CACI International Inc. (NYSE: CACI) has been awarded a $20.4 million contract to provide technology, research, development and innovation in support of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Mission Integrated Network Controlprogram (MINC).
The MINC relies software-defined network (SDN) heterogeneous network intelligent remote control technology. This mission technology contract was awarded during the third quarter of CACI’s fiscal year 2022.
CACI will build and demonstrate software that creates a secure network to provide command and control of heterogeneous networks. The seamless platform provides an overarching framework that can facilitate the use of resources across departments, supporting missions in support of Joint command and control of all domains (JADC2).
The MINC program will address three key challenges that tactical networks face today when operating in extreme network environments: the lack of network interoperability between heterogeneous large-scale communication systems; insufficient network capacity to support missions; and the inability to autonomously reconfigure networks to align with military missions.
“Resilient command, control and communications on the multi-domain battlefield are essential as our adversaries seek to disrupt critical networks,said Major-General (retired) Pete Gallagher, Senior Vice President Technology and Solutions at CACI. “This program establishes an operational framework for resilient interdepartmental communications that adapt and grow autonomously at mission speed.”
