Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAI) has won a prime position on a potential $263 million U.S. Army contract to prototype and insert C4ISR technologies (command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance).
The company will compete for task orders to perform work under the potential five-year indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, which contains one base year and four option years, SAIC said Monday.
Joe Craver, president of the health, energy and civil solutions group, said the company will work with the Army’s Communications-Electronics Research Development and Engineering Center Command to develop mission command computing platforms.
Craver added the company and command will also work on power and energy programs.
SAIC will compete to help the command run tri-service C4ISR prototype systems integration programs and to integrate the technology into C4ISR platforms.
CERDEC is responsible for developing and integrating C4ISR technologies intended to help warfighters sense the battle space; deny and disrupt enemy efforts; and remain connected to information systems.
