The United States Air Force (USAF) has awarded SAIC a $319 million contract to support the Air Operations Center (AOC) Falconer program with a reliable, secure and modernized mission system to plan and conduct air operations .
Under the Falconer AOC Weapons System Support contract, SAIC will work with Kessel Run, a software factory under the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC) Digital Directorate. Kessel Run and SAIC will together provide a reliable, secure and modernized mission system to AOCs worldwide for planning and executing air operations.
“The Falconer program is a strategic victory for SAIC that combines our command and control and leadership capabilities in cloud migration and digital modernization,” said Michael LaRouche, president of the National Security Sector and SAIC space, in a Press release. “We know our nation must transform command and control systems to maintain our edge…The Falconer program is another in a string of victories demonstrating the DoD’s confidence in our capabilities.”
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 responsible for transforming the current system into a modernized, sustainable and high-performing system, using comprehensive engineering and technical innovation techniques. It will include a cloud assessment, as well as planning and migration services.
