MCLEAN, Va., Nov. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Science Applications International
Corporation (SAIC) [NYSE: SAI] today announced it has been awarded a contract
to provide the Mine Warfare and Environmental Decision Aids Library (MEDAL)
tactical decision aid in support of the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force
(JMSDF) MCH-101 helicopter Airborne Mine Countermeasures (AMCM). In addition
to providing the MEDAL software system, SAIC will be assisting with
engineering and training services as MEDAL is integrated within the broader
MCH-101 ground support system, being developed by NEC Corporation, the prime
contractor in Japan.

The JMSDF is expanding the capabilities of its MCH-101 aircraft to include
AMCM capabilities. MEDAL will be used in the mission planning, evaluation,
and command and control of AMCM missions. The MCH-101 helicopter AMCM systems
will include the AN/AQS-24A mine hunting side scan sonar, the AN/AES-1
airborne laser mine detection system, and the MK-104 acoustic minesweeping
system. In addition to supporting planning and evaluation of the MCH-101 AMCM
systems, the JMSDF MEDAL system will provide capability for an increased level
of interoperability with the U.S. Navy. The JMSDF MEDAL is fully compatible
with the U.S. Navy MEDAL system. MEDAL has served as the U.S. Navy's mine
warfare tactical decision aid system since the mid-1990s.

"This sale of MEDAL helps make the JMSDF and the U.S. Navy more
interoperable," said Thomas Watson, SAIC senior vice president and business
unit general manager. "Japan is a crucial ally and its mine warfare forces
are known and respected for their capabilities world-wide. We look forward to
a long relationship with the JMSDF, and also to exploring the potential to
further enhance interoperability and provide solutions to the JMSDF and other
allied nations."
