SAIC and Rogue Space Systems Team Up for In-Space Services

Science Applications International Corporation SAIC recently announced that it has inked a strategic partnership with the Laconia, NH-based defense and space manufacturing start-up, Rogue Space Systems Corporation, to deliver solutions that provide In-Orbit Service Assembly and Manufacturing (ISAM), asset inspection and Space Situational Awareness (SSA) services.

Teaming up with Rogue Space Systems, SAIC will develop small satellites that will rapidly provide in-space services. The Reston-based information technology services provider will integrate the start-up’s Orbots, which are orbital space robots, to impart ISAM and SSA services to public and commercial organizations. Additionally, it will identify business development opportunities for Rogue Space Systems.

With the rapidly growing space technologies and human endeavors in geostationary and non-geostationary orbit satellites, there has been an increase in demand for satellite services and space-based activities. The latest contract will aid the start-up to accelerate its presence in the ISAM market.

Rogue Space Systems, the first-generation manufacturer of orbital robots, was formed in 2020. It designs satellite vehicles, robots and subsystems to offer in-space services to satellite operators, manufacturers and insurers.

 

Science Applications International Corporation Price and Consensus

Science Applications International Corporation price-consensus-chart | Science Applications International Corporation Quote

Science Applications is currently focusing on the federal government marketplace and capturing more market share. It intends to drive operational excellence by intensively focusing on its organic and inorganic growth strategy, and strengthening existing customer relationships while building newer ones. Increased federal spending is anticipated to accelerate the pace of contract awards, which, in turn, will be beneficial for SAIC’s top-line growth.

During second-quarter fiscal 2023, SAIC reported revenues of $1.83 billion, mainly driven by contributions from the newly acquired Halfaker business and the ramp-up of new and existing contracts.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for SAIC’s third-quarter fiscal 2023 revenues is pegged at $1.86 billion compared with the year-ago quarter’s $1.90 billion.
