CACI wins $446m contract for US Air Force Satellite Control Network


CACI International has won a $446m contract to provide operations, maintenance, and sustainment of the US Air Force Satellite Control Network (AFSCN).

The seven-year consolidated AFSCN modifications, maintenance, and operations (CAMMO) contract will expand CACI’s presence in the command and control market area.

CACI US Operations chief operating officer and president John Mengucci said: "We understand the Space and Missile Systems Center's mission and the critical role it plays in our nation's defence.

"CACI is committed to bringing innovation, transparency, and outstanding project performance to the Space and Missile Systems Center and to all our customers."

“Our approach will speed the delivery of innovation to the centre, implement efficient processes, and enable faster response to changes in defence priorities."

Combining three different efforts into a vertically integrated contract, it will support the US Air Force Space Command (AFSPC) Space and Missile Systems Center (SMC).

The centre is responsible for on-orbit check-out, testing, sustainment, and maintenance of military satellite constellations as well as other Department of Defense space systems.

CACI president and CEO Ken Asbury said: "CACI is committed to bringing innovation, transparency, and outstanding project performance to the Space and Missile Systems Center and to all our customers.

“As we successfully implement this new programme, we will expand the support we provide to command and control, and large-scale global space systems sustainment programmes."

CACI’s contract will assist SMC by providing launch, remote tracking station, and satellite control network operations, maintenance, and sustainment, including software engineering.

Initially, the CAMMO contract was proposed by L-3 National Security Solutions, which was acquired by CACI on 1 February this year.

Harris will provide operations and maintenance services as a subcontractor to CACI on this contract.
