MCLEAN, Va., Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Science Applications International
Corporation (SAIC) (NYSE: SAI) announced today it was awarded a prime contract
by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) for the
Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) Continuous Trail Unmanned Vessel (ACTUV) program
phases two through four to design, build and test a new prototype unmanned
autonomous surface vessel. The single-award, cost-plus fixed-fee (CPFF)
contract has a three-year period of performance for phases two and three with
a total contract value of approximately $58 million, and a $1 million
eighteen-month option for phase four. Work will be performed primarily in
Virginia, Florida, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Mississippi, California,
Washington, Rhode Island, and Oregon.

The DARPA ACTUV program aims to develop an unmanned autonomous surface vessel
with the ability to track a quiet diesel-electric submarine overtly for months
over thousands of kilometers, with minimal human input. SAIC provided
conceptual design services in phase one of the program, creating an innovative
wave piercing trimaran solution.

Under the contract, SAIC will provide a final design and production plan for
the ACTUV prototype in phase two, construction of the prototype is scheduled
to be completed in phase three, and government testing in phase four.
Leveraging the company's phase one concept design as the point of departure,
SAIC will work with DARPA to design, build, and demonstrate an experimental
vessel capable of independently deploying under sparse remote supervisory
control, to achieve a game-changing ASW operational capability, with the
ultimate objective to facilitate rapid transition of that capability to the
Navy in response to critical operational demand. Key teammates are Oregon
Iron Works and Christensen Shipyards for ship design, construction and
propulsion; the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Jet Propulsion
Lab; and Carnegie Mellon University for autonomy.

"Drawing on SAIC's technical depth in marine hydrodynamics, ship design,
sensors, and advanced autonomy, we're confident that the SAIC team will meet
or exceed DARPA's requirements for ACTUV, a revolutionary autonomous maritime
vessel," said Pete Mikhalevsky, SAIC senior vice president and operations
manager. "This exemplifies the kind of technical innovation that is the
hallmark of SAIC solving our customers' toughest problems."

"We are very pleased that DARPA has selected SAIC to realize its vision for
this revolutionary unmanned autonomous vessel that has the potential to be a
game-changer in ASW and maritime operations," said John Fratamico, SAIC senior
vice president and business unit general manager.
