The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center (SSC) Atlantic awarded Science Applications International Corp. a task order to perform command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C4ISR) engineering upgrades and integration for tactical vehicles, the McLean, VA-based company announced May 11.
