MCLEAN, Va., Dec. 21 (UPI) -- Operational command-and-control technology support will be provided to the U.S. Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic by SAIC of Virginia.

The services by Science Applications International Corp. will be delivered through a multiple-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract.

The award has a one-year base period and four one-year options. Its value is more than $88 million if all options are exercised.

"We are excited to offer SAIC's quality engineering services and C2 systems expertise to SSC Atlantic in support of its mission to provide the warfighter with operational command-and-control systems and critical IT services," said Jim Thigpen, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager.

The Operational C2 office of SSC Atlantic's Command and Control Systems Department provides the engineering and technical services needed for C2 IT support to the U.S. Department of Defense and other agencies. SAIC will support it with program management, technical engineering, integrated logistics, configuration and data management.

Programs, units and systems that will be supported include the Joint Combatant Commands, the Joint Explosive Ordnance Disposal Decision Support System and Joint Counter-Improvised Explosive Device Radio-Controlled Electronic Warfare systems.

The Navy contracted five other firms under the overall award.
