Kratos Defense & Security Solutions Inc. and Computer Science Corp., both of San Diego, were among nine contractors to receive one-year contract modifications to support SPAWAR, the U.S. Navy’s information technology command.

Several other companies were tapped to do similar work in San Diego. They include Arizona-based Assured Space Access Technologies Inc., Virginia-based General Dynamics Information Technology, Virginia-based Serco Inc. and Virginia-based Stanley Associates Inc. Details of the three other awards were not immediately available.

All contractors will provide C4I support. The abbreviation stands for command, control, communications, computers and intelligence.

SPAWAR, the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command, has yet to issue task orders related to the contracts, announced on Nov. 24.

Kratos’ deal could be worth as much as $8.2 million while Computer Science’s deal could be worth as much as $7.2 million. Assured’s deal could be worth up to $8.0 million, General Dynamics’ (NYSE: GD) could be worth up to $7.5 million, Serco’s could be worth up to $7.2 million and Stanley Associates’ could be worth up to $6.9 million.

Specifically, the companies will offer C4I support in the areas of test and evaluation, engineering, independent verification and validation engineering, software quality assurance, configuration management and website maintenance.

All contracts come with one base year and one option year. Contract values vary. If the government chooses to exercise an option with a particular contractor, it could push the cumulative value of the deal into the range of $26 million-$32 million.
