CACI International has been tasked with modeling and simulation systems development for sensor and imaging systems for the U.S. Army’s Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate, or NVESD.

The new contract is set over a three-year period with a ceiling value of $173 million. It is part of the Rapid Response – Third Generation (R2-3G) contract vehicle, an IDIQ contract awarded to support the U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Command (CECOM).

“CACI has a long history of supporting the Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate with innovative technical, management, and engineering solutions,” said CACI COO John Mengucci. “We couple this experience with specialized modeling and simulation expertise that assures the Directorate of the rapid and effective development of sensor system technologies and training.”

Also known as the Night Vision Lab, NVESD conducts research for advanced night vision, infrared weapon sights and surveillance systems, and other sensor technologies out of its Fort Belvoir, Virginia location. One of its main goals being to improve U.S. Armed Forces in nighttime and limited visibility conditions.

This is where CACI steps in. Under the contract, CACI will provide modeling and simulation services in evaluating the effectiveness of sensor system technology.

“CACI is proud to continue our partnership supporting the Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate’s mission of delivering vital reconnaissance and surveillance capabilities to our military men and women,” said CACI CEO Ken Asbury. “As asymmetric warfare remains a reality around the globe, we are more dedicated than ever to advancing solutions and technologies that give our Armed Forces an operational advantage under any and all conditions.”

CACI will assist in technology that looks to increase armed forces’ reconnaissance, surveillance and target acquisition capabilities.
