CACI is not in the habit of bragging. So few people probably realize that the $6 billion company headquartered in suburban Washington, has become a global leader in defeating unmanned aircraft systems. In fact, it may be the global leader: it has the most deployed systems, the biggest signals library, and the best reviews from customers. Over a dozen federal agencies rely on its SkyTracker suite of solutions for counter-drone technology. Explaining why it has emerged as a leader is a complicated story, but at least part of the explanation lies in some basic principles the company has embraced: know your enemy, leverage the full spectrum, layer the defense, automate the kill chain, tailor solutions, facilitate interoperability and shrink the footprint. There’s more to the story, much of it classified, but the bottom line is that no competitor is likely to surpass CACI in its counter-drone offerings. I have written a commentary for Forbes here.
