Science Applications International Corp (SAIC) has won a new contract with the US Air Force Life Cycle and Management Center, Force Protection Division to help the US Department of Defense Combatant Commands mitigate small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS) threats and protect US forces.

Counter drone specialist Liteye Systems is among technology providers working with SAIC.

Under the contract, SAIC will provide a broad range of integrated logistics support and sustainment services necessary to modernise defenses against the rapidly evolving threat of sUAS in the US, host nations, and global contingency locations. The single-award contract has a one-year base period of performance with three one-year options, and is worth up to USD90 million.

SAIC currently supports the U.S. Army’s counter-sUAS programs and will continue its work through this new Air Force Contract.

SAIC technology innovations will be leveraged to enhance the ability to neutralize sUAS threats. SAIC will be primarily responsible for repairing and maintaining counter-sUAS systems, equipment, and software, including help desk support, logistics, corrective and preventative maintenance, training, and supply chain management. The company will also provide innovative ways to modernize systems.

SAIC will provide these services to several Combatant Commands, including Central Command, European Command, Indo-Pacific Command, and Strategic Command., as well as the US Space Force.
