CACI International Inc announced yesterday it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Applied Systems Research, Inc., a provider of technical services and products to the Intelligence Community.
Closing is anticipated Nov. 1, 2010.
ASR employs 50 workers and is headquartered in Fairfax, Va. The company’s core competencies include radar and infrared imaging and interpretation, passive radio frequency signatures, chemical and biological sensors, acoustic sensors, and asymmetric threat detection methodologies. ASR is also a provider of professional services at the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency. Its geospatial intelligence support includes transformational technologies such as advanced geospatial intelligence.
Paul Cofoni, CACI president and CEO, said the acquisition of Applied Systems Research is another important step in CACI’s effort to expand its intelligence business.
“Combined with our recently announced intent to acquire TechniGraphics, this acquisition makes CACI a key provider of geospatial and technical intelligence to multiple agencies within the national Intelligence Community,” he said. “ASR’s science, technology, and modeling and simulation expertise bolsters our ability to solve difficult problems in support of intelligence missions that are vital to our nation’s security.”
