CACI International has won a 15-month, $4.9 million program award from the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio.
The program intends to advance high-power multispectral laser technology in support of improved electro-optical sensors for military missions.
Under the contract, CACI scientists and engineers will develop a high-power laser prototype that emits light over a broad range of wavelengths in the optical spectrum, spanning the UV spectrum, the visible spectrum and into the Short-Wavelength Infrared.
“We are seeing a strong demand for high-performance lasers that support enhanced functionality for remote sensing systems,” said CACI President and CEO John Mengucci. “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.”
