ROME, N.Y. — The U.S. Department of Defense has awarded CACI Technologies Inc. of Chantilly, Virginia, a more than $34.8 million cost-plus-fixed-fee contract to develop and test software agility and resiliency software/hardware for the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) in Rome.

CACI will be tasked with developing technology and methods to test and evaluate the effectiveness of virtual infrastructure for “malware analysis and mission assurance and web-based mission management functionality integration with current operational systems,” according to a contract announcement from the Defense Department.

The Virginia company will perform the work in Rome, and it is expected to be completed by June 30, 2024. The AFRL is the contracting activity.

CACI won the contract in a competitive process over one other unnamed company that bid for the work. Fiscal-year 2019 research, development, test, and evaluation funds totaling $1.15 million are being obligated at the time of award, the Defense Department said.
