SPA to Support SAIC’s Work on Navy’s Hypersonic Program

Systems Planning and Analysis has announced that it will support Science Applications International Corporation's work on the Navy's hypersonic weapons program as a subcontractor. 

SAIC is the prime holder of a five-year $63.5M contract to support the Global Deterrence and Defense Department at Naval Surface Warfare Center in Crane, Indiana, the company said.

“Conventional Prompt Strike is one of the leading Advanced Hypersonics Programs and SPA is proud to be working with the Department of Defense and NSWC Crane on such an important and groundbreaking endeavor,” said SPA President and CEO William Vantine. 

Under the terms of the subcontract, SPA will work in the areas of program management support, budget support, system safety, risk management, scheduling, system and subsystem test and evaluation and weapon-platform integration. 

SPA said that advanced hypersonic technologies will serve as the advanced systems that warfighters need to accomplish critical mission objectives. 

SPA is a defense and space company that specializes in advanced analytics, software tool development, system engineering and safety analysis, among others.  

SAIC received the prime contract in July as a single-award task order under the SeaPort Next Generation multiple-award contract. 

The deal includes a one-year base period of performance and four one-year options. It covers work in research and development, engineering, cybersecurity, modeling and simulation, system safety, configuration management, logistics, support equipment and program support. 

“SAIC looks forward to the opportunity to support NSWC Crane with our proven ability to fill gaps, handle project surges, and use the inherent knowledge we have accumulated over the past 30 years to solve complex technical challenges," said SAIC Executive Vice President Jim Scanlon.
