MCLEAN, Va., Dec. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Science Applications International
Corporation (SAIC) (NYSE: SAI) announced today it was awarded a prime contract
by the U.S. Army Natick Soldier Research and Development Engineering Center
(NSRDEC) to provide concept design, development, and fabrication services in
support of the Self-Sustaining Living Module (SLiM) project. The single-award
cost-plus fixed-fee contract has a six-month base period of performance, one
one-year option, and a total contract value of approximately $1 million, if
all options are exercised.

SLiM is a research study that will explore the application and synergistic
integration of emerging habitation technologies into a conceptual technology
design and demonstration. Under the contract, SAIC will provide concept
design, development and fabrication services in support of the SAIC SLiM
concept, which is a rigid-walled modular shelter system that includes solar
energy collection and microgrid power management. SLiM will provide shelter
and basic living amenities for small contingency bases. Under the six-month
Phase I effort of the contract, SAIC will provide concept design drawings to
the point demonstration units can be fabricated for a scale model of SLiM, and
drawings for Phase II. Under the 12-month Phase II of the contract, SAIC will
fabricate and assemble the units and provide a functional prototype of SLiM,
including two cubes to demonstrate integrated energy and water management
subsystems.

"We look forward in leveraging our engineering, technology and mission
knowledge to assist the U.S. Army in developing this SLiM technology. This
solution will maximize the quality of life for our troops and energy
efficiency at stations, and will minimize logistics' footprint with a
futuristic concept that can be scaled for next generation military contingency
bases," said JT Grumski, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general
manager.
