John Thomas, senior vice president and business unit general manager, said the company intends to integrate and field technology collection and identification devices for biometrics warfare.
The single-award, firm-fixed price, cost-plus-fixed-fee and cost-reimbursement order contains eight base months and one option year.
SAIC won the award through the Army’s Information Technology Enterprise Solutions-2 Services contract vehicle.
