SAIC to provide Blue Devil operations, maintenance support services to AFRL

Science Applications International Corporation has been awarded a prime contract by the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory to provide Blue Devil Block 1 (Blue Devil) Outside the Continental United States operations and maintenance support services to the AFRL Sensors Directorate.

The single-award cost-plus fixed-fee contract has a one-year period of performance and a total contract value of approximately $74 million.

The AFRL Blue Devil is a follow-on program to the Angel Fire electro-optical sensor operational program. After a successful evaluation of the military utility of wide area surveillance technologies, the Blue Devil program is transitioning from a test and evaluation program to an O&M mission support program. Under the contract, SAIC will provide O&M services to provide operational mission support of deployed warfighters with an advanced multi-intelligence Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance sensor system. Work will include airfield and flight operations, mission payload O&M, and the processing, exploitation and dissemination of intelligence products.

“We look forward to continuing to provide the AFRL with Blue Devil operations and maintenance services in support of warfighter missions worldwide,” said John Fratamico, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager.
