Science Applications International Corp., San Diego, has received a contract from the U.S. Joint Forces Command to support the Joint Concept Development and Experimentation program, the company announced March 26.
The program was established by the Joint Forces Command to develop recommendations for warfare operations in the 21st century. The recommendations are expected to address and possibly lead to changes in joint doctrine, organizations, training and education, materiel, leadership, personnel and facilities programs.
SAIC's Center for National Security Issues won the five-year, $35.6 million contract to provide engineering support, technical and administrative services, program development, concept development, science and technology support, experiment design and analysis, modeling and simulation support, advanced concept technology demonstrations and knowledge management.
"SAIC analysts, scientists and engineers are committed to helping JFCOM meet its goals by providing sound strategic advice and the latest technology available," said Jim Suhr, SAIC program manager. "Backed by our results-based management approach, we will work closely with JFCOM and support its Joint Concept Development and Experimentation program, which is critical to ensuring that the U.S. military is prepared to meet future challenges."
