San Diego CA (SPX) Sep 19, 2006
Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) announced today TEAMSAIC was selected to negotiate a firm fixed-price contract to support the integration of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Active Layered Theater Ballistic Missile Defense (ALTBMD). The contract will establish a six-year period of performance with an estimated value of $95 million. Most of the work will be performed in the Netherlands.

NATO is working to tie existing and planned national weapon systems, sensors, battle management, command, control and communications into an integrated defense for the protection of alliance military forces and critical assets. The SAIC-led multinational team will assist in this effort by developing and verifying proposed ALTBMD architectures using an integration test bed that it will design and operate under the contract.

"We are pleased to bring the combined capabilities of our transatlantic team to provide an integrated systems solution for effective alliance defense," said Beverly Seay, SAIC senior vice president and general manager of the Strategies, Simulation and Training Business Unit.

"Through the application of advanced architectures, modeling, simulation, and extensive prototyping, TEAMSAIC will help the ALTBMD Program Office utilize NATO's existing capability to create an effective and efficient air and missile defense system. We look forward to collaborating with our customer on this important program."

George Singley, president of SAIC's Engineering, Training and Logistics Group said, "This is an important win for SAIC and our teammates. We all share a strategic commitment to the success of NATO's ALTBMD program and to helping our customers attack their most difficult challenges."

The members of TEAMSAIC are drawn from six NATO nations including France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Team members include: Datamat SpA, Diehl BGT Defence GmbH and Co. KG, European Aerodynamic Defence Systems (EADS) - Space, Industrieanlagen-Betriebsgesellschaft mbH (IABG), QinetiQ, the Raytheon Company, Thales, ThalesRaytheonSystems, and the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research (TNO).
