SAIC Awarded $10 Million contracts by Jordan

16th July 2010 - 08:34 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Science Applications International Corporation announced it has been awarded two new contracts to support the Kingdom of Jordan with DNA consultancy services to the Jordan Public Security Directorate (PSD) new forensic lab, and provide command, control, communications, computers, and intelligence (C4I) support to the Jordan Armed Forces (JAF) Joint Special Operations Command (SOCOM).

The first contract has a five-year period of performance and is valued at more than $3 million. Under the contract, SAIC will provide DNA consultancy services to the Jordan PSD in support of a forensic laboratory in Amman, Jordan. SAIC will help ensure that the new laboratory is a state of the art facility capable of providing support to the police, security, and law enforcement activities of the Kingdom.

The second contract, awarded by the JAF, has a two-year period of performance and is valued at more than $7 million. Under the contract, SAIC will design and equip a new command and control (C2) center, and will integrate C4I system upgrades for JAF SOCOM, also in Amman. These upgrades will help enhance SOCOM's ability to control and communicate with military assets during field operations. The C2 center will be a central location for JAF command officers to meet and evaluate real-time events.

"We look forward to supporting the Kingdom of Jordan by providing quality services that help ensure the preparedness of the new forensic laboratory, and by helping deliver improved command and control capabilities to meet JAF's current and future needs," said Tom Baybrook, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager.
