SAIC adds software unit

Science Applications International Corp. has purchased GeoViz.com, which produces commercial off-the-shelf two- and three-dimensional training tools for command and control, communications, modeling, and simulation exercises.

The software's Web browser interface allows trainees and other users to see 2-D and 3-D views of geospatial data. Users can also share mapping functions worldwide and record and play back their training sessions.

As a result of the sale, GeoViz.com’s employees will remain at their engineering facility in Campbell, Calif., but will be integrated into SAIC’s Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Information Technology Business Unit within its System and Network Solutions Group.

“It is a perfect fit within our next-generation command and control platform strategy, since this acquisition enhances SAIC’s technical and operational capabilities in the [Defense Department] command and control marketplace,” said Deborah James, SAIC senior vice president and general manager of the business unit, in a statement.

SAIC has more than 43,000 employees in more than 150 cities worldwide and annual revenue of $7.8 billion.
