SAIC contracted to provide engineering support to the Enhanced Tactical Automated Security System
Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) has been awarded a new prime contract by the US Navy Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic to provide technical and engineering services in support of the Enhanced Tactical Automated Security System (ETASS). The multiple award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract has a one-year base period of performance, four one-year options, and a total ceiling value of more than $37 million for both awardees, if all options are exercised.

ETASS is a command-and-control platform that integrates a wide range of sensors and other technologies. It is a deployable, integrated security system designed for a variety of force-protection missions. The system includes standoff and perimeter-detection technology, immediate visual assessment, command-and-control display equipment, and supporting power and communications infrastructures. These elements are enhanced through the integration of ground-surveillance radars, fiber-optic sensors, thermal imagers and closed-circuit television cameras. Under the contract, SAIC will help enhance the system by connecting a wider range of sensors and assessment devices, as well as command and control display element systems, into a more tightly integrated security framework. The company will also provide system upgrades to ensure seamless integration and interoperability.

'We look forward to expanding our relationship with this important customer by providing quality engineering and technical services in support of ETASS, helping ensure our soldiers have the technology they need to continue accomplishing their force protection mission,' said John Thomas, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager.
