The Navy's ATC&LS Division, under the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division, helps the fleet identify and track targets in combat and air traffic control environments.
Under this contract, SAIC will provide technical and management support services to support ATC&LS Division's research, design, development, training and logistic support.
