Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC) has been awarded the potential $737 million U.S. Air Force Modeling and Simulation Support Services (AFMS3) 2.0 contract to implement, integrate and develop modeling and simulation (M&S), the company reported on Thursday.
“The Air Force and DoD rely on M&S for operational readiness and mission preparedness. As part of this new work with the Air Force, we will provide live virtual constructive simulations to prepare airmen and other users for real-life situations,” said Michael LaRouche, executive vice president and general manager of SAIC’s National Security Customer Group.
SAIC will also drive M&S training and analysis standards for the Air Force, Department of Defense, and other federal organizations. SAIC will work with the Air Force Agency for M&S (AFAMS) and the M&S communities to deliver innovative solutions that support global operations for the warfighter.
“By bringing exceptional experience and understanding of the complex DoD M&S operational environment, SAIC will support the Air Force’s transition to future warfighting capability like Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2) for better battlespace awareness and decision-making across all domains,” LaRouche added.
Under the terms of the contract, SAIC will help AFAMS develop policies, architectures and standards to support emerging technologies. Additionally, the company will prepare warfighters for readiness across all domains. SAIC will deliver M&S support for the Air Force medical, analytical, test and evaluation and acquisition communities.
SAIC will leverage its expertise in integrated training, data analytics, and cybersecurity for its winning solution. The award aligns with the company’s focus on command and control, IT modernization, digital engineering, and digital transformation. The single award contract was released by General Service Administration (GSA) FEDSIM on the GSA OASIS contract vehicle.
