Science Applications International Corp. has been awarded a multiple award, indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract from the U.S. Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) with a ceiling value of $982 million to provide products and services within the Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV) Family of Systems (FOS). The contract carries a five-year period of performance and may extend to 10 years, if all options are exercised.
“SAIC is excited to continue this relationship with the Navy to support the expansion of unmanned surface vehicles within the Navy’s repertoire of technology,” said Jim Scanlon, SAIC executive vice president and general manager of the Defense Systems Group.
SAIC will deliver products and services to the USV FOS functional areas, as well as the platforms and systems that comprise the Navy’s future unmanned surface fleet to include: payloads; non-payload sensors; mission support systems; autonomy and vehicle control systems; ashore and host platform elements, and logistics and sustainment. SAIC has delivered strong proofs of mission engineering expertise to the Navy in the past, which will be a valued asset in the anticipated expansion of USV use.
“Our naval forces need to be machines of modern efficiency. The Navy needs to maintain and modernize its technology assets to meet current and future operational requirements. This contract will help them meet this mission,” Scanlon said.
SAIC is one of 40 awardees for the IDIQ-MAC.
