SAIC wins $126M Army task order
Reston contractor will perform R&D for ground combat systems
Reston-based Fortune 500 government contractor Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC) was awarded a $126 million, single-award task order to research and develop modeling and simulation enhancements for the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Ground Vehicle Systems Center in Michigan, the company announced Thursday.
Under the five-year task order from the Department of Defense, SAIC will work on ground combat systems and software integrations and perform lab-based assessments to extend the command’s engineering life cycle.
“We are excited to support GVSC in its important role in providing world-class engineering across the acquisition life cycle. The Army’s ground dominance within the Multi Domain Operations construct is critical, and our team’s unique competencies and domain expertise in areas like digital engineering and modeling and simulation will help them sustain that for years to come,” SAIC Defense & Civilian Sector President Bob Genter said in a statement. “On behalf of the entire team, we look forward to contributing to Army readiness and modernization.”
Last week, SAIC announced it plans to purchase Arlington-based Halfaker and Associates LLC, a technology solutions provider to the federal government’s health, intelligence, defense and security sectors.
