SAIC Gets Navy Contract to Overhaul Missile Defense Subsystems

Jeff Brody

Science Applications International Corp. has won a five-year, $41.8M contract to overhaul and repair antenna systems and directors for the U.S. Navy’s ship missile defense platforms.

The company will provide machined parts, waveguide kits, components and technical services needed to meet overhaul requirements for the MK-82 directors and AN/SPG-62 antenna systems, the Department of Defense said Friday.

MK-82 and AN/SPG-62 function as components of the AEGIS combat system’s MK-99 Fire Control System. The FCS’ components work to support targeting and countering against missile and aircraft threats.

Work will take place in Bedford, Crane and Springville, Ind., through June 2024.

Naval Surface Warfare Center launched a competition for the contract and received two proposals. The service branch will initially obligate a total of $873K from combined fiscal 2016 through 2019 funds.

Raytheon produces the FCS under a $72.4M contract with the Navy.
