Science Applications International Corp. has won a $112 million contract from the Department of the Air Force for cloud based command and control development in support of the Advanced Battle Management System.
Under the contract, SAIC is expected to provide mission-ready, available and resilient command and control for the department’s Program Executive Office for Command, Control, Communications and Battle Management as well as its combatant commands, the enterprise announced on Tuesday.
“SAIC is passionate about applying technology and innovation to the future battlespace,” emphasized Michael LaRouche, president of SAIC’s national security and space unit and two-time Wash100 Award recipient.
“We are excited to be selected for this program to help modernize command and control systems and enable the DOD’s Joint All Domain Command and Control vision,” he added.
SAIC’s responsibilities under the award include creating, developing, integrating and operating the Air Force ABMS CBC2 microservices in support of the department’s goal of enhancing the said program and JADC2.
In conducting these efforts, the company will oversee multiple industry teams working to provide a suite of software applications and infrastructure. CBC2’s first application is intended to deliver modernized air defense capabilities to the North American Aerospace Defense Command and Pacific Air Forces to assist in safeguarding the U.S. from evolving threats.
SAIC has recently won multiple awards regarding command and control. In September of last year, SAIC was selected for the Advanced Battle Management System Digital Infrastructure Consortium, which is currently developing digital capabilities that allow multi-domain operations between the Air Force, Space Force and Joint Force.
Earlier, the company won a $319 million contract from the Air Force to provide engineering and technical services to ensure that the Falconer weapons system is secure and up to date.
SAIC is sponsoring ExecutiveBiz’s Homeland Security Forum on Feb. 7. The event will host public and private sector executives and homeland security leaders to consider challenges and opportunities facing the nation as DHS works to drive a culture of relentless resilience across the U.S.
