MCLEAN, Va., March 28 (UPI) -- The U.S. Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic will receive networking and services support from Virginia's SAIC.

Services from Science Applications International Corp. will occur over a period of up to five years under a multiple-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract worth as much as $230 million if all options are exercised.

"SAIC is extremely pleased to support SSC Atlantic and the warfighter in their efforts to solve complex problems and provide support in the areas of testing, training and other IT services," said Thomas Watson, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager.

The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center supports U.S. military forces through the development, acquisition and life-cycle support of command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance systems, information technology and space capabilities.

SAIC's contract calls for joint basing and technology transition support as needed and includes program management, IT services, C4ISR systems support, advanced training and education support.

Three other companies are party to the award and all will compete for task orders under the contract.
