  • 07-Sep-2010 10:06 EDT

Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) has been awarded a Basic Ordering Agreement (BOA) to provide research and development support to the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Crane Division. The multiple-award BOA has a five-year period of performance and is valued at $49 million for all awardees. Work will be performed in Crane, IN, and at contractor facilities as required. The Crane Division is one of five divisions of NSWC that maintains a full spectrum of research, development, acquisition, test and evaluation, and support capability for surface warfare combat and weapon systems and hull, mechanical, and electrical systems. If awarded a contract under the BOA, SAIC will provide research and development support in areas including strategic systems, special operations hardware, electronic warfare, radar, energy and power systems, and defense security systems. SAIC has also been awarded a contract by the Navy's Military Sealift Command (MSC) to provide data center, information technology (IT), and disaster recovery site support. The follow-on contract has a one-year base period of performance, four one-year options, and a total value of more than $49 million if all options are exercised. The MSC works with the maritime industry and U.S. federal agencies to find innovative maritime solutions to ocean transportation challenges. Under the contract, SAIC will help enable ashore and afloat communications, including IT services, for MSC's approximately 110 noncombatant, civilian-crewed ships as they deliver supplies and conduct specialized missions throughout the world.
