MCLEAN, Va., 20 Aug. 2010. Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC) won the Total Application Services for Enterprise Requirements (TASER) contract from the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) to research and implement innovative solutions to emerging critical geospatial intelligence requirements. The multiple award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract has a five-year base period and a total value of $1 billion for all awardees.
Under the TASER contract, SAIC and other contractors will compete for work supporting NGA's mission in all four of the TASER functional categories: engineering and trade studies, pilots and prototypes, integration and deployment, and application sustainment. SAIC's work on subsequent task orders will expand the company's mission capability integrator role.
NGA, a Department of Defense (DOD) combat support agency and a member of the national Intelligence Community, seeks to provide timely, relevant, accurate geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) in support of national security.
"We look forward to continuing our service to the NGA by evaluating and integrating new geospatial technologies and sustaining current GEOINT applications and infrastructure services," says Stu Shea, SAIC group president.
