CACI-Supported Battlefield Sensor System Wins 2002 Grace Hopper Government Technology Leadership Award for Homeland Security.

CACI International Inc announced today that the Improved Remotely Monitored Battlefield Sensor System (I-REMBASS) developed by the Intelligence and Information Warfare Directorate (I2WD) of the Research Development and Engineering Center, Army Communications-Electronics Command, has been awarded Government Executive magazine's 2002 Grace Hopper Government Technology Leadership Award in the category of "Contributing to Advances in Homeland Security and the War on Terrorism." CACI supports the I-REMBASS program, as well as its successor, "Silent Warrior," as part of the Technical Engineering, Fabrication and Operational Support contract in support of I2WD. This support enhances CACI's experience and market presence in developing and supporting technologies for homeland security.

The I-REMBASS nomination was selected over 140 other submissions in the area of homeland security. Now in its 11th year, the Government Technology Leadership Awards program recognizes federal projects and personnel, making exceptional contributions to mission accomplishment, cost effectiveness, and public service. The award is named for former Rear Admiral Grace Hopper, a 43- year Navy veteran committed to technological innovation.

I-REMBASS reinforces perimeter security even in remote access areas, and provides early warning of potential terrorist attacks. CACI provides technical and programmatic support for magnetic, acoustic, infrared, seismic, and radar sensors, as well as other intelligence gathering systems, at sensitive installations worldwide. By integrating sensor readings and networking the output, users receive a more comprehensive security picture. Military and civilian agencies can use I-REMBASS to enhance knowledge-gathering capabilities, effective force protection, and security implementation measures.

I-REMBASS, under the leadership of Robert Foresta for I2WD, has been successfully used for intrusion detection and notification in variety of applications including commercial airfield monitoring, border patrol, drug enforcement applications, and most recently, nuclear power plant protection by the Army National Guard. With history dating back to the 1970s, I-REMBASS has been successfully used by the Army in Southeast Asia, Bosnia, and Afghanistan. Its successor system, Silent Warrior, is designed with enhanced security capabilities.

CACI President of U.S. Operations Ken Johnson said, "We are honored to be recognized for our technical support of the Improved Remotely Monitored Battlefield Sensor System and its significant contribution to homeland security. Organizations that use I-REMBASS will better protect themselves by getting comprehensive and integrated sensor data for enhanced information analysis and improved response time to potential threats."

Commenting on the Grace Hopper Award, CACI Chairman and CEO Dr. J.P. (Jack) London said, "This award acknowledges CACI's support for our warfighters in the field, as well as for civilian and military agencies in their efforts to secure our vital homeland infrastructures. It also represents our focus on providing the most innovative, technologically advanced solutions in support of homeland security."
