The US Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) has awarded a new task order to Science Applications International (SAIC).

The single-award task order has a potential value of more than $73m if all options are exercised.

It comprises a one-year base period of performance and four additional one-year options.

SAIC is set to provide architecture and systems engineering support services to the Office of the Chief Engineer (CHENG) (SPAWAR 5.0) and the Fleet Readiness Directorate (FRD) under the deal.

“SAIC will continue to provide its traditional architecture support services, with additional support in key areas such as cyber-security and systems engineering technical authority.”

The company has also agreed to offer support to a number of command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) programmes and offices as part of the arrangement.

SAIC Defense Systems Customer Group senior vice-president and general manager Jim Scanlon said: “We are proud to continue to support SPAWAR 5.0, the navy’s information technology technical authority, building upon our 14-year history with this programme.

“As part of this task order, SAIC will continue to provide its traditional architecture support services, with additional support in key areas such as cyber-security and systems engineering technical authority.”

The task order was awarded under the SeaPort-e contracting vehicle.

The majority of the work under the initiative will be carried out in San Diego, California, US.

In addition, several activities will also be carried out in Charleston, South Carolina; Denver, Colorado; Norfolk, Virginia; and Washington D.C.

SAIC will also be responsible for delivering full spectrum architecture, analysis, interoperability assessments, engineering, configuration management and technical management services to SPAWAR as part of the task order.

The CHENG SPAWAR 5.0 has been designed to set engineering standards, processes and policies, while ensuring the availability of skilled engineering personnel with the knowledge, technical skills and abilities required to carry out several SPAWAR programmes and projects, as well as support the full range of lifecycle C4ISR capabilities.
