Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) (NYSE: SAI) announced it was awarded a prime contract by the U.S. Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center (SSC) Atlantic's Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Combat Systems, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C5ISR) System of Systems Engineering and Integration (SoSEI) Program for both strategic and tactical platform requirements. The single-award indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract has a one-year base period of performance, two one-year options, and a total contract ceiling value of approximately $667 million if both options are exercised. Work will be performed primarily in Charleston, S.C. and Norfolk, Va.
SSC Atlantic's C5ISR SoSEI program's objective is to eliminate duplication of efforts throughout the command and promote a quality product line through repeatable processes and removal of variances.
Under the contract, SAIC will place similar integration functions into one integration production process in a government facility and provide technical support to provide systems engineering, integration, testing, large-scale fabrication, non-developmental item procurement, interim repair and maintenance services, and training. Programs that will be supported are the Common Submarine Radio Room, Tactical Operations Intercommunications Network, Naval Tactical Command Support System, and deployable mission modules.
"Our efforts and experience with large-scale integration and systems engineering efforts have set the stage for our work on this contract," said Jim Thigpen, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager. "This expertise will enable us to provide SSC Atlantic with technological solutions that will ultimately streamline efforts and help to deliver platforms more rapidly to the warfighter."
