SAIC has been awarded a $52 million task order to help support the U.S. Army conduct battlefield simulations, the company announced.
The single-award task order has a 1-year base period and four option years. Under the deal, SAIC will provide live, virtual, constructive and game-based experimentation to U.S. Army’s Maneuver Battle Lab in Fort Benning, Georgia.
“During the past 13 years, SAIC has successfully supported the Maneuver Battle Lab and helped them meet fast-paced demands,” said Jim Scanlon, SAIC’s senior vice president and general manager of the Defense Systems Customer Group. “We are excited to continue our work in experimentation, modeling and simulation, and systems engineering for the Army. We remain committed to their mission through our technical expertise and innovative ideas we bring forth each day.”
SAIC’s work focuses on infantry, Stryker and Armor brigade combat teams as well as reconnaissance and cavalry formations, the company said.
“Our decades of synthetic experimentation experience and investments in simulation integration have enabled us to intimately understand and support this mission,” said Josh Jackson, SAIC senior vice president and general manager of the engineering, integration and mission solutions market segment. “We are pleased to continue helping the Army prepare for the future.”
