Company will deliver mission engineering services to the 414th Supply Chain Management Squadron

RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The U.S. Air Force awarded Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE:SAIC) a $79 million task order to deliver mission engineering services to the 414th Supply Chain Management Squadron’s Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) LGM-30 Minuteman III missile system.

The squadron provides lifecycle support services that include developing enterprise demand/supply plans, developing/implementing sourcing strategies, executing the supply plan, and executing cognizant engineering authority. These services will meet customer requirements for the Minuteman III Intercontinental Ballistic Missile and associated launch systems, peacekeeper, and future global strike missile systems as well as weapons trainers, support equipment, support for command and control, and other weapon systems worldwide.

“As part of this new task order, SAIC will partner with the squadron to advance its mission by providing end-to-end product support and sustainment solutions using technologies like model-based systems engineering to reduce risk and optimize the Air Force supply chain,” said Michael LaRouche, executive vice president and general manager of SAIC’s National Security Group. “The 414th mission is critical to our national defense, and our newly designed solutions will enhance Air Force readiness.”

Under the five-year task order, awarded as part of the Information Analysis Center Multiple Award Contract (IAC MAC), SAIC will analyze and recommend solutions that will make the missile system more reliable, easier to maintain, and better able to interoperate with other systems. SAIC will also focus on the suitability, lifecycle management, failure testing, and manufacturing sourcing for the systems and its associated equipment. SAIC will address nuclear hardness requirements, challenges, and testing while leveraging our mission engineering and integration capabilities, including model-based systems engineering.
