SAIC to Support DoD Training Requirements Under Navy Contract; Tom Watson Comments

SAIC logoScience Application International Corp. will work to support the design, development, implementation and evaluation of training materials for the U.S. Navy as part of a potential $343 million contract awarded earlier in May.

SAIC said Tuesday it will seek to deliver modular, scalable and tailored learning in support of Defense Department training requirements and Navy distance learning objectives.

“SAIC’s goal on this contract is to help the Navy with the reengineering and development of training products that use relevant technology and software to provide immersive and distributed training,” said Tom Watson, SAIC senior vice president and general manager of its Navy and U.S. Marine Corps customer group.

He added that the company plans to offer game-based, cloud-based, interactive and multimedia resources for instruction.

As covered in our GovConWire publication, SAIC is among five firms selected for the contract, which supports the Naval Education Training Command’s Naval Training Products and Services program.
