SAIC unit wins defense design and demo work

Hicks and Associates Inc., a Science Applications International Corp.-owned company, has won a 23-month, $4.7 million contract from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency to provide design and demonstration services, the company announced today.

Under the contract, H&AI of McLean, Va., will design and demonstrate a signaling technology that is low cost and has a low probability of being intercepted.

The project is a result of teaming between H&AI and Gibbons Systems Inc., the inventor and owner of the enabling technology. H&AI is an incubator for promising technologies.

The project is designed to develop an advanced signaling technology that can be used quickly by the military.

H&AI, a provider of solutions for defense, homeland security and intelligence agencies, is a subsidiary of SAIC of San Diego. SAIC has about 43,000 employees, annual sales $6.7 billion and is ranked No. 5 on Washington Technology's 2004 Top 100 list, which measures federal contracting revenue.
