Science Applications International Corp. has been awarded a $2.9 billion, 5-year task order to provide mission engineering, integration, software development and other lifecycle support for the U.S. Army.
The task order will support the Army’s Combat Capabilities Development Command Aviation & Missile Center, Systems Simulation, Software and Integration Directorate.
Under the contract, SAIC will continue to develop and integrate advanced technologies like software development and maintenance. These technologies will be applied to air and ballistic missile defense, combat, aviation, fire support, intelligence, interoperability, automatic test equipment, and command, control and communications.
SAIC will also support lifecycle activities necessary to define concepts and requirements while also developing, sustaining, modifying and retiring systems to meet customer needs as quickly as possible.
The task order is a continuation of SAIC’s work on the Battlefield Systems Engineering Services contract, which will now operate under the General Services Administration’s OASIS Software Life Cycle Development contract.
Jim Scanlon, SAIC executive vice president and general manager of the Defense Systems Group, said SAIC and its teammates will ensure critical technology lifecycle requirements are met to advance the Army’s mission.
“Our support directly impacts the productivity and success of U.S. soldiers, Department of Defense partners, other federal government agencies, cooperative research and development partners and foreign military sales,” Scanlon said.
