CACI International said this week it has named retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Shields senior vice president of advanced technology for mission adoption.

Shields most recently was director of the Joint Improvised-Threat Defeat Organization from 2015 to 2018. He also served as commanding general of U.S. Army Alaska and director of the Pakistan/Afghanistan Coordination Center within the Joint Staff, the company said.

“With CACI, LTG Shields will focus on strategic planning to integrate advanced technologies in such areas as novel sensors, autonomous systems, artificial intelligence, and others with warfighting needs, and guiding the development of mission-ready solutions, from quick reaction through full certification and deployment,” CACI said.
