Joint All Domain Command and Control efforts supported by SAICNews
August 06, 2020
RESTON, Va. Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC) has won a $950 million ceiling indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract for the maturation, demonstration, and proliferation of capability across platforms and domains, leveraging open systems design, modern software, and algorithm development in order to enable Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2).
This contract is part of a multiple award multi-level security effort to provide development and operation of systems as a unified force across all domains (air, land, sea, space, cyber, and electromagnetic spectrum) in an open architecture family of systems that enables capabilities via multiple integrated platforms.
Vinnie DiFronzo, SAIC senior vice president for Air Force and joint DOD commands, says, “We look forward to partnering with the Air Force in providing sensor integration, data management, multi-level secure compute and store, communication connectivity, and weapon integration underpinned by digital engineering to enable rapid development, experimentation, and delivery of JADC2 capabilities. SAIC will leverage investments in Internet of Battlefield Things (IOBT), DevOps/DevSecOps, multi-level security, cloud, digital (model-based systems engineering, modeling and simulation), and artificial intelligence/machine learning.”
SAIC intends to advance the Air Force’s ABMS program objectives and serve as a catalyst to the Department of Defense JADC2 vision. SAIC’s artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities will aim to speed USAF and joint decision cycles across all warfighting domains and to enhance the USAF’s objective to connect sensor to shooter.
