SAIC

The Avionics Department (AIR-4.5) at the Naval Air Systems Command, Naval Air Station Patuxent River, a US Naval Air Station located in St. Mary’s County, Maryland awarded Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) a prime contract to provide technical and scientific research, development, integration, analysis, assessment, and test and evaluation for its Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) sensor systems.

 

The multiple-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract has a five-year period of performance, and a total contract ceiling value of approximately $50 million available to all awardees. Work will be performed primarily in Patuxent River.

AIR-4.5 develops advanced sensors and systems that support a variety of aviation missions. Most of the sensors will be air deployed via manned or unmanned aircraft, but ground, surface and undersea deployable sensors may also be included when mission driven.

Under the contract, SAIC will provide planning, coordination, technology development, systems definition, systems acquisition, systems integration, modification, and product support for manned and unmanned platform avionics and sensors in support of the Acoustic Systems Division and the Electro-Optics and Special Mission Systems Division. Additionally, SAIC will provide the development and modification of ASW sensor systems and the equipment used to develop, integrate, test and evaluate avionics systems.

“This award expands upon our relationship with the U.S. Naval Air Systems Command at Patuxent River. The scope of this contract encompasses many areas of expertise within SAIC,” said Tom Watson, SAIC senior vice president and general manager of the Navy and Marine Corps Customer Group.
