The U.S. Air Force (USAF) has awarded SAIC a $319 million contract to support Air Operations Center’s (AOC) Falconer program with a reliable, secure, and modernized mission system to plan and conduct air operations.
Under the Falconer AOC Weapon System Sustainment contract, SAIC will work with Kessel Run, a software factory operation under the Digital Directorate of Air Force Lifecycle Management Center (AFLCMC). Kessel Run and SAIC together will provide a reliable, secure, and modernized mission system to AOCs across the world for planning and performing air operations.
“The Falconer program is a strategic win for SAIC that combines our capabilities in command and control and leadership in cloud migration and digital modernization,” said Michael LaRouche, president of SAIC’sNational Security and Space Sector, in a press release. “We know our nation must transform command and control systems to retain our advantage … The Falconer program is another in a series of wins demonstrating the confidence the DoD has in our abilities.”
In addition, the AFLCMC Kessel Run also selected SAIC as the systems integrator to maximize the operational capability of the existing Falconer system.
SAIC is tasked with transforming the current system into a modernized, sustainable, and highly capable system, using comprehensive engineering and technical innovation techniques. It will include cloud assessment, as well as planning and migration services.
