Science Applications International Corp (SAIC ) has received a mobility platform integration contract worth $78m from the US Navy. 

Under the single-award, cost-plus fixed fee task order, support services will be delivered to the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Expeditionary Department in Crane, Indiana.

The scope of the contract covers wide technological areas, including research and development support and engineering, system engineering, process engineering, modelling and simulation, and analysis support.  

Other areas it covers include prototyping, pre-production, model-making, and fabrication support, as well as system design documentation and technical data support.

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

SAIC Defense Systems Group executive vice-president and general manager Jim Scanlon said: “We are excited to support mission systems integration into mobile platforms with our proven ability to fill gaps, handle project surges, and use the inherent knowledge we have accumulated over the past 30 years to solve complex technical challenges.  

“SAIC’s successful past performance and commitment means we can assure NSWC that we can meet the mission and achieve results for our customers and the warfighter.”  

The support services will enable NSWC Crane in dealing with challenges related to the engineering and development of integration efforts throughout a range of platforms.  

By leveraging collaborative tools and processes, NSWC Crane will be able to quickly and repeatedly deploy sensors, weapons, communication and diagnostic systems for the Maneuver, Surveillance, and Engagement Division. 

Last month, SAIC won a $171.5m contract from the US Navy to continue providing training solutions as part of the Fleet Deployment Training Program.  

SAIC also won a $133m contract to provide mission engineering and integration services to the US Navy’s Maneuver, Engagement and Surveillance Systems Division.
