US Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic Awards Contract to SAIC

Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) announced it was awarded a prime contract by the U.S. Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center (SSC) Atlantic to provide production, installation and in-services support for command, control, communications, computers, combat systems, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C5ISR) capabilities for subsurface and surface platforms.

The multiple-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract has a one-year base period of performance, four one-year options, and a total contract value of approximately $899 million if all options are exercised, for all awardees.

SSC Atlantic’s engineering centers support the U.S. Department of Defense and other federal agencies. Its primary mission is to provide cyber-security, adaptive response, and engineering excellence by delivering secure, integrated, and innovative solutions to U.S. naval, joint, and national agencies.

Under the contract, SAIC will provide production, installation, in-service support, life-cycle logistics, training, and large-scale integration efforts to deliver and sustain superior C5ISR mission capabilities for surface, shore and sub-surface platforms. In addition, the company will provide and support enterprise engineering, test planning and execution to enable delivery and acceptance of integrated systems in support of operational C5ISR capability requirements. SAIC is one of seven contractors eligible to compete for task orders under the contract.

“We look forward to providing SSC Atlantic with expertise in production, installation, life-cycle logistics, training, and large-scale integration capabilities,” said Jim Thigpen, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager. “SAIC welcomes the opportunity to continue to deliver and sustain superior C5ISR mission capabilities.”

Naval Mission Systems Technology

Integrating Naval Assets to Ensure Enhanced Maritime Operations and Support.

Navies are constantly looking at how the collection and dissemination of data from marine helicopters, UAVs, radars and shore based sensors through C2 systems can be improved to produce an accurate, clear, and all-encompassing picture of the maritime theatre for allied forces.

The complexity associated with effectively coordinating the variety of operations of these systems means that interoperability between all systems, divisions, and nations is of paramount importance. Therefore, SMi’s Naval Mission Systems Technology Conference will explore the strategies and technologies required to develop next generation capability in this vital area of national defence.

The expert speaker panel includes: Italian Navy, U.S. Navy, NATO Modelling and Simulation Center of Excellence (M & S COE), BAAINBw, The Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl), University College London and many more.
