MCLEAN, Va. — SAIC has been awarded a $45.2 million follow-on contract to support the tactical warfare training of the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps, the company said in a release. The single-award contract has a three-year period of performance.
SAIC will continue providing technical and tactical expertise to support tactical warfare training of the Tactical Training Group Pacific (TTGP) stationed in San Diego, the Expeditionary Warfare Training Group Pacific (EWTGP) based in Coronado, California, Tactical Training Group Detachment (TTGPDY) Yokosuka, Japan, and Carrier Strike Group 15 in San Diego.
SAIC’s support provides the Navy and Marine Corps the most up-to-date training, including instruction related to tactics, techniques and procedures as well as practical applications and wargaming support, utilizing government-furnished training systems for classroom training, Fleet Synthetic Training, and Live, Virtual, Constructive Training. This support enables TTGP and EWTGP to execute their primary mission to train carrier strike groups, expeditionary strike groups, and amphibious ready groups of the Navy’s Third and Seventh Fleets.
“SAIC is proud to continue our support of TTGP and EWTGP as they train groups for deployment,” said Jim Scanlon, SAIC executive vice president and general manager of the Defense Systems Customer Group. “We want today’s Navy and Marine Corps forces to be as mission-ready as possible and this program enables that preparation.”
SAIC was the only awardee for this contract. Three subcontractors — American Systems, Prairie Quest, and Stellar Peak — will work with SAIC on this contract.
“Our years of successful engagement on this program, coupled with key personnel, secured this win and cemented the trust between us and our customers in this contract,” Scanlon said.
