Science Applications International Corp. has won a potential five-year contract to provide research and development support services to the Naval Submarine Medical Research Laboratory, the company announced Monday.
The contract is potentially worth $22 million over one base year and four option years and was awarded by the Naval Medical Logistics Command.
R&D support services will cover investigations of medical, psychological, physiological and other issues associated with the health and performance of naval personnel in operational and non-operational settings.
“We look forward to continuing to provide the NSMRL with subject matter expertise relating to Navy and Department of Defense-wide medical issues to support undersea warfighters,” said Steve Comber, senior vice president and health solutions business unit general manager.
Research and testing will examine submariner wellness, submariner psychological factors, shipboard force health protection, human factors and undersea warfighter capabilities.
The NSMRL’s research focuses on the medical, psychological and physiological interactions between humans and submarines.
