RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The U.S. Navy awarded a $171.5 million single-award contract to Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAIC) to continue providing a range of training solutions, including virtual and synthetic training environments, as part of the Fleet Deployment Training Program supporting U.S. Navy Fleet Forces (USFF) and associated Fleet commands and activities. The renewed prime contract has a 10-month base period of performance, four one-year options, and one six-month extension option.
“SAIC is proud to continue to bring sailors from across the globe together through live, virtual, and constructive training environments to enhance Navy tactics and training required to certify the readiness of units and Battle Groups to meet deployed mission requirements,” said Jim Scanlon, SAIC executive vice president and general manager of the Defense Systems Group. “Based on our responsive and high-quality past performance, we can assure the Fleet that SAIC remains highly committed to the mission success of the Navy and our warfighters.”
Under the contract, SAIC will continue to provide the requisite Fleet training program support necessary to facilitate the certification of Fleet forces. SAIC also will provide services to assist USFF and associated Fleet commands/activities in execution of pre-deployment and sustainment training within the framework of the Fleet Training Continuum, Fleet Response Training Plan, Optimized Fleet Response Plan, and joint training requirements/capabilities.
