(NYSE: CACI), a professional services and information technology company that serves multiple branches of the U.S. federal government, including defense, homeland security, and intelligence, as well as other customers from locations in the U.S. and abroad. AVT is a leading provider of technology and solutions that support multi-domain intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR); air defense; and counter-unmanned aircraft systems (c-UAS) operations for the defense and aerospace industry.
