SAIC to craft threat toolset for DOD

In an effort to prepare for possible chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or explosive incidents the Defense Threat Reduction Agency awarded a contract to Science Applications International Corp. to work with existing modeling and simulation tools.

The three-year contract with options could be worth as much as $53.9 million. The new contract covers work on the Integrated Weapons of Mass Destruction Toolset Phase II. Under the contract, SAIC will expand upon the work it completed in Phase I as the lead systems integrator.

SAIC will move validated Defense Threat Reduction Agency modeling and simulation tools for the threats to a Web portal, develop a laptop capability and furnish common a common information systems architecture to cover the various types of catastrophic threats.

This will allow users to rapidly access chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive planning, emergency response and assessment capabilities.

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.
