CACI to Build on Successful TLS-BCT Manpack Demonstrations, Official Says
A CACI official said the U.S. Army completed preliminary testing on its portable jammer in November.
CACI-owned Mastodon Design built the Terrestrial Layer System-Brigade Combat Team Manpack under a $1.5 million prototyping contract. The portable device is designed to enable soldiers to manipulate electronic signals while on the move and engage in other forms of electronic warfare and signals intelligence while minimizing additional weight.
Todd Probert, president of national security and innovative solutions at CACI, a two-time Wash100 awardee and a 4×24 member, said the company will build on the test’s successes and look for new capabilities for the device.
The TLS-BCT Manpack is a smaller version of the CACI-made TLS-BCT and TLS-Echelons Above Brigade, C4ISRNET reported Tuesday.
CACI has recently been providing support services to the U.S. military, some of which are for C5ISR.
In October, the company secured a potential five-year, $917 million U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory contract for continued C5ISR capabilities enhancements. The company was tasked to provide software lifecycle support and systems engineering to support the AFRL’s C5ISR-related information dissemination, information security and decision-making.
In August, the U.S. Navy awarded CACI a five-year, $125 million contract for continued C5ISR lifecycle support to the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division.
