Communication Infrastructure Development For Department of Transportation

SAIC : 02 September, 2010  (Application Story)
The US Department of Transportation has commissioned SAIC to develop the IntelliDrive wireless communications infrastructure for vehicles
Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) has been awarded a new contract from the US Department of Transportation (DOT) to help demonstrate real-world applications and support development of the DOT's IntelliDrive Program, the department's planned new communications infrastructure .The contract has a two year base period of performance, three one-year options and a total value of more than $16 million, if all options are exercised. Work will be performed primarily in Michigan.

IntelliDrive is a multimodal initiative that aims to enable safe, interoperable networked wireless communications among vehicles, infrastructure, and passengers' personal communications devices. It makes use of the capabilities of wireless technology to help make surface transportation more safe, smart and green. The goal of IntelliDrive is to ultimately enhance the safety, mobility and quality of life of all Americans, while helping to reduce the environmental impact of surface transportation. Under the contract, SAIC will support the DOT's Michigan IntelliDrive Test Bed. The company will provide operation, management, and maintenance services to help ensure continued research, testing, and demonstration of IntelliDrive concepts, standards, applications, and potential products. This test bed will help demonstrate the effectiveness and value of IntelliDrive applications and facilitate nationwide deployment.

'We look forward to supporting the US DOT as they develop a system that will take advantage of the potentially transformative capabilities of wireless technology, furthering the department's efforts to make surface transportation more smart, safe, and environmentally friendly,' said Glenn San Giacomo, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager.
