MCLEAN, Va., March 6 (UPI) -- The U.S. Air Force Life Cycle Management Center has tapped SAIC to provide command-and-control information services development.

The service will be for the Air Combat Command and will be conducted under an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract to multiple awardees.

The contract period is for six years and has a value of $249 million for all seven awardees.

Science Applications International Corp. said that under the contract, it will provide C2 applications information services development for air, space and cyberspace domains through task orders it will bid on. The aim is to assist the migration of capability from older applications and hardware to more modern infrastructure.

"We look forward to providing applications and information services to the Air Force warfighter, enabling them to produce decision-quality information at the right place and time," said Dan Harris, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager.

SAIC said work provided will be performed in Virginia and West Virginia.
