USAF Selects SAIC for $99M Weapons Simulation Technology Contract

  • Company will continue work developing simulation technology to help the U.S. Air Force assess high-end, next-generation weapon system concepts

Science Applications International Corp. was awarded a contract valued at $99 million by the U.S. Air Force. The Weapon Engagement Simulation Technology for Advanced Research (WESTAR) program, within the Air Force Research Laboratory, will continue developing modeling capabilities to assist in the research, development and transition of Air Force weapon systems.

Under the five-year, single-award indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, SAIC will help the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory develop multi-spectral and multi-modal phenomenology modeling capabilities, advance the state-of-the-art of software/hardware-in-the-loop test technology, and perform a critical role in the research, development and transition of Air Force munitions. Use of simulation at all levels of munition development will serve as a key component of this research.

“SAIC has partnered with the Air Force Research Laboratory since 2000 to support next-generation weapon system development, and we are pleased that our past success positioned us as a valuable partner for the WESTAR program,” said Michael LaRouche, president of SAIC’s National Security and Space Sector. “Our domain experience and innovative approach is helping the U.S. Air Force develop technology for test and evaluation of complex weapon systems that will deter and defeat future threats.”
