Science Applications International Corp. has tapped a few familiar names in the defense contracting community to compete with it for the Joint Warfighting Center support contract scheduled for award next year.
SAIC's team, unveiled this week, includes L-3 Communications' Titan Group, Alion Science and Technology Corp., and SRA International Inc.
Other subcontractors participating are Camber Corp., URS Corp.'s EG&G Division, Professional Software Engineering Inc., EDO Corp.'s Professional Services Division and several small businesses.
The team members were selected because of their capabilities and experience related to joint training; simulation; exercise and command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance.
The five-year contract valued at $250 million will support the U.S. Joint Forces Command's joint trainer responsibilities by planning and conducting exercises, crisis rehearsals and other training events. The request for proposals is expected to be released in January.
SAIC, which has more than 43,000 employees and annual sales of $7.2 billion, ranks No. 3
on Washington Technology's 2005 Top 100
list of federal prime contractors.
