MCLEAN, Va., Nov. 12, 2012

MCLEAN, Va., Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Science Applications International
Corporation (SAIC) (NYSE: SAI) today announced that it was awarded a prime
contract by the U.S. Army's Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training
and Instrumentation (PEO STRI) to integrate, test, and deliver 11 additional
integrated crew member simulators for CH-47 and UH-60 helicopters under the
Non-rated Crew Member Manned Module (NCM3) program. The follow-on single-award
task order has a 37- month period of performance and a total contract value of
approximately $41 million. Work will be performed primarily in Orlando, Fla.
The task order was awarded under the second STRI Omnibus Contract (STOC II).

PEO STRI's NCM3 program provides a collective training system to meet aviation
crew member training requirements. The NCM3 is a transportable, multi-station,
virtual simulation device designed to support individual, crew and collective
training. The NCM3 simulators integrate with the Army's Aviation Combined Arms
Tactical Trainer (AVCATT) simulators. Under the task order, SAIC will
integrate, test, deliver and maintain 11 mobile variants equipped with
helicopter crew member simulator modules to support gunnery and crew
coordination training.  Two units are already operational at Fort Campbell,
Ky. and Fort Drum, N.Y.

"We're excited by the opportunity to continue providing this proven technology
to the U.S. Army, which enables non-rated crew members to train on critical,
coordinated tasks like gunnery, sling load and hoist operations with pilots,"
said John Gully, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager.
"This task order allows us to deliver the second generation of crew-member
training capability and enables us to help PEO STRI ensure that America's
warfighters receive the best training possible."
