RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAIC) won a new contract with the U.S. Air Force Life Cycle and Management Center, Force Protection Division to help the U.S. Department of Defense Combatant Commands mitigate small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS) threats and protect U.S. forces.
Under the contract, SAIC will provide a broad range of integrated logistics support and sustainment services necessary to modernize defenses against the rapidly evolving threat of sUAS in the U.S., host nations, and global contingency locations. The single-award contract has a one-year base period of performance with three one-year options, and is worth up to $90 million.
SAIC currently supports the U.S. Army’s counter-sUAS programs and will continue its work through this new Air Force Contract.
“SAIC’s past performance with the Army for more than nine years demonstrates our ability to provide the Combatant Commands with a full range of support and sustainment services for modernization of counter-sUAS that will help contain this growing tactical threat,” said Michael LaRouche, president of SAIC’s National Security and Space sector. “We are incredibly proud and honored to continue this important work.”
SAIC technology innovations will be leveraged to enhance the ability to neutralize sUAS threats. SAIC will be primarily responsible for repairing and maintaining counter-sUAS systems, equipment, and software, including help desk support, logistics, corrective and preventative maintenance, training, and supply chain management.
