• Take the test. Computer Sciences Corp. will help the Defense Department evaluate tactics, techniques and procedures used to coordinate operations among the branches of the military. Under a five-year, $100 million contract signed last month, CSC will support DOD's Joint Test and Evaluation programs.

    CSC will provide engineering, analysis and test services for evaluation of projects within the Office of the Secretary of Defense, the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps. The company will perform the work at Defense installations throughout the United States. 3D Research Corp. of Huntsville, Ala., also will provide testing and evaluation services under the contract.

  • New ideas. The Air Force Space Warfare Center has signed a cooperative R&D agreement with SGI Federal of Silver Spring, Md., to develop, test and evaluate command and control technologies.

    The purpose of the agreement, SGI officials said, is to improve space support for area commanders. The Air Force and SGI will process data gathered from space to provide commanders an integrated picture of the battlefield.

    They will examine command, control, communications and systems technologies, such as those that provide data and video feeds from unmanned aircraft, to see how systems can be integrated into a common operation. Their goal is to give commanders the best possible information for decision-making.

  • Support contract. Science Applications International Inc. of San Diego will provide technical support to the Navy under a $53 million contract awarded Oct. 23.

    The Naval Supply Systems Command awarded the five-year indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity, cost-plus-fixed fee Omnibus II contract. SAIC will perform independent analysis and technical studies at NAVSUP in Mechanicsburg, Pa., and its field offices.
