STRENGTH AND SURVIVABILITYWE’RE UPGRADING VEHICLE AND WEAPONS SYSTEMS TO ADVANCE FORCE CAPABILITIES AND INCREASE TROOP SAFETY, WHILE REDEFINING THE WAY PLATFORMS ARE DELIVERED.
MODERNIZING THE FORCE
SAIC IS TAKING PLATFORM MODERNIZATION TO THE NEXT LEVEL. We’re redefining the way platforms are delivered to our military, providing advanced force solutions at the best value. Our vehicle and weapon upgrades modernize systems to increase troop readiness, safety, and mission effectiveness.
UPGRADING ARMORED VEHICLES
ON SHIPS AND
SAIC’s entry into the MPF competition builds on continued momentum in combat vehicle modernization, including integrating new Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems onto Army ground vehicles, which are tested by soldiers in a field environment during Network Integration Evaluations (NIE) at Fort Bliss, Texas.
SAFEGUARDING THE MARINES
The rugged, adaptable Assault Amphibious Vehicle (AAV), or Amtrack, is what the USMC is all about. We're updating and modernizing these workhorse vehicles with an extensive Survivability Upgrade to better protect Marines from IEDs, roadside bombs, and other threats in theater.LEARN MORE
