CACI has entered a five-calendar year cooperative research and progress arrangement with the U.S. Army House and Missile Defense Technological Centre to development several technologies initiatives to assist the progress of payload technologies, house sensor purposes and resilient positioning, navigation and timing tools.
The partnership follows CACI’s announcement of a 2023 satellite start to test a multi-mission smaller satellite payload and demonstrate the capabilities of software program-described radio-centered modules that can be personalized for distinct missions, the Reston, Virginia-dependent company introduced on Monday.
Todd Probert, president of nationwide security and impressive remedies at CACI and two-time Clean100 Award winner, claimed that the mission-verified, ground-centered systems incorporated in these payloads are designed exclusively for place area functions.
“They allow improved resiliency and stability by small measurement, excess weight and electricity software program-defined programs,” he elaborated.
Two software program-defined technological innovation apps built to allow precise, resilient PNT and tactical indicators intelligence abilities in minimal earth orbit are incorporated in the prepared start.
The PNT payload will tutorial precision positioning and navigation although delivering improved GPS-impartial earth-space time synchronization, which can be harnessed to deliver higher-precision geolocation expert services in proliferated LEO constellations, strengthen GPS trustworthiness and empower augmentation in GPS-denied or degraded environments.
At the similar time, the tactical ISR payload is designed to collect, geolocate, demodulate and decode electronic cell radio alerts.
USASMDC-TC has deemed collaborating in the method to evaluate these technologies for use in army functions.
Now, CACI is dependable for producing laser communications, laser sensing, artificial intelligence and safe communication technologies underneath the settlement.
The firm is also supporting the Army Futures Command with study and improvement operate. Beneath a $54.6 million deal, CACI is supplying the command’s Confident Positioning, Navigation, Timing and Area Cross Practical Staff in Alabama with advice on pinpointing research and enhancement alternatives to further Military modernization initiatives.
CACI is sponsoring GovCon Wire’s 3rd annual Air Force IT Modernization Forum, which will join IT and engineering experts to explore troubles and alternatives influencing the long term of Air Pressure IT on March 21. To learn more and sign-up to go to, visit GovCon Wire’s activities web site.
