MCLEAN, Va., June 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) (NYSE: SAI) today announced it has been awarded a follow-on contract by the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center (SPAWARSYSCEN) Atlantic to provide program management and technical services to SPAWARSYSCEN Atlantic's Tactical Command and Control Division, Rapid Capability Insertion (RCI) operation.

Under the contract, SAIC will provide program support in areas including program management, engineering, logistics, integration, and test and evaluation.
