USAF Awards CACI $446 Million Contract for Satellite Network Control
[Via Satellite 11-14-2016] The U.S. Air Force (USAF) has awarded CACI International a $446 million prime contract to provide operations, maintenance and sustainment of the U.S. Air Force Satellite Control Network (AFSCN). The single-award, seven-year contract represents new work for CACI, expanding the company’s presence in its command and control market area.
The Consolidated AFSCN Modifications, Maintenance, and Operations (CAMMO) contract combines three different efforts into a single, vertically integrated contract vehicle supporting the U.S. Air Force Space Command (AFSPC) Space and Missile Systems Center (SMC). SMC is responsible for on-orbit check-out, testing, sustainment, and maintenance of military satellite constellations and other Department of Defense (DoD) space systems. The contract will assist SMC in its mission to deliver resilient and affordable space capabilities by providing reliable launch, remote tracking station, and satellite control network operations, maintenance, and sustainment, to include software engineering. The CAMMO contract was initially proposed by L-3 National Security Solutions, which CACI acquired on Feb. 1, 2016, as part of its strategy to enhance CACI’s position as a government solutions and services prime contractor.
