Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) (NYSE: SAI) announced today it was awarded a prime contract by the United States Army to provide command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) rapid prototyping and technology insertion support to the Communications-Electronics Research Development & Engineering Center (CERDEC) Command, Power and Integration Directorate Prototyping, Integration and Testing Division. The multiple-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract has a one-year base period of performance, four one-year options, and an estimated total contract value of $263 million if all options are exercised. Work will be performed primarily at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md.
CERDEC develops and integrates C4ISR technologies that enable the warfighter to sense the battle space; deny and disrupt enemy efforts; and remain "connected" to achieve and sustain information superiority. Under the contract, SAIC will provide CERDEC with support required to perform a variety of tri-service C4ISR prototype systems integration programs, including prototyping, integrating, testing and fielding, and C4ISR technology insertion and related projects. SAIC is one of two companies eligible to compete for task orders under this contract.
"We look forward to expanding our presence at Aberdeen Providing Ground while supporting the Army's efforts to innovate and implement solutions in specific core competencies of mission command capabilities, mission command computing platforms, power and energy, and C4ISR platform prototyping and integration," said Joe Craver, President of SAIC's Health, Energy and Civil Solutions Group.
