Oklahoma City Air Logistics Center Awards $22 Million Contract To SAIC

Company To Provide Instrument Landing System Modernization Services In Support Of The U.S. Air Force

A prime contract to provide Instrument Landing System (ILS) modernization services in support of the U.S. Air Force (USAF) from the Oklahoma City Air Logistics Center (OC-ALC) has been awarded to Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC). The contract has a one year base period of performance, four one-year options, and a total contract value of more than $22 million, if all options are exercised. Work will be performed in San Diego, CA, Overland Park, KS, and at USAF bases worldwide, as required.

The OC-ALC provides depot maintenance, management expertise, installation services and information support for weapon systems, commands, USAF bases and allied nations. Under the contract, SAIC will provide ILS modernization services, including a modification that replaces obsolete ILS components with modern commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) equipment, integrates them into existing infrastructure, and enables remote maintenance and monitoring. SAIC will also help develop a comprehensive data package, including configuration management, maintenance, interfaces, and life cycle logistics support.

"We look forward to continuing our support of the USAF as we work to replace legacy ILS systems with reliable and proven components that are updated, more efficient and cost effective," said Glenn SanGiacomo, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager.
