SAIC gets simulation contract

The Army Simulation, Training and Instrumentation Command last month awarded part of its $4 billion Omnibus Contract to Science Applications International Corp.

The San Diego company will provide support for war games and automated simulations conducted by STRICOM under Lot III of the Omnibus Contract. The value of SAIC's portion of the deal is included in the eight-year indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract.

SAIC will perform most of its work for the contract in Orlando, Fla., where it operates facilities in the Central Florida Research Park, officials said.

Beverly J. Kitaoka, a group senior vice president for SAIC, said the company will provide simulation that will help maintain 'combat readiness and planning for future missions across the entire spectrum of conflict.'

Through the overall contract, STRICOM plans to acquire a variety of simulation, training, modeling, test and instrumentation products and services for both the Army and Defense Department, company officials said.
