CACI Supports USAF with ATSSI II Upgrades

May 11, 2021
ATE systems are being modernized at Hill Air Force Base, UT as part of the ATSSI II program to maintain the highest levels of performance for the latest weapons systems.

The U.S. Air Force (USAF) has awarded CACI, Inc. with an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract worth upwards of $496 million for Automated Test System Sustainment Initiative II (ATSSI II) test system maintenance and upgrades. Contracted by the Air Force Sustainment Center (Hill Air Force Base, UT), which is where the work will be performed, the program is expected to be completed by 2030.

The ATSSI II program (see the figure) is part of modernizing automated test systems for the USAF. Just as electronic systems continue to advance as new technologies become available, so too must the test-and-measurement capabilities of automatic-test-equipment (ATE) systems keep pace with system performance and technology advances. The ATSSI II provides support to the Ogden Air Logistics Complex (OO-ALC) at Hill Air Force Base for the continued development and sustainment of a depot technology infrastructure capable of performing critical test functions for multiple USAF weapons systems, notably in logistics areas.

The ATSSI II award comes on the heels of a $447 million five-year contract with CACI a week earlier from the National Security Agency (NSA) in support of signal intelligence (SIGINT) and cybersecurity operations. At the time of that award, John Mengucci, CACI president and chief executive officer (CEO), said, “This award continues CACI’s decade-long relationship supporting the NSA’s cryptology, signals intelligence, and network operations missions. CACI remains steadfastly committed to supporting our customer in executing their critical missions to keep our nation and its citizens safe.”
