RESTON, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CACI International Inc (NYSE: CACI) announced today it has completed the Critical Design Review (CDR) for its demonstration small satellite program (DemoSat) launch scheduled for early 2023, which is slated to deliver two mission payloads to low earth orbit. CACI and its partner, York Space Systems – a specialized manufacturer of spacecraft and space collection solutions – will demonstrate alternative positioning, navigation, and timing (APNT) and tactical intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (TacISR) payloads onboard the DemoSat.
“CACI expertise, systems, and technology help our customers maintain dominance in the increasingly contested space environment,” said Mike Hale, Executive Vice President of CACI’s Advanced Solutions Group. “We are very proud that CACI is launching a DemoSat payload onto orbit – distinguishing our mission technology and transformative solutions for customer success.”
Both payloads are built on flexible, upgradable software-defined radio (SDR) hardware. The APNT payload showcases CACI’s advanced precision two-way time transfer (TWTT) and clock modeling technology, demonstrating low size, weight, and power (SWaP) space based PNT for synchronization and timing that significantly improves multi-platform remote sensing. The TacISR payload identifies and captures key signals of interest (SOI) and operates with CACI’s Beast ground receiver to demonstrate real-time radiofrequency (RF) geolocation for deployed U.S. forces.
CACI is an industry innovator in the design and manufacture of rugged signals intelligence, electronic warfare, and cyber technologies. Its DemoSat program builds on more than two decades of experience with integrating and operating complex end-to-end collection, processing, and space domain awareness systems for the Intelligence Community, the Department of Defense, and U.S. Government agencies.
