SAIC will provide a wide range of scientific and technical assistance to the Defense Intelligence Agency under a contract potentially worth $19 million over five years.
SAIC will furnish signature measurement, prediction and related analysis services to the DIA’s Missile and Space Intelligence Center, company officials said Nov. 30. These services will help the center assess and evaluate signatures of foreign missile systems and related ground support equipment.
The center produces and manages scientific and technical documentation on missile systems operated by other nations, directed energy weapons, selected space programs and systems, and relevant command, control, communications and computer systems.
The work will be performed primarily in Huntsville, Ala. SAIC has supported the center since the 1980s.
SAIC, of McLean, Va., ranksNo. 7 on Washington Technology’s 2009 Top 100 list of the largest prime contractors.
