Science Applications International, a provider of information technology, systems integration and e-business solutions, has announced that it has won a new single-award contract from the General Services Administration to upgrade air traffic control radio systems for the US Air Force.
The initial phase of contract performance will be performed on a time-and- materials basis, while later phases will be firm-fixed-price. The contract has a one-year base period, four one-year options and a ceiling value of more than $80 million if all options are exercised.
Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) will provide engineering services to include recommending new radios and hardware, and procuring and installing equipment as required. The contract will allow the Air Force to completely upgrade its air traffic control radio systems with new technology that will help improve overall system availability and reduce long-term maintenance costs. Work will be performed primarily in San Diego, with installations at USAF locations worldwide.
