URS Corporation (NYSE:URS) today announced it has been awarded two indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity, multiple-award pillar contracts by the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic (SSC Atlantic). The Company was selected as one of 15 prime contractors to provide business and force support services, and as one of 13 prime contractors to provide integrated cyber operations services.

These awards further expand the critical services that URS provides to the Navy.
