SAIC To Support Anti-Bomb Training

12/22/08

The Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center in Charleston, SC, has awarded a $17 million task order to SAIC, the San Diego defense contractor, to support a training program for countering IEDs, or improvised explosive devices. The program trains Marine Corps engineers to defuse roadside bombs and other booby-traps, and in using electronic warfare countermeasures to jam signals intended to trigger IEDs.
