MCLEAN, Va., 9 March 2013. Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC; NYSE:SAI) won a prime contract from the U.S. Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC) to provide command-and-control (C2) applications information services development to the Air Combat Command (ACC). 

"We look forward to providing applications and information services to the Air Force warfighter, enabling them to produce decision-quality information at the right place and time," said Dan Harris, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager.
