Work includes modernizing Falconer weapons system
Reston-based Fortune 500 contractor Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC) has received a $319 million contract to modernize and maintain the Air Force’s Falconer weapon system, the company announced Wednesday.
Under the Falconer Air Operations Center Weapon System Sustainment contract, an SAIC team will work with Kessel Run, a division of the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center’s digital directorate, and operate, maintain and modernize the service’s Falconer weapon system, by providing engineering and technical innovation, including cloud assessment, planning and migration services. The Falconer system is used by the service for planning and carrying out air and space operations.
“The Falconer program is a strategic win for SAIC that combines our capabilities in command and control and leadership in cloud migration and digital modernization,” Michael LaRouche, president of SAIC’s national security and space sector, said in a statement. “We know our nation must transform command and control systems to retain our advantage. SAIC is committed to be an unbiased transformation agent. We are leading change. The Falconer program is another in a series of wins demonstrating the confidence the [Department of Defense] has in our abilities.”
SAIC employs more than 25,000 people and reported $7.4 billion in revenue in fiscal 2022.
