STRENGTH AND SURVIVABILITYWE’RE BUILDING AND UPGRADING COMBAT AND TACTICAL VEHICLES TO 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 the best value to our customers. We develop and deliver combat and tactical vehicles using the best commercial technology and solutions available that can support our customer’s timelines and readiness needs.
UPGRADING ARMORED VEHICLES
ASSAULT AMPHIBIOUS VEHICLE SURVIVABILITY UPGRADE (AAV SU)

PROTECTING THE TROOPS
Our work today continues momentum in combat vehicle modernization. We began with integrating command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems into Army ground vehicles in 2005 and have expanded our platform integration to building prototypes for the Army and the Marine Corps today.
A HISTORY OF VEHICLE INNOVATION
From 2005 to 2007, we integrated various C4ISR and mission kits into Mine-Resistant, Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles to improve survivability, lethality, and communications.
In 2009, we began upgrading the Assault Amphibious Vehicle (AAV) C7 with comprehensive command and control improvements.
In 2014, we modernized armor protection and improved survivability of legacy AAVs. We upgraded its armor, installed blast-mitigating seats, a new transmission, and a new engine to create the AAV SU.
In 2015, we began building ACVs based on an existing platform. To date, we have delivered 16 ACV prototypes to the Marine Corps.
In 2018, we submitted our Mobile Protected Firepower (MPF) prototype to the Army with partners ST Kinetics and CMI Defence.
MOVING FORWARD » FRONT-LINE TECHNOLOGY WE HARNESS ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS ACROSS SAIC TO SUCCESSFULLY UPGRADE AND INTEGRATE PLATFORMS QUICKLY AND COST EFFECTIVELY.
A new 340,000-square-foot facility expands our existing operations in Charleston, South Carolina, to support production operations of our platforms and vehicles.
Systems engineering drives our platform integration solutions with combinatorial trade studies selecting best-of-breed technologies fitting customers’ objectives. Our model-based approach streamlines development, eliminates red tape, and quickly adapts to ever-changing requirements.
From supply chain optimization to design for efficient maintenance and sustainment in the field and tackling obsolescence issues, our talented team helps deliver end-to-end integrated product support for the customer.
