SAIC awarded $39 million task order by the US Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division
Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) today announced it has been awarded a follow-on contract by the US Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD) to provide management and systems engineering services to NAWCAD's Integrated Communications and Information Systems (ICIS) Division. The task order has a one-year base period of performance, four one-year options, and a total value of more than $39 million if all options are exercised. Work will be performed primarily in St. Inigoes, Md. The task order was awarded under the US Navy's SeaPort-e contract.
The ICIS Division is tasked by numerous US Department of Defense and federal agencies to perform engineering, development, acquisition, integration, and installation tasks relating to communication-electronics and information systems. Under the task order, SAIC will provide contract, organizational, and project management support, as well as material acquisition services in support of various projects. These projects include surface ship radio and aircraft-based communication systems; automatic identification systems; unmanned vehicle communication and control systems; information assurance activities; and technical development initiatives.
"We look forward to continuing our support of NAWCAD, helping them support the development of communication and information systems that contribute to the effectiveness of our military," said Debbie James, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager.
