Science Applications International Corp. will provide engineering and research services to the Navy under a five-year contract that could be worth more than $19 million if all options are exercised.
The prime contract from the Naval Research Laboratory calls for SAIC to provide engineering and physical life sciences research and development services in support of the NRL Chemistry Division at NRL facilities in Washington, D.C.
SAIC services will include analysis and sensing; carbon cycling in aquatic, marine and terrestrial ecosystems; materials; and development, analysis, and modeling of unexploded ordnance sensors, according to the SAIC announcement dated Aug. 22.
The NRL is the Navy's full-spectrum corporate laboratory, conducting a broadly based multidisciplinary program of scientific research and advanced technological development, the announcement states.
SAIC, of McLean, Va., ranks No. 6 on Washington Technology’s 2011 Top 100 list of the largest federal government contractors.
