CSC wins Missile Defense Agency deal for support services

Computer Sciences Corp. has been awarded a $243 million contract from the Missile Defense Agency to provide engineering and technical support to MDA's Ground-based Midcourse Defense Joint Program Office.

Under the contract extension, which runs for a 15-month base period with two six-month options, CSC will assist the program office with program, acquisition and business management, systems engineering, testing and evaluation, operational status reporting and site activation support, according to a company release.

The contract extension follows a three-year contract awarded to CSC in 2002. Subcontractors on the program include Science Applications International Corp.; SYColeman, a division of L-3 Communications of New York; COLSA of Huntsville, Ala.; and more than 30 small businesses located in Virginia and Alabama.

The Ground-based Midcourse Defense System is a component of the Ballistic Missile Defense System. It includes a ground interceptor and radars and a battle management command, control and communications system. According to the Missile Defense Agency's Web site, the Ground-based Midcourse Defense System is being developed to protect the country against limited ballistic missile threats during the midcourse segment of an attacking missile's flight.

CSC has about 78,000 employees and annual sales of $14.8 billion. The company ranks No. 4 on Washington Technology's 2005 Top 100 list, which measures federal contracting revenue.
