Science Applications International (SAIC) has won a $133m contract to provide mission engineering and integration services to the US Navy’s Maneuver, Engagement and Surveillance Systems Division.

As per the terms of the contract, SAIC will continue to provide engineering services, technical support, analysis and modelling, research, inventory and logistics, and quality assurance services to the division located at the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) in Crane, Indiana.

These services will be provided in support of tactical intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance solutions at the system, subsystem and component levels.

Under the direction of the Naval Sea Systems Command, NSWC Crane provides acquisition engineering, in-service engineering, and technical support for sensors, electronics, electronic weapons, and special combat weapons.

The renewed prime contract has a one-year base period of performance, along with four one-year additional options.

The scope of the contract covers wide technological areas, which include command and control (C2) systems, tactical communications, mobility platforms, and persistent collection technologies.

Other service areas covered include networked intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance (ISR) systems, special sensor development, sensor integration and unattended ground sensors.

SAIC Defense Systems Group executive vice-president and general manager Jim Scanlon said: “For more than 30 years, SAIC’s roughly 550 employees in Crane have helped to equip the warfighter with the solutions they need to be successful and to ensure mission readiness around the world.

“We are excited to continue our work advancing complex missions for the navy.”

Last month, SAIC won a $63.5m task order to provide mission engineering and integration services to the US Navy’s Global Deterrence and Defense Department (Code GX) at the NSWC.

In June, SAIC secured a $60m contract from the US Navy to provide mission engineering support for the US Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA).
