Science Applications International Corp. has been awarded a $112 million contract to develop cloud-based command and control for the U.S. Air Force Advanced Battle Management System.
“SAIC is passionate about applying technology and innovation to the future battlespace,” said Michael LaRouche, president of SAIC’s national security and space sector.
SAIC will deliver mission-ready, highly available and resilient command and control to the Department of the Air Force’s Program Executive Office for Command, Control, Communications and Battle Management as well and to Combatant Commands. This will align with the Department of the Air Force’s operational imperative to achieve optimized ABMS and JADC2.
“We are excited to be selected for this program to help modernize command and control systems and enable the DOD’s Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2) vision,” LaRouche added. “We are dedicated to advancing ABMS as a strategic partner to the Air Force.”
SAIC will design, develop, integrate and operate the Air Force ABMS CBC2 microservices, leading a number of industry teams contributing to a suite of software applications and infrastructure.
In the first application of CBC2, SAIC will deliver the modernized Air Defense capabilities to North American Aerospace Defense Command and Pacific Air Forces to defend against evolving threats.
SAIC’s recent command and control-related wins include AOC Falconer and ABMS Digital Infrastructure Consortium.
