The U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory selected Science Applications
International Corp. (NYSE: SAIC) to research laser bioeffects, advance
vision science, conduct modeling and simulation, and perform safety
engineering, awarding the company a $58 million Optical Radiation
Bioeffects and Safety contract. The research program will enhance airman
combat survivability by enabling U.S. forces to counter optical hazards
and threats.

“We need to keep airmen safe and able to perform their missions
effectively on a directed energy battlefield,” said Michael LaRouche,
executive vice president and general manager of SAIC’s National Security
Customer Group. “Having delivered in-house research for the 711 Human
Performance Wing – Optical Radiation Bioeffects Branch for the past 26
years, we’re well positioned to deliver next generation solutions in
optical warfare.”

Under the 75-month, cost-plus, fixed-fee contract, SAIC’s team will
cover wide-ranging research to define thresholds for biological injury
and correlate optical exposure with performance. SAIC will also leverage
machine learning capabilities from its Solutions and Technology Group as
they seek to enhance laser injury assessments.
