TYSONS CORNER, VA, October 2, 2019 — Nazzic Keene, CEO of Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAIC) and a 2019 Wash100 winner, has said SAIC’s partnership with Polaris to manufacture infantry squad vehicles for the U.S. Army is an example of how the company is moving to pursue a new posture and position in the defense market, ExecutiveBiz reported Sept. 9.

The executive believes that SAIC’s decision to collaborate with Polaris to offer the latter’s DAGOR combat vehicle for the ISV program showed a “pivot” in its approach to military vehicle manufacturing, Inside Defense reported Sept. 6.

“This is a great example of that, where it’s a proven vehicle,” said Keene. “Our role is really to help engineer it, to strengthen the C4ISR and work with our partner in delivering a strong vehicle versus us owning the manufacturing of something along those lines.”
