SAIC awarded US Army Geospatial Centre contract
Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) has announced that it has awarded a prime contract by the US Army Geospatial Centre (AGC) to provide geospatial research, intelligence and support related to Geospatial Enterprise Services (GES). SAIC announced the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract 27 August 2012.
The AGC provides the warfighter with timely, accurate and relevant geospatial information, capabilities and domain expertise for army geospatial enterprise implementation in support of unified land operations.
According to SAIC, under the contract, it will provide geospatial research, intelligence and support services, including: systems engineering and software development processes related to GES; develop, integrate and operate various intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) payload systems; joint capabilities technology demonstrations relevant to GES and command, control, communications, computers (C4) ISR requirements; and acquire, fuse and disseminate geospatial information and other sources at various echelons.
John Fratamico, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager, said: ‘We look forward to continuing to provide the AGC with an end-to-end architecture capable of collecting, integrating, synchronizing, managing, analysing, displaying, and disseminating geospatial information and C4ISR systems, enabling the AGC to provide direct geospatial support and products to warfighters’.
The IDIQ contract has a one-year base period of performance, four one-year options, and a total value of $200 million, if all options are exercised.
