Science Applications International Corp. has completed its acquisition of Object Sciences Corp., the company announced today. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The acquisition enhances San Diego-based SAIC's ability to support some of its key customers in intelligence, systems integration and analysis. Further, it positions SAIC to offer total systems solutions within the national security market.
The acquisition of OSC of Alexandria, Va., will add about 133 employees to SAIC's Operational Intelligence Solutions Business Unit.
OSC's involvement in reshaping how intelligence surveillance and reconnaissance information is processed and analyzed has provided critical assistance to combat forces in specific theaters, such as Iraq and Korea, as well as the war on global terrorism in general, SAIC said.
SAIC, a provider of IT, systems integration and e-solutions to the government and commercial sectors, has more than 42,000 employees and annual sales of $7.2 billion. The company ranks No. 3 on Washington Technology's 2005 Top 100 list, which measures federal contracting revenue.
