SAIC Acquires SET; Looks to Boost IRO

SAIC has purchased Science Engineering and Technology Corporation (SET).  Terms of the deal were undisclosed.

The move is set to increase SAIC’s Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities, including forward processing of sensor data, advanced PED (processing, exploitation, and dissemination) tools and technology, and real time information integration.

“This acquisition brings a team of highly talented staff and thought leaders in core domains to SAIC, as well as intellectual property and resources that will enable us to support multiple ISR programs simultaneously, ” said John Fratamico, Senior VP and GM of the Advanced Concepts Business Unit. “It will also significantly increase SAIC’s ability to develop and acquire advanced PED solutions to solidify SAIC’s position in the market, and broaden our leadership in development of next generation ISR enterprise solutions.”
