MCLEAN, Va., July 6 (UPI) -- The U.S. Army has selected SAIC for design, development and production efforts for its Vigilant Pursuit program.

Vigilant pursuit will be an in-the-field system that combines human and signals intelligence capabilities -- including cross-cueing and tipping -- to identify persons of interest.

The contract was given by the U.S. Army/Research Development and Engineering Command Intelligence and Information Warfare Directorate and is worth about $37 million.

The contract is a single-award, firm-fixed-priced vehicle with a one-year period of performance.

"We look forward to providing the U.S. Army a Vigilant Pursuit system that leverages a flexible, extensible and modular architecture, enabling multi-functional teams to execute their mission-essential tasks and support maneuver-element missions," said John Thomas, senior vice president and business unit general manager at Science Applications International Corp.

Vigilant Pursuit will be a crew-served system of Army Multi-Functional Teams for intelligence collection, exploitation and analysis to generate actionable intelligence as well as time-sensitive detection, tracking and locating of key targets.

SAIC said its work will include system design, production, testing, delivery, spares, new equipment training and field service representative services.
