Science Applications International Corp. is building a new platform integration and engineering center in Berkeley County, SC, the company announced today.

Slated to be open later this year, the new "Platform Innovation Center" will expand SAIC's operations in the Charleston region and will add approximately 200 jobs over the next five years, according to a company statement.

"SAIC has a long legacy of doing business in South Carolina and this investment underscores our long-term commitment to the state," SAIC CEO Tony Moraco said. "We are excited about the new opportunities this state-of-the-art facility will provide and to better enable us to deliver mission critical solutions to our customers."

The new facility is directly tied to the expansion of the company's work on systems engineering, ground tactical vehicles, logistics, and full life-cycle services and solutions. "It is a critical component of SAIC's long-term strategy," the company said.
