Our support ranges from assembly and installation to documentation, training, interim contractor support plans, finance and budget, and management and acquisition support.
Systems Engineering and Integration Going green is in these days. But our geographic information systems (GIS) programs were going green to help preserve and protect the environment long before it was a common business practice. Architecture and Engineering Design We offer architecture, engineering design, technical, drawing documentation development, database management, in-service engineering activity (ISEA), test and evaluation, shipboard operational verification test (SOVT), site survey, and lab support. GIS Services We provide GIS services for government and industry clients, and offer spatial data, maintenance, integration services, and training using state-of-the-art hardware and software. Notably, our software helps preserve and protect the environment. Detailed Design, Modeling, and Simulation Engineering design, interface control documentation (ICD), detailed drawing packages, quality assurance, configuration management, modeling and simulation – that’s just the beginning of the list of detailed design services SAIC offers its customers.
Systems Engineering and Integration On the front lines, few things are more important than secure, reliable command and control systems. Our company’s integration, test, systems, and logistics support is helping to keep military communications from falling into the wrong hands. Frontline C2 Systems Our teams of engineers in Charleston, S.C., and Saudi Arabia help provide both shore-based and shipboard systems integration, testing, and ongoing systems support for front-line command and control systems. Cryptologic Systems We have extensive experience with hardware integration, testing, and logistics support for a variety of cryptologic systems. Our solutions we provide help protect our nation’s most secure information and our troops. On-the-Move Communications Systems We provide engineering, integration, and logistics support for digital radio relay systems that enable warfighters to stay on the move, while tracking and communicating with their teams. Mountains and immovable objects no longer interfere with important communications.
Systems Engineering and Integration We’re proud to hear of troops overseas using the Internet to talk with loved ones back home, and see news coverage of local law enforcement agents using armored vehicles to respond to an emergency. We know we had a big hand in making it happen. No matter the client – big or small – we take pride in meeting the toughest challenges. Law Enforcement Support Working with a national law enforcement center, we help transfer excess military armored vehicles to law enforcement agencies throughout the United States, giving these vehicles new life in protecting and serving our nation’s law enforcement agencies. In-Theater Cyber Cafés Our troops in Iraq may be far from home, but thanks to our work with DoD’s innovative cyber cafés, they can keep in touch with their friends and family. Our team overcame major logistical challenges to ship 700,000 pounds of equipment from Charleston, S.C., to Iraq to aid with this important effort. Bomb Disposal We provided a near-real-time information sharing and collaboration system for state and local first responders and bomb disposal technicians which can be used to share and discuss information with other first responders throughout the country. This system provided first responders with a single system to catalog and search for critical information while in the field or in the office.
Systems Engineering and Integration
Our work is key in developing maritime patrol aircraft-to-ground system interoperability to support a Tactical Support Center (TSC) physical data exchange. We define interfacing requirements to the TSC ground support system.
SAIC’s work to increase system interoperability around the globe and support patrol aircraft communication and identification systems helps keep the skies safe for Department of Defense and commercial air traffic. Foreign Military Support Our country depends on foreign militaries for critical regional support. Some countries are allowed, as coalition partners, to purchase retired U.S. military aircraft, which our team then helps integrate and upgrade. We have supported maritime aircraft, aircraft support centers and systems, media conversion units, and air and ground systems on four continents. Engineering Command and Control Advanced Technology Services (ATS) Bringing the warfighter onto the global information grid, a services-oriented architecture (SOA)-based program, is an effort supported by our Engineering Command and Control ATS contract.

Information Technology and Assurance You’ll find our network teams around the world, deploying complex network technology solutions, performing systems engineering and integration services, and conducting information assurance and security activities to keep our military at the very top of its game. Network Security Systems We deploy and refresh network systems and network protection suites at various DoD facilities. We also monitor and maintain a worldwide virtual private network, 24/7 Tier III network support community and provide vulnerability management for fielded network security systems. Information Assurance (IA) Support Our teams provide enterprise service installation, maintenance, management and support for active directory systems. Special efforts include IA policy enforcement through network device management, IA mitigation/remediation, and Active Directory (AD) group policy objects. Health Systems Services Our IA, certification and accreditation, and vulnerability management services help keep critical military health systems information secure. We’re upgrading military health application host sites and managing daily network operations, providing network infrastructure, configuration and asset management, and help desk support.
Test and Evaluation It takes two - that is, two prime players to ensure safe aircraft recovery aboard our carriers, the shipboard and the airborne systems. SAIC is doing its part to keep both players working together – installing, testing, certifying, and supporting the shipboard and airborne approach, landing, and communication systems that make safe carrier landings possible. Shipboard Approach and Landing Systems Our teams help make sure planes land safely on the decks of our fleet’s carriers. We perform certification and accreditation, test and evaluation, and shipboard flight test coordination for shipboard support approach and landing and global positioning systems. Airborne Data Systems Company personnel perform the aircraft qualification tests of data link, flight controls, autopilot, auto-throttle, and cockpit displays, as well as shipboard system tests for glide slope control, alignment, accuracy, and stabilization. Shipboard Visual Landing Aids We’re proud to support the systems that give pilots vital information from the carrier to assist with safe landings when conditions require the use of visual landing aids. Our pre-test optimization planning, specialized aircraft system testing, and maintenance advice to fleet maintainers help these high-tech systems provide for safe and effective fleet carrier aviation operations.
Test and Evaluation
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles
Our unmanned aerial vehicle system engineering services are helping develop and integrate new air traffic control technology and communication systems with current aircraft carrier systems. Our work developing new system architectures, developing and testing requirements, and authoring interface control documents is helping move unmanned surveillance capabilities forward - every day.
Protecting the people who protect us – our military pilots and servicemen – is at the very top of our list. One way to do that is to keep them out of harm’s way in the first place. Our work on unmanned aerial vehicles is making it possible. Rotary Wing Programs Our engineers provide test planning, execution, and reporting; flight clearance support; instrumentation engineering; and reliability and maintainability services for a variety of rotary wing programs.
