Computer Sciences Books Another $243M In Missile Defense IT Support Contracts

El Segundo CA (SPX) Nov 18, 2005
Computer Sciences has announced that it has been awarded a contract to continue supporting the Department of Defense's Missile Defense Agency (MDA) with scientific, engineering and technical assistance at the Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD) Joint Program Office (JPO).

CSC estimates the value of the award, which has a 15-month base period and two six-month options, to be approximately $243 million if all options are exercised.

The new agreement follows and is incremental to a three-year contract signed with the MDA in 2002 under which CSC provides similar services.

Under the terms of the new agreement, CSC will continue to assist the JPO in executing the GMD element of the MDA's Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS), which is designed to intercept and destroy enemy ballistic missiles. Specific services include program, acquisition and business management; systems engineering; testing and evaluation; program protection; operational status reporting; and site activation.

"Being selected to continue providing support on this contract illustrates the MDA's confidence in CSC," said Aaron Fuller, president of CSC's Defense Mission Engineering & Integration Division.

"This award underscores more than 10 years of experience in providing the MDA with significant operational results. We look forward to continuing our work with the MDA to complete the initial development, verification and fielding of the ground-based element of the BMDS."

Teaming with CSC are Science Applications International Corporation, of San Diego, Calif.; SYColeman, a division of L-3 Communications, of New York, N.Y.; COLSA, of Huntsville, Ala.; and more than 30 other small businesses located in Virginia and Alabama.
