Science Applications International Corp. has won a contract from the Navy potentially worth as much as $74.3 million to provide software for a program designed to protect U.S. military installations around the globe from terrorist attacks, the Defense Department said March 5.
Under the firm-fixed-price contract, SAIC will furnish software, equipment and technologies for 66 installations under the Anti-Terrorism Force Protection Ashore Program Systems, DOD said.
The work covers preventive and corrective maintenance to sustain all Anti-Terrorism Force Protection Ashore Systems, associated equipment and software, DOD said. The agreement provides centralized comprehensive lifecycle sustainment support for all of the hardware, software, firmware and cabling or other signal and data transmission subsystems necessary for the systems to function as intended.
The Navy is intially providing $3.6 million and plans to provide another $17.5 million in April. The contract also contains five unexercised options, which if exercised would increase cumulative contract value to $74.3 million. The estimated completion date is March 2014.
The Naval Facilities Engineering and Expeditionary Warfare Center, Port Hueneme, Calif., is the contracting activity.
