Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) has announced it has been awarded a prime contract by the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) to provide programme management and engineering support services in support of the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division's (NAWCAD) Air Traffic Control and Landing Systems (ATC&LS) Division. This single-award cost-plus-fixed-fee (CPFF) task order has a one-year base period, two one-year options, and a total value of approximately $48 million if all options are exercised.

The contract will see SAIC provide technical and management support services to the ATC&LS Division to support its research, design, development, training, and logistic support tasking. The ATC&LS Division helps the fleet positively identify and track targets in combat and air traffic control environments through systems design, engineering, integration, installation, training, operational support, and in-service engineering for the US Navy, US Marine Corps, and other US Department of Defence ATC&LS systems.

According to the company, SAIC will also provide technical support to the ATC&LS programmes through technology assessment; system engineering; system performance analyses; system test and evaluation support; system level procurement package development; training; local area network support; and operational site maintenance.

Jim Thigpen, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager, said: ‘This is one of our longest running contracts in the Patuxent River area. We look forward to continuing to work with ATC&LS to provide new technologies and services that will ultimately improve electronic systems in air traffic control and landing systems.’
