ARLINGTON, Va., Oct. 28 (UPI) -- The U.S. Army has tapped two U.S. companies to provide support services under task order contracts for capabilities to meet emerging intelligence requirements.
The first, from the Army's Intelligence and Information Warfare Directorate, was given to CACI International Inc. for obtaining new tools and systems for collecting and exploiting passive and active signals intelligence as part of the directorate's quick reaction capability.
"CACI's continuing work for the U.S. Army reinforces our proven solutions and services for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance within the C4ISR [command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance] arena," said John Mengucci, CACI's chief operating officer and president of U.S. operations. "Our team will provide quick-reaction support for the Army in developing innovative technologies that deliver intelligence our troops can use to dominate the battlespace."
The company's selection for the prime contract also reinforces its growth strategy in the command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance market area, it said.
The task order is for a one-year period with a one-year extension. Its value is $40 million.
Additional details were not provided.
PAR Government Systems Corp., headquartered in New York State, said it was issued an $85 million technology integration contract by the U.S. Army Contracting Command/Aberdeen Proving Ground Natick Contracting Division.
The three-year, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity task order contract is for the rapid transitioning of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance technologies to forward theaters of operation for both U.S. military and coalition forces.
"PAR is pleased to have been selected to provide advanced ISR solutions in response to urgent mission needs," said Steve Lynch, PAR Government Systems' president. "We pride ourselves on customer satisfaction and understand the critical role we play in supporting our operational customers with transition and integration of emerging state of the art technology in support their requirements,"
