“With all sectors rapidly implementing technology to meet and conduct business virtually, our new Innovation Factory Hub will enable our Huntsville-area customers to accelerate solutions to meet their mission requirements,” he said.
SAIC’s Innovation Factory is a nationwide network of physical and virtual environments using a highly automated, cloud-hosted toolset; agile practices; and DevSecOps production chains to rapidly build, test and deploy first iterations of solutions quickly and then enhance them quickly through close customer collaboration.
The Innovation Factory Hub is focused on driving defense modernization efforts while addressing the technical challenges associated with DOD multi-domain operations and force modernization initiatives, said SAIC Chief Technology Officer Charles Onstott.
“Our researchers and engineers will leverage digital engineering and agile software development to enable the DOD to rapidly explore and implement innovative technologies, such as big data analytics, artificial intelligence, augmented and virtual reality, and modeling and simulation, focused on improving mission outcomes,” he said.
