Science Applications International Corp (SAIC) has been awarded a $574 million contract with the United States Space Force (USSF) to support its Ground Based Radar Maintenance and Sustainment Services (GMASS). 

Under the contract, SAIC will provide on-going sustainment and modification of the GMASS contract-covered systems, including Upgraded Early Warning Radars (UEWR) and the Perimeter Acquisition Radar Attack Characterization System (PARCS) radars and all associated systems and equipment.

In addition to sustaining operational capabilities, the contract will also utilize an integrated roadmap to highlight incremental opportunities and areas for innovation to promote backlog items and improve operational efficiencies. Through this work, SAIC will help further modernize critical missile warning and space domain awareness radars for key Space Force missions.

Under SAIC’s leading system integration services and expertise, GMASS provides an opportunity to augment Space Domain Awareness by exploiting the capabilities inherent in ground-based radars to better meet the needs of warfighters to detect, track and defeat missile threats.

Also, SAIC has named L3Harris as an exclusive team member on the contract, participating in an ongoing strategic partnership across the GMASS program.

According to SAIC, the contract aligns with its strategy to focus on Growth and Technology Accelerants in the area of Space. SAIC continues to provide industry leading space resiliency efforts with customers including NASA and the U.S. Air Force.

“SAIC’s continued work with the Space Force is a true testament to the valuable support we bring to the agency on its modernization journey,” said Michael LaRouche, President, National Security and Space at SAIC. “Our integrated roadmap and work alongside our partners will advance innovation and encourage customer mission success. We look forward to showcasing our comprehensive depth of expertise and capabilities and further aligning to the GMASS key objectives and needs.”
