The U.S. Army awarded Reston-based Fortune 500 defense contractor Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC) an $830 million contract to provide engineering services for the branch’s Combat Capabilities Development Command, Aviation & Missile Center (DEVCOM AvMC), the company announced Tuesday.
Under the potential five-and-a-half-year contract, SAIC will provide hardware in-the-loop (HWIL) aviation systems engineering services for DEVCOM AvMC’s Software, Simulation, Systems Engineering and Integration (S3I) Directorate.
“We are honored to have been chosen as the primary provider for the Aviation Systems HWIL Engineering contract and look forward to our continued support of the S3I Directorate, the DEVCOM AvMC and the American soldier,” Bob Genter, president of SAIC’s Defense & Civilian Sector, said in a statement.
Under the contract, SAIC will focus on life cycle support for manned and unmanned systems, subsystems, components, infrastructure and support equipment.
“SAIC is privileged to support cutting-edge engineering efforts at S3I and DEVCOM AvMC, along with our teammates,” Gabe Camarillo, SAIC senior vice president of the Army Business Unit, said in a statement. “We look forward to extending our support to Army aviation modernization in the Huntsville, Alabama, area in the years to come.”
SAIC will continue to provide systems engineering and integration services to all armed services branches and their associated offices/program managers, Department of Defense components, combatant commanders, science and technology programs and other services. Work will be performed under the General Services Administration’s One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services (OASIS) professional services contract.
SAIC employs more than 25,000 people and has pro forma annual revenues of $7.1 billion.
