Science Applications International Corp. landed a potential seven-year, $655M contract from the U.S. Air Force to help the Space and Missile Systems Center's innovation and prototyping directorate modernize, operate and sustain satellite ground systems.

Contract work will also cover the provision of system modifications, engineering, planning, system administration, cybersecurity and integration services, the company said Tuesday.

The contract has a base period of five years and may be extended through a two-year option. Work will take place at Air Force bases in Colorado and New Mexico.

SMC seeks to support the U.S. Space Force's operations, research, development and demonstration activities through the contract.

“This contract expands our relationship with the Air Force, which we have proudly supported since 1972, and the new United States Space Force,“ said Michael LaRouche, executive vice president and general manager at SAIC’s national security group.

The ground systems enterprise platform will employ the Multi-Mission Satellite Operations Center command and control framework along with associated equipment, tools and facilities.
