CACI Wins $514 Million Task Order to Modernize U.S. Army Networks


Reading time ( words)

CACI International Inc. announced that it was awarded a new five-year (one-year base and four one-year options), single-award task order, with a potential value of $514 million, to provide network modernization of outside plant (OSP) infrastructure and facilities across major U.S. Army locations within the continental United States. CACI engineers, managers, and technicians will deliver enterprise technology to enhance capabilities and improve capacity needed for an underground fiber optic cable infrastructure required to support robust, reliable, high-speed voice, video and data networks for critical command and control systems.

As part of the OSP task order, awarded under the GSA’s Alliant 2 contract vehicle, CACI will engineer, furnish, install, and test (EFI&T) a turnkey solution to upgrade the existing OSP infrastructure and facilities at a minimum of 40 different military installations using industry best practices.

John Mengucci, CACI President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “CACI’s understanding and unique OSP knowledge will ensure that this modernization maximizes the Army’s current infrastructure, evolves to incorporate the latest network standards, and supports Army communications for software, data and analytics at scale as well as network security. Working with the Army, we will effectively deliver higher reliability and survivability supporting all missions with near-zero downtime” 

With more than 30 years of solid past performance and advanced network modernization capabilities, strengthened through CACI’s acquisition of LGS Innovations, this new task order further expands CACI’s current global OSP efforts providing repeatable infrastructure solutions that support current and future communications, command and control, and other requirements.

DoD Faces Growing Risks from Reliance on Lead in Electronics

12/13/2021 | Chris Peters, USPAE
Like a cancer that spreads untreated until it becomes an urgent problem, the U.S. defense community is facing a small but growing problem that is increasingly undermining U.S. military readiness and technological dominance. The problem is lead—specifically, the lead-alloy solders that traditionally have been used to attach electronic components to printed circuit boards (PCBs). Over the last 15 years, the commercial electronics industry has shifted to lead-free solders, prompted by environmental health regulations in Europe and elsewhere. However, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and its contractors never made the switch and are still heavily reliant on leaded solders. Now, leaded electronics are becoming harder to find and more outdated.
