Reston-based Science Applications International Corp. will continue servicing combat instrumentation platforms used by the Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division for training and test evaluation under a potential $249 million contract, the Fortune 500 contractor announced Tuesday.
Under the contract, SAIC will perform systems design and integration, hardware and software upgrades and modifications for combat environment instrumentation systems.

The work also includes field service support at more than nine test locations.
“SAIC’s expertise in systems integration and engineering provides solutions to support the U.S. Navy’s testing and training needs,” Bob Genter, president of SAIC’s defense and civilian sector, said in a statement. “We are excited to build on our progress and continue our work at the Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division.”
Primarily based in California, the Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division researches, develops, tests, evaluates and sustains integrated, interoperable ware fighting capabilities.
