ARLINGTON, Va., Sept. 2 (UPI) -- CACI is participating in a $40 million program to give the U.S. National Air and Space Intelligence Center signals intelligence engineering support services

Under the five-year multiple award, CACI will provide technical, engineering, and analysis support in the areas of technical SIGINT -- technical electronic intelligence, and command, control, and communications data links -- and analysis infrastructure.

"This new work with the National Air and Space Intelligence Center provides a strategically important opportunity for CACI to use our expertise to help NASIC achieve its mission requirements," said Bill Fairl, CACI's president of U.S. Operations. "The contract enables us to reinforce our long-standing commitment to enhance the center's unmatched analytic capabilities."

NASIC is the Department of Defense's primary source to assess foreign air and space threats. The Center performs SIGINT activities to support operational forces, defense acquisition efforts and national policy and decision makers.

SIGINT analysis is conducted by NASIC analysts, and the results are incorporated into all-source threat assessments, used to construct engineering models and provided directly to intelligence end-users.

CACI is one of three companies tapped by NASIC for the contract.
