C-UAS Technology – CACI International Inc’s (NYSE: CACI) SkyTracker® Technology Suite protects the country from evolving counter-unmanned aircraft systems (C-UAS) threats, and local high school students recently got a rare look at how the company’s drone technology accomplishes its objective.
CACI enthusiastically sponsored Techstravaganza, which was hosted by Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, as part of its philanthropic efforts to promote a passion for STEM among younger people. CACI volunteers Patrick Poling, systems engineer, and Parker Agan, engineering intern, explained how the company’s C-UAS technology aids in national security. This presentation, which featured the SkyTracker Technology Suite, provided students with a one-of-a-kind opportunity to discover how science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) contribute to national security.
“Investing in the next generation of talent is a rewarding venture that CACI strongly supports,” said Todd Probert, President of National Security and Innovative Solutions at CACI. “By exposing them to potential careers in STEM, we are helping to drive and inspire younger talent to discover a path into national security, which is a critical need for our business and our customers.”
Every year, thousands of kids from the greater Washington area attend Techstravaganza, a free, hands-on STEM activity fair open to the public. Students and their families engage in over 50 different laboratories and presentations covering a wide spectrum of STEM ideas. This year, approximately 3,000 children from over 100 different elementary and middle schools attended.
CACI’s internship program and early career possibilities create openings for the next generation of talent. CACI’s Summer 2024 Internship Program will begin accepting applications in September 2023.
