ARLINGTON, Va., 29 Sept. 2005. CACI International Inc. announced today that it has been awarded a five-year, indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract with an estimated value of $9 million to support Generic Reconfigurable Training Systems (GRTS) for the Naval Air Systems Command in Orlando, Fla.

CACI is one of five vendors awarded the contract, which has an overall value of $45 million over one base year and four option years.

Under the terms of the award, CACI will deliver modeling and simulation support for GRTS that provide computer-aided intelligent training systems and training on damage control systems for the Navy.

The Navy's GRTS program enables training modules to be created and adapted for specific purposes quickly and efficiently. With their innovative simulation components, GRTS provides training and practice techniques that allow users to become proficient in applications even without hands-on experience.

CACI's role includes a focus on GRTS support for shipboard intelligent tutoring systems, an innovative type of training that provides individualized instruction via a "virtual" tutor. The company will also support PC-based training systems and damage control systems for hull, mechanical, and electrical systems. Benefits to the Navy include the ability to train personnel whenever and wherever they are deployed, with self-directed programs that allow individuals to work at their own pace. Navy users can better train on new technologies and enhance their ability to upgrade job skills.

Paul Cofoni, CACI's president of U.S. operations, said, "CACI offers outstanding technical expertise and a deep functional understanding of the U.S. Navy's requirements. This enables us to provide key support in helping the Navy migrate from single-purpose, hardware-intensive training systems to more flexible and software-based, rapidly reconfigurable systems that save money and increase productivity."

CACI's chairman, president, and CEO Dr. J.P. (Jack) London said, "CACI's support of the Navy has deep roots, going back more than 40 years. We offer expertise based on 43 years in the modeling and simulation business. CACI was a pioneer in the modeling and simulation business, and we are honored to apply our proven solutions for the Navy. We are keenly aware of the role the Navy plays in the war on terrorism, and we continue to position our solutions to meet the demands of modern-day Naval forces."
