SAIC closes Applied Marine Technology purchase

Science Applications International Corp. has completed its acquisition of Applied Marine Technology Inc., a provider of products and services related to homeland security and the global war on terrorism. Terms were not disclosed when the company announced the purchase last month.

The acquisition marries AMTI's capabilities in training and exercises, systems engineering and integration, information systems and communications, and rapid prototyping of technical solutions with SAIC's technical and operational work for the nation's intelligence, special warfare and homeland security communities.

In addition to its core offerings, AMTI provides communications, IT, personal protection and explosive ordinance disposal products.

AMTI of Virginia Beach, Va., with its 500 employees, is now part of SAIC's Operational Intelligence Solutions business unit in McLean, Va. The unit is headed by Senior Vice President and General Manager John Thomas.

SAIC of San Diego has more than 43,000 employees and had annual sales of $7.8 billion in fiscal 2006. The company ranks No. 3 on Washington Technology's 2006 Top 100 list of the largest federal IT contractors.
