Science Applications wins service contract in Jordan

Science Applications (SA), a provider of engineering systems integration and technical services, has been awarded two contracts to support the Kingdom of Jordan with DNA consultancy services to the Jordan Public Security Directorate (PSD) new forensic lab and provide command, control, communications, computers and intelligence (C4I) support to the Jordan Armed Forces (JAF) Joint Special Operations Command (SOCOM).

Under the first contract, which has a five-year period of performance and is valued at more than $3m (£2m), SA will provide DNA consultancy services to the Jordan PSD in support of a forensic laboratory in Amman, Jordan.

The second contract, which was awarded by the JAF, has a two-year period of performance and is valued at more than $7m, SA will design and equip a new command-and-control (C2) centre, and will integrate C4I system upgrades for JAF SOCOM, also in Amman.

These upgrades will help enhance SOCOM’s ability to control and communicate with military assets during field operations, while the C2 centre will be a central location for JAF command officers to meet and evaluate real-time events.
