Science Applications International Corp. has won a $15.9 million contract to assist the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency.
Under the agreement, SAIC will provide multiple data products to assist with global geospatial intelligence, the Defense Department said Aug. 4. The San Diego company will perform the work in Chantilly, Va., and St. Louis, DOD said.
SAIC integrates geospatial products and information that are used by warfighters and intelligence staff members for their daily activities or combat, according to the company's Web site.
NGA is a combat support component of DOD that assists the secretary of defense, CIA director and other national policymakers in the areas of imagery, imagery intelligence and geospatial information.
SAIC ranks No. 5
on Washington Technology's 2008 Top 100 list
of the largest federal government prime contractors.
