Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC) has won $596.6 million contract for the production and delivery of integrated command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems, networks and support equipment to the United States Navy.
The work includes procuring, fabricating, assembling, integrating, testing, inspecting and delivering a highly diverse range of systems that include various complex designs provided by Navy program offices in the form of technical data packages, the US department of defense said in a statement Thursday.
Systems vary in complexity, but generally include the integration of engineered cable assemblies, mounting kit assemblies, hardware, and software/security applications necessary to provide the warfighter with the capability to communicate, maintain situational awareness, and achieve information dominance. The contract includes a single five-year ordering period and an additional two-year award term.
The award term, if earned, would bring the cumulative value of this contract to an estimated $861 million. Work is expected to be complete by August 2023. If the award term is earned, work could continue until August 2025.
