Systems Planning and Analysis (SPA) has been awarded a subcontract on Science Applications International Corporation’s (SAIC) five-year, $63.5 million prime contract to support the U.S. Navy’s Advanced Hypersonic Technologies, SPA reported on Monday.
“Conventional Prompt Strike is one of the leading Advanced Hypersonics Programs and SPA is proud to be working with the Department of Defense (DoD) and Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Crane on such an important and ground breaking endeavor,” said Dr. William Vantine, SPA president and CEO.
Under the subcontract, SPA will support Advanced Hypersonic Technology across a variety of focus areas, including program management support, budget support, system safety, risk management, scheduling, system and subsystem test and evaluation. The company will also support system integration of the weapon system onto operational platforms.
When fully fielded, Advanced Hypersonic Technology will provide warfighters with advanced systems that support critical mission objectives. “We thank the department for allowing us to support them and we look forward to continuing this successful partnership with them and our prime contractor, SAIC,” Dr. Vantine added.
