Science Applications International Corp. has won a potential four-year, $20.5M contract to support the U.S. Navy in research and development of an armored reconnaissance vehicle platform.
The cost-plus–fixed-fee contract has an initial value of nearly $19M, the Department of Defense said Thursday.
Work is initially scheduled to conclude on March 31, 2021, and could extend through April 2, 2023 if the service exercises all options.
The Navy aims to build ARVs with increased reconnaissance reach and lethality to support the military’s missions in complex and contested environment, according to a previous broad agency announcement.
Initial efforts under the project will focus on developing advanced components and subsystems for the vehicle.
The Navy obligated $1.1M at the time of award from its fiscal 2019 research, development, test and evaluation funds.
SAIC will perform work at a company facility in Reston, Va.
