SAIC Wins $23 Million NASA Contract

Science Applications International Corp. of San Diego won a five year, $23 million contract to perform software independent verification and validation for NASA's Goddard Software IV&V Facility in Fairmont, W.Va., the company announced today. The work will be performed by SAIC's applied technology systems group.

IV&V is a systems engineering discipline that seeks to reduce risk in software programs. Approximately 70 percent of the work will be done in Fairmont. The rest will be done at SAIC facilities in Arlington, Va.

"This award resulted from the strong effort put forth over the years by SAIC personnel involved in IV&V projects to date, which included our long-standing commitment to the Tomahawk cruise missile program for the Navy," said Christopher Stoddard, manager of SAIC's IV&V and software assurance division.

Awarded under the General Services Administration information technology schedule, the contract covers designated space science missions managed by the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. Several missions will receive IV&V support during 2001, including the Galaxy Evolution Explorer, which will probe the causes of star formation.

The mission of the Goddard Space Flight Center is to expand knowledge of the Earth and its environment, the solar system and the universe through observations from space. SAIC is the nation's largest employee-owned research and engineering company.
