As the purchase of Bellcore nears completion, Science Applications International Corp. executives are brimming with optimism about the systems integrator's future.

William Owens, president and vice chairman of the board of San Diego-based SAIC, says Bell Communications Research Corp. will add $1 billion in revenues to SAIC's $2.4 billion and expand its base technologies.
