SAIC awarded $116M Navy tactical networks contract

The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Pacific awarded Science Applications International Corp. a prime contract worth approximately $116 million to continue to provide engineering services to the U.S. Navy’s afloat and ashore assets, the Reston, VA-based company announced August 1.

Under the contract SAIC will provide management, engineering, technical, integrated logistics support, and configuration management to the Navy’s Tactical Networks In-Service Engineering Activity (TACNET ISEA).

The single award, indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract has a three-year base period of performance and a two-year option period which, if exercised, would bring the potential value of this contract to an estimated $196 million. Work will be performed primarily in San Diego, California and Norfolk, Virginia, while some additional work will be performed on Navy ships and shore sites globally.

“We are proud to continue our support to SPAWAR Systems Center Pacific TACNET and are dedicated to ensuring the highest degree of fleet readiness. For more than 20 years, we have assisted the Navy with sustainment services for critical TACNET systems that serve as the backbone of U.S. naval vessels,” said Jim Scanlon, SAIC senior vice president and general manager of the Defense Systems Customer Group.

TACNET ISEA is responsible for the sustainment of fielded systems through end-of-life replacement, system upgrades, follow-on, or interrelated system, distant support, on-site repair, installations, and system analysis to ensure networks are performing within designed specifications.
