SAIC Team Wins Army Live Training Transformation Program

SAN DIEGO, CA, April 10, 2003 -- Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) today announced that together with teammate Boeing, it has been selected as one of the two competitors to design the U.S. Army's One Tactical Engagement Simulation System (OneTESS) by the Program Executive Officer, Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI) located in Orlando, Fla.

The fixed price level of effort will be performed over a period of 13 months. The estimated value of the contract is $2 million. Under the terms of the contract, SAIC will be the prime contractor in the multi-phased Concept and Technology Demonstration and Systems Development and Demonstration Program. OneTESS will provide the U.S. Army Active and Reserve components with an embedded live training capability that meets the training requirements for the Army's future Objective Force.

"We are pleased that the project manager for training devices, the product director for live training systems and the OneTESS Program Office have expressed their confidence in the SAIC-Boeing team," said Paul Chang, SAIC senior vice president and manager of SAIC's Wireless Systems Group. "We feel that our team's ability to leverage ongoing work in key Objective Force Programs, such as the Future Combat Systems and Joint Tactical Radio System can help us during the development and design phase."

OneTESS will provide a standardized family of engagement simulations to meet the training and test requirements of a brigade taskforce-sized element at the Army Combat Training Centers, home station training, and when deployed. For the legacy forces, interim forces (Stryker), and the Objective Force, such as Future Combat Systems, OneTESS will be designed to meet evolving threats and to support Army transformation.

During Phase 1 of the OneTESS Program, the SAIC-Boeing team will design an architecture and identify enabling technologies for the OneTESS family of systems.

Members of the SAIC-led team include Boeing Phantom Works, headquartered in Seattle, Wash.; COLSA, based in Huntsville, Ala.; NAVSYS, headquartered in Colorado Springs, Colo.; and Tech Solutions Inc., headquartered in Orlando, Fla.
