CACI will showcase the wide array of its state-of-the-art maritime warfare solutions in the Sea-Air-Space Exposition in National Harbor, MD, early next month. This annual event is likely to attract the top brass and key decision makers of the U.S. defense industrial base and private-sector companies.
