Science Applications International Corp. has secured a potential five-year, $42M task order from the U.S. Army to develop, field and maintain a decision support system for the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

SAIC said Thursday it will also carry out technology integration and mission engineering services for Joint Staff J3 and J5 in support of the Orion platform.

The company received the task order under the Space and Missile Defense Command's Design, Development, Demonstration and Integration contract.

The Orion is a decision-making technology for military leaders designed to visualize personnel and equipment, provide actionable data and unify authoritative information from military service branches.

"We are proud to continue and expand our work with the Army and the Joint Chiefs of Staff by integrating technologies that meet the evolving needs of our warfighters and senior leadership," said Jim Scanlon, executive vice president and general manager at SAIC’s defense solutions group.
