U.S. Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Pacific Awards SAICs Cybersecurity Contract

Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) announced today it was awarded a prime contract by the U.S. Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Pacific (SSC Pacific) to provide technical services in support of cyberspace operations. The multiple-award, indefinite-delivery indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract has a two year base period of performance, three one-year options, and a total contract ceiling value of $219 million for all awardees, if all options are exercised. Work will be performed in San Diego, Calif.

SSC Pacific is the Navy’s premier research, development, test, and evaluation laboratory for C4ISR (command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance). Under the contract, SAIC will provide cyberspace operational support as required, including the examination of the science, architecture, engineering, functionality, interface and interoperability of cyber systems, services and capabilities. SAIC may also provide support in areas including requirements analysis, concept development, software design and implementation; and systems integration. SAIC is one of four contractors that will compete for task orders under the contract.

“SAIC has demonstrated expertise and leadership in the science, system architecture and engineering of these critical cyber systems,” said Larry Cox, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager. “We look forward to leveraging that expertise in support of the operational planning and execution, and technology development required to assure superiority for the warfighter in the cyberspace domain.”
