CACI awarded laser contract with US Air Force Research Laboratory

Date Announced: 21 Oct 2021

To Develop Multi-Spectral Laser Technology for Electro-Optic Sensors.

RESTON, Va., USA -- CACI International Inc. (NYSE: CACI) has announced that the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio (AFRL) awarded CACI a 15-month, $4.9 million program to advance high-power multi-spectral laser technology in support of improved electro-optical sensors for a variety of military missions.
 
Under the contract, CACI scientists and engineers will develop a high-power laser prototype that emits light over a very broad range of wavelengths in the optical spectrum, spanning a range that goes from the UV spectrum, through the visible spectrum, and into the Short-Wavelength Infrared (SWIR).

John Mengucci, CACI President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “We are seeing a strong demand for high-performance lasers that support enhanced functionality for remote sensing systems. Our technology will continue to advance the state of the art with programs like this and bring best-in-class solutions for the Air Force’s current and future needs.”
