SAIC Awarded USD 55M Task Order by PEO for Simulation, Training & Instrumentation
- Company to Continue Support of One Semi-Automated Forces (OneSAF) Production
Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) (NYSE: SAI) announced today it was awarded a task order by the Program Executive Office (PEO) for Simulation, Training & Instrumentation (STRI) Acquisition Center to continue development of One Semi-Automated Forces (OneSAF) to increase its capabilities to a broad audience. The task order has a one-year base period of performance, four one-year options, and a contract value of more than $55 million, if all options are exercised and funded. Work will be performed primarily in Orlando, Fla. The task order was awarded under the Simulator & Trainer Omnibus Contract (STOC) II vehicle.
PEO STRI provides the U.S. Army with training devices, simulations, simulators and instrumentation for both training and testing. The OneSAF system is a next generation computer generated forces simulation that can represent a full range of operations, systems, and control process, supporting all modeling and simulation domains. It allows users to configure computer generated force systems exactly as they need to support their simulation requirements. Under the contract, SAIC will help implement OneSAF enhancements by providing services in areas including conceptual modeling, engineering, design, development, production, and test and integration.

"We look forward to working with PEO STRI on the production of OneSAF to support force modernization and transformation from weapons systems to brigade through analysis, experimentation, and training," said John Gully, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager. "This effort will ensure the consistent management of the configuration baseline, controlled integration of externally developed code, consistency and accuracy of released versions, and timely maintenance and response to user needs."
