SAIC
: 03 March, 2010  (Application Story)
SAIC will use its expertise in CBRNE to supply technical support to the US Army Edgewood research centre under new contract
Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) has been awarded a contract by the US Army Research, Development and Engineering Command (RDECOM) to support the Edgewood Chemical Biological Centre (ECBC), and other customers, with CBRNE (chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive) support services. The multiple award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract has a five year period of performance, and a total value of $485 million for all awardees. Work will be performed at ECBC facilities on Aberdeen Proving Ground (APG) at SAIC offices near APG, and at other customer sites as required.

ECBC is the nation's principal research and development centre for chemical and biological warfare agent defence. It develops technology in the areas of detection, protection, and decontamination, and provides support over the entire lifecycle - from basic research through technology development, engineering design, equipment evaluation, product support, sustainability, field operations and disposal. Under the contract, SAIC will provide engineering, research and technology, and program and integration support services to ECBC and other customers including the Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical and Biological Defence (JPEOCBD), the US Army Chemical Materials Agency (CMA), the Assembled Chemical Weapons Assessment (ACWA) program manager, the 20th Support Command, the Departments of Homeland Security (DHS) and Health and Human Services (DHHS), and the FBI.

'SAIC has been providing chemical and biological defence solutions for 30 years to Department of Defence elements,' said John Ferriter, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager. 'We look forward to making use of our cumulative expertise, and providing science based, technical solutions to help these important customers enhance the Nation's defence against chemical and biological warfare and terrorism.'
