CACI Awarded DARPA Contract for Mission Software Development
Member of the Coalition of Government Technology and Services and mentor partner, CACI International Inc. $ 20.4 million contract awarded to provide technology, research, development and innovation in support of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s (DARPA) Integrated Mission Network Control (MINC) program ).
MINC leverages software-defined networking (SDN) technology for remote and intelligent control of heterogeneous networks.
“Resilient command, control, and communications on the multidomain battlefield are essential as our adversaries seek to disrupt critical networks,” said Commander-in-Chief Pete Gallagher, CACI’s senior vice president of technology and solutions. . “This program establishes an operational framework for resilient communications through services that adapt and advance autonomously at the speed of the mission.”
CACI will create and demonstrate software that creates a secure network to provide command and control of heterogeneous networks. The platform facilitates the use of resources in all services, supporting missions to support the command and joint control of all domains (JADC2).
The MINC program will address three key challenges facing tactical networks today as they operate in extreme network environments: the lack of network interoperability across heterogeneous-scale communications systems; insufficient network capacity to support missions; and the inability to reconfigure networks autonomously to align with military missions.
