SAIC to Deliver Space Battle Management Command and Control Solution for SDA

  • $64 million award enlists SAIC to develop, implement and sustain a software application factory

Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAIC) has been selected for a $64 million award from the Space Development Agency (SDA) to develop, implement and maintain the Battle Management Command, Control and Communications (BMC3) Application Factory for the agency’s constellation of low-earth orbit satellites called the Proliferated Warfighter Space Architecture (PWSA).

“The BMC3 component of the PWSA is transformational for the Department of Defense and the country,” said Michael LaRouche, president, National Security and Space Sector at SAIC. “The Space Development Agency is entrusting SAIC to deliver an innovative approach that weaves together command and control, secure cloud and space systems integration for critical warfighter needs.”

The BMC3 Application Factory is a cloud-based solution which will deliver software through a DevSecOps process to a constellation of hundreds of low-earth orbit satellites. To support time-sensitive missions, BMC3 software applications will deliver automated space-based battle management through command and control, mission processing and dissemination of data. The BMC3 Application Factory’s ability to rapidly test and integrate upgraded software capabilities of on-orbit assets will help the Space Force adapt to evolving threats and needs.

Through the award, SAIC will integrate command and control, software, cyber, cloud and engineering solutions. As the BMC3 integrator, SAIC will support the PWSA, a critical component to the Department of Defense’s JADC2 strategy. The PWSA provides ubiquitous data communications and accelerates decision-making. This will ensure the SDA’s on-orbit assets, which have been built by multiple vendors, can quickly adapt to evolving near-peer threats and warfighter needs. SAIC will also develop a secure interoperable middleware layer that will ensure BMC3 mission applications can operate on the various satellite providers’ hardware, enabling real-time coordination across the PWSA.
