In May, SAIC won a potential $200 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract for delivery of laboratory operations and support services to the Defense Intelligence Agency. LaRouche cited the company’s over three decades of experience in providing DIA with support and transformative platforms and reiterated its commitment to continue doing so.

The potential $90 million work is aimed at helping DOD’s combatant commands counter threats posed by small unmanned aircraft systems. USAF also awarded SAIC a $99 million IDIQ for modeling development support for the service branch’s weapons systems.
SAIC reported that it booked approximately $664 million in space and intelligence contracts during the second quarter of fiscal year 2022. The deals with undisclosed customers in the space sector and the intelligence community provide for artificial intelligence, cloud, cybersecurity, digital engineering, information technology modernization, mission operations and technology integration services. Commenting on the August report, LaRouche said the awards underscore customers’ confidence in SAIC.
“We look forward to continuing to help our customers harness the power of digital engineering, cloud, AI, cybersecurity innovation and more with new ideas, bold objectives, and innovative solutions to meet their extremely complex challenges,” he added.

Aside from contract awards, SAIC announced the appointment of David Ray as senior vice president for its space organization. He joined the company after leading the government and defense business of FLIR Systems. Commenting on Ray’s move to SAIC in March, LaRouche said the new SVP’s extensive market experience will help the company support its customers while expanding its footprint.
SAIC also launched its Rugged Apps offering in December. It was developed to strengthen the security of mobile applications, provide defense against cyber attacks and comply with National Information Assurance Partnership requirements for agencies.
“Rugged Apps offers SAIC’s innovative scanning and testing services for these popular applications, enabling the demonstration of meeting the government’s rigorous security requirements. After commercial apps are ruggedized, they can be securely used by the military, federal agencies and state governments,” said LaRouche.
The executive joined SAIC in 2019, bringing experience in leading advancements in satellite systems, military command and control, ISR, communications, digital transformation, cyber, automation and special mission applications. He spent over a decade at the former Raytheon company and worked at Lockheed Martin and Hughes earlier in his career.
LaRouche assumed his current post as SAIC NSS president in October 2020, when the company reorganized its business structure into two segments in an effort to advance business strategy and growth priorities.
