Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) has secured a five-year contract to supply tactical integrated threat/target training systems (TTS) to the US Navy.

The company will compete for task orders, valued at approximately $93m, as part of the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract.

Activities performed under the contract will support the Adaptive Combat Environment Systems group of the US Navy at California’s Naval Air Station.

The task orders are for delivering services such as research and development (R&D), engineering, integration, testing and cybersecurity.

SAIC and other vendors will also provide upgrades and sustainment for numerous TTSs to help enhance the effectiveness and survivability of the US Navy aircrew.

The TTS directly support warfighter training and real-time data for mission debrief events.

SAIC Naval Business Unit senior vice-president Josh Jackson said: “This award gives SAIC an opportunity to win specific task orders under the TTS contract to help verify and validate the system capabilities deployed to our navy.

“This will ultimately help us better serve and support the navy’s current and future range capabilities.”

Services such as range data collection and specialised instrumentation, as well as data at the edge computing, sorting and analytics, are include under the TTS support.

SAIC noted that the contractual work also includes sustainment of electronic warfare-centric range capabilities, as well as performance validation and verification of the next-generation systems’ support.

Work on the cost-plus-fixed-fee, firm-fixed-price contract is slated for completion in September 2026.

In February, SAIC won a contract from the US Navy to support its MK48 heavyweight torpedo.
