SAIC to calibrate Navy shipboard instruments

Science Applications International Corp. will provide programming and engineering support for the Navy's Shipboard Instrumentation and Systems Calibration program.

The work will be done under a new $25 million cost-plus-fixed-fee Seaport-e task order from the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock Division, in Philadelphia, which has a 19-month base period and three options of varying lengths.

The company will perform most of the calibration work in Philadelphia; Norfolk, Va.; Bath, Me.; Pascagoula, Miss.; San Diego; and Mayport, Fla.

The calibration work supports ships and submarines primarily in fleet concentration areas, said Hank Giffin, vice president and operations manager at SAIC.

The work will include calibration requirements analysis and equipment evaluation, according to SAIC. Also, shipboard instrumentation checks on gauges, pressure switches, thermometers and other maritime instruments.

The Carderock Division includes some 3,800 scientists, engineers and support personnel in Philadelphia and Bethesda, Md. It provides a wide range of applied maritime science and technology, including all technical aspects of improving the performance of ships, submarines, military water craft and unmanned vehicles, as well as research for military logistics systems.

SAIC of San Diego ranks No. 5 on Washington Technology's 2007 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
