Science Applications International Corp. will provide systems engineering and technical support services to the Navy under a five-year contract with a total value of more than $108 million if all options are exercised.
SAIC was awarded the prime contract by the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command’s Tactical Mobile Program.
The TacMobile Program provides the ground support elements for preflight mission planning; in-flight data processing; and post-flight data processing and analysis for maritime patrol aircraft on anti-submarine warfare and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions.
Under this contract, SAIC will provide integration and testing of TacMobile hardware, engineering services for maintenance and support of currently fielded TacMobile systems, and design engineering services to support future system upgrades and technical refreshes.
The single-award contract has a one-year base period of performance and four one-year options. The work will be performed in Charleston, S.C., and Patuxent River, Md.
SAIC, of Falls Church, Va., ranks No. 7 on Washington Technology’s 2009 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
