CRANE, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) — The U.S. Navy has awarded a $133 million contract to Virginia-based Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAIC). The contract calls for the company to provide mission engineering and integration services at the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division, where it employs some 550 workers.

SAIC is tasked with delivering engineering, technical support, analysis and modeling, studies, inventory and logistics, and quality assurance services in support of tactical intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance systems at the Maneuver, Engagement and Surveillance Systems Division at NSWC.

The one-year contract comes with four one-year options. SAIC says the contract covers a variety of technological areas, including tactical communications, mobility platforms, and software development.

The contract comes less than a week after the U.S. Department of Defense awarded SAIC an $85 million contract boost for the production of torpedo equipment and support. More than half of the work on the contract will be performed in Indiana.
