The Department of Defense Information Analysis Center has awarded Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC) a $126 million single-award task order to research and develop modeling and simulation enhancements to support the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command (DEVCOM) Ground Vehicle Systems Center (GVSC) in Warren.
During the five-year contract, SAIC will develop a broad range of software-intensive systems, including ground combat modeling and simulation, software-in-the-loop systems integration laboratories, and lab-based assessments of life cycle systems architectures.
“We are excited to support GVSC in its important role in providing world-class engineering across the acquisition life cycle,” says Bob Genter, president of SAIC’s Defense and Civilian Sector. “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 builds full-scale prototypes for testing, such as weapon systems, through a closely managed supply chain. It will model the new ground combat vehicle, along with ensuring the vehicles remain updated and sustainable into the future.
These systems and models will all work to integrate and sustain technology solutions for DOD crewed and unmanned ground combat and combat support systems, improving the effectiveness of current forces and ensure future superiority.
A Fortune 500 technology company, SAIC’s portfolio offers state-of-the-art software integration across the defense, space, civilian, and intelligence markets. The company employs more than 26,000 people and has an annual revenue of around $7.2 billion.
