SAIC Unveils Bid for Army's Infantry Squad Vehicle Effort

Science Applications International Corp. presented a vehicle it developed with Polaris for the U.S. Army's Infantry Squad Vehicle program during an Association of the U.S. Army event in Washington, D.C., Washington Business Journal reported Monday.

The Reston, Va.-based firm announced in August that it teamed up with Polaris to offer the Polaris DAGOR A1 vehicle, which is intended to carry nine warfighters as well as their cargo.

The Army also selected General Motors' defense business and a team comprised of Oshkosh and Flyer Next's defense segments for the effort.

Jim Scanlon, executive vice president and general manager of SAIC's defense systems arm, said the ISV program represents the company's efforts to integrate control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance systems and transition cloud capabilities closer to the edge.

In a prior earnings call, SAIC CEO and 2019 Wash100 winner Nazzic Keene said the company intends to take “a very different posture and position“ for its partnership with Polaris and focus on C4ISR integration.

DAGOR is slated for testing activities at the Aberdeen Test Center in Maryland ahead of further evaluation at Fort Bragg in North Carolina.
