Science Applications International (SAIC) has secured a contract from the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Pacific to continue to deliver engineering services to the US Navy’s afloat and ashore assets.
Valued at around $80m, the single award, indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract has a three-year base period of performance.
SAIC Navy and Marine Corps Customer Group vice-president and general manager Tom Watson said: "For more than 20 years, SAIC has supported SPAWAR on TACNET and its associated C4I programmes, and our employees are dedicated to ensuring the highest degree of fleet readiness.
"Our team of programme managers, engineers, logistic and technical support personnel are honoured to continue to help ensure that the US Navy’s fleet is fully operational and prepared for mission success."
Work under the contract will be performed primarily in Norfolk, Virginia and San Diego, California, while additional work will be carried out on US Navy Ships and shore sites worldwide.
According to SAIC, tactical network in-service engineering activity (TACNET ISEA) is responsible for the sustainment of fielded systems.
It will be achieved through end-of-life replacement, system upgrades, follow-on, or interrelated system, distant support, on-site repair, installations, and system analysis to ensure networks are performing within designed specifications.
Moreover, TACNET ISEA offers engineering review of documents in support of production and installation of programme-of-record systems.
In May, SAIC received a $118.5m contract from the US Navy to provide the US Fleet Forces Command with fleet deployment training programme support.
As part of the contract, SAIC is responsible in assisting Fleet Forces Command with fleet training policy / directive development and implementation.
