Science Applications International Corp. has been awarded a $79 million task order by the Air Force.
Under the order, SAIC will deliver mission engineering services to the 414th Supply Chain Management Squadron’s Intercontinental Ballistic Missile LGM-30 Minuteman III missile system. The company will address nuclear hardness requirements, challenges and testing while leveraging mission engineering and integration capabilities including model-based systems engineering.
The squadron provides lifecycle support services including developing enterprise demand and supply plans, developing and implementing sourcing strategies and executing supply plans and cognizant engineering authority.
Under this new task order, SAIC will partner with the squadron to advance its mission by providing end-to-end product support and sustainment solutions, said Michael LaRouche, executive vice president of the company’s National Security Group.
“The 414th mission is critical to our national defense, and our newly designed solutions will enhance Air Force readiness,” he added.
SAIC will also analyze and recommend solutions to make the missile system more reliable, easier to maintain and better able to interoperate with other systems. The company will focus on sustainability, lifecycle management, failure testing and manufacturing sourcing for the systems and associated equipment.
These services will meet customer requirements for the Minuteman III Intercontinental Ballistic Missile and associated launch systems, peacekeeper and future global strike missile systems as well as weapons trainers, support equipment, command and control support and other weapon systems worldwide.
