(Falls Church, 17.11.2011) The U.S. Missile Defense Agency (MDA) awarded CSC a task order to provide systems engineering support for all MDA-funded ballistic missile defense systems. The task order, which has a one-year base period and a one-year option, has an estimated total two-year value of $80 million and was awarded in the second quarter of CSC fiscal year 2012. It was issued under the MiDAESS Group 3 Engineering Support contract, which CSC won in 2010.
Under the terms of the task order, CSC will provide matrixed systems engineering support to 19 different program and project offices within MDA. CSC will enhance the delivery and deployment of new systems through standardized processes and performance monitoring. Work on this task order will be performed in Huntsville, Ala.; Colorado Springs, Colo.; Dahlgren, Va.; and the National Capital Region.
“As the ballistic missile threat continues to grow in size and complexity, CSC will ensure the Missile Defense Agency has the ability to proactively plan and integrate the next generation of defense technologies,” said James W. Sheaffer, president of CSC’s North American Public Sector. “CSC’s ability to help drive down costs through consolidation and standardization will provide the agency with savings and improvements to continue supporting its missions at greater efficiencies in the future.”
The MDA is a research, development and acquisition agency within the U.S. Department of Defense. Its mission is to develop, test and field ballistic missile defense systems to defend the United States against all ranges of enemy ballistic missiles in all phases of flight.
