The U.S. Army Reserve has awarded CACI, a provider of data solutions and services, a $31 million contract for the company to provide training and simulation support to the Army Reserve Command on the Mission Command Training Support (MCTS) program.
CACI specializes in providing information solutions and services in support of national security missions and government transformation for intelligence, defense and federal civilian clients, the company says.
The contract is for three years and it strengthens CACI’s business in the training and operations arena as well as its presence in the command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) market, the company says.
The Army Reserve Command controls and supports all Army Reserve troop units in the continental United States and prepares them for mobilization and deployment, CACI says. For the MCTS program, CACI will help integrate live and virtual simulations with Army Mission Command systems, giving commanders a better situational understanding of unit activities and capabilities in theater, the firm says. CACI is providing pre- and post-mobilization training support that includes developing scenarios for battle simulations and integrating those scenarios with the reserve command’s digital systems, networks and infrastructure.
“CACI is uniquely suited to support the U.S. Army Reserve Command on the Mission Command Training Support program,” said John Mengucci, the company’s chief operating officer and president of U.S. operations. “Throughout our more than 50-year history, we have excelled at providing modeling and simulation solutions for the Department of Defense and U.S. forces.”
“This new work with the U.S. Army Reserve Command grows CACI’s training capabilities and increases our footprint in our C4ISR market,” said Dan Allen, the company’s president and CEO. “It is a strong demonstration of our success in pursuing new business that aligns with our nation’s highest priorities, in this case, assuring mission readiness for our armed forces.”
