Company to Provide Management and Analytical Services in Support of AF Cyber Capabilities
Science Applications International Corporation has been awarded a prime contract by the U.S. Air Force (AF) Intelligence Surveillance Reconnaissance (ISR) Agency to support AF Network Operations (AFNETOPS) with management and analytical support. The single-award contract has a one year base period of performance, three one-year options and a total value of more than $12 million if all options are exercised. Work will be performed primarily at Barksdale Air Force Base, La.

AFNETOPS manages and secures all AF network operations, providing the warfighting structure to fly and fight in cyberspace, and ensuring coherency, responsiveness, and agility of network defense against increasingly numerous and sophisticated adversaries. Under the contract, SAIC will provide management and analytical support in areas including command and control; developing and implementing tools and procedures for cyber defense and attack operations, and incorporating support and exploitation capabilities and functions.

'We look forward to supporting AFNETOPS and the evolution of the AF network warfare operations mission to a cyber capability with integrated processes, procedures, data and systems to support air, space and electromagnetic spectrum operations,' said Larry Cox, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager.
