MCLEAN, Va., May 5 (UPI) -- SAIC is to provide technical services to the U.S. Navy Sea Systems Command under a task order with a potential value of $141 million.
The services are for NAVSEA's Program Executive Office Integrated Warfare Systems, which manages surface ship and submarine combat technologies and systems, and coordinates open systems architecture across ship platforms.

SAIC will also support the development, coordination and integration of technical solutions to problems inherent in the acquisition and integration of major combat systems.
"SAIC is proud to continue its support to PEO IWS," said Tom Watson, SAIC senior vice president and general manager of the Navy and Marine Corps Customer Group. "We have supported this contract for more than five years, and we are honored to have been selected to continue to provide our engineering support services to PEO IWS 1.0, 7.0 and 9.0 in pursuit of their critical mission to enhance U.S. Naval capabilities and protect our nation."
