OCT. 18'The Navy has awarded contracts worth roughly $85.3 million to four companies to provide research and development on infrastructure engineering at the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center in San Diego.

The independent five-year contracts call for the companies to support command, control, communications, computers and intelligence work at the center's San Diego facility under an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity, multiple-award contract.

The contracts were awarded last month to Anteon Corp. of Fairfax, Va., for $15.2 million; Booz, Allen & Hamilton Inc. of McLean, Va., for $21.8 million; Computer Sciences Corp. for $24.6 million, and Science Applications International Corp. of San Diego for $23.7 million.

The work will support initiatives including the Joint Maritime Command Information System integration/evaluation; Global Command and Control System-Maritime Test & Evaluation; Defense Information Infrastructure-Common Operating Environment, and Joint Training and Simulation Center.

Initial work will involve support of systems engineering integration for the many types of network components required by the Command and Intelligence Systems Division.
