SAIC Awarded Contract for 23 Military Mobile VACIS(R) Inspection Systems

SAN DIEGO and MCLEAN, Va., Dec. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Science Applications International Corporation (NYSE: SAI) announced today the receipt of an order from the U.S. Army through the Army Research Lab for 23 ruggedized mobile VACIS(R) inspection systems.

Developed from the same technology behind SAIC's successful commercial VACIS(R) inspection systems, of which more than 300 have been installed to date, the Military Mobile VACIS(R) Inspection System mounts the core, commercial VACIS inspection module, the VACIS(R) Imaging Kit, on military High-Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWV). The result is a ruggedized, all-terrain, self-relocatable non-intrusive inspection system that provides the user with a capability to perform inspections in remote locations not normally accessible by conventional inspection systems.

"We are very pleased to be selected for delivery of these systems, which will make an immediate impact in helping to protect our troops overseas, securing vital assets and aiding the fight against terrorism," said Alex Preston, SAIC senior vice president and general manager of the Security and Transportation Business Unit.

The units awarded on this contract will include enhanced protection for operators through up-armoring of the vehicle platform and the use of remote operation capability through a dedicated data link. The Military Mobile VACIS(R) provides operational flexibility through supporting bi-directional moving scan and stationary scan modes.
