Science Applications International Corp. has won a $10 million contract with the U.S. Navy for research and development of anti-submarine warfare surveillance.
Under the cost-plus-fixed-fee contract, the company will provide system architecture and design, sensors and processing, communications mobility and energy requirements.
The anti-submarine warfare surveillance system will be configurable, and will be able to work over large, operationally relevant, deep ocean areas, the Defense Department said in a release.
The contract has a one-year base worth $9.5 million, and one six-month option.
Work will be performed in Arlington, Va., and is expected to be completed by June 17, 2014, or by Dec. 17, 2014, if the option is exercised.
Contract funds in the amount of $2.8 million are obligated at the time of the award, and will not expire at the end of fiscal 2013.
