SAIC Inks $63M Navy Deal to Support Advanced Hypersonics R&D

The U.S. Navy has awarded Reston, Virginia-based technology integrator Science Applications International Corp. a $63 million contract to deliver research, development, test and evaluation services for hypersonic advanced concepts and next-generation capabilities such as hardware-in-the-loop and software-in-the-loop simulations.

The Navy seeks support for the Strategic Systems Programs unit and the Naval Surface Warfare Center Crane Division’s strategic systems hardware division, SAIC said.

In a press release, the company stated that its work with NSWC Crane will involve recommending hypersonic advanced concepts requirements and solutions and identifying and validating enabling technologies.

SAIC added that it would assist SSP and NSWC Crane to drive “quick-reaction analysis and rapid engineering principals” across the Pentagon’s hypersonic advanced concepts.

The company said its work will also include creating new technology integration methods and inserting, enhancing, modernizing and sustaining hypersonic advanced concepts.

In 2020, SAIC received a $63.5 million Navy task order under the SeaPort Next Generation contract to support NSWC Crane’s global deterrence and defense department, which is responsible for advanced hypersonic technologies.
