SAIC wins $2.9B Army contract for software development, maintenance


Science Applications International Corp.(SAIC) has won a $2.9 billion contract for integration, software development, and other lifecycle support to the U.S. Army, the company said in a statement.

Under the potential five-year task order, SAIC will develop and integrate advanced technologies throughout the lifecycle, including software development and maintenance. Applications include air and ballistic missile defense, fire support, close combat, manned and unmanned aviation, command, control and communications, interoperability, intelligence/surveillance, and automatic test equipment.

Work under the task order will support the Army’s Combat Capabilities Development Command Aviation & Missile Center, Systems Simulation, Software and Integration Directorate, says SAIC.

Work previously performed as part two General Services Administration’s (GSA’s) OASIS professional services contracts, Battlefield Systems Engineering Services (BSES) and Strategic Systems Engineering Services (SSES), will now operate under GSA’s OASIS Software Life Cycle Development contract, according to SAIC.
