelligence and Information Directorate made the award. CACI personnel will provide systems design and engineering, provide hardware and software support, and assist in the deployment of system upgrades.
The award marks the latest in a series of Trojan-related delivery orders for CACI.
CACI’s project falls under the $500 million Technical, Engineering, Fabrication, and Operations Support contract. CACI won a slot on that multiple-award contract in 2000. The contract provides a range of engineering and support services including research and development and infrastructure support, according to the company.
The Trojan program involves rapidly deployable mobile communications systems that can be mounted on Humvees or aircraft such as the C-130. Another program component is the Trojan Special Purpose Intelligence Remote Integrated Terminal (SPIRIT), a satellite terminal that offers secure access for intelligence processing and dissemination systems.
Defense Department officials have pointed to Trojan SPIRIT as one of the Pentagon’s technology-based intelligence successes in Afghanistan.
