Aug 04, 2006, (SAN DIEGO and MCLEAN, VA) - Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) announced today that it has completed the acquisition of Cornerstone Industry, Inc. (Cornerstone), a firm that provides joint doctrine development – the fundamental principles that guide the employment of U.S. military forces in coordinated action toward a common objective. Cornerstone also offers e-learning, Web services and computer gaming related to joint doctrine development to Department of Defense and commercial clients. The acquisition of Cornerstone strengthens SAIC’s position as a leader in the joint transformation market.

Headquartered in Alexandria, Va., Cornerstone develops, writes, publishes, assesses, and supports the entire joint doctrine process, including training and education. The company is one of the leading providers of joint doctrine support for the joint staff with significant presence at the U.S. Joint Forces Command Joint Warfighting Center.

“Joint doctrine provides the fundamental principles that guide the employment of U.S. military forces in coordinated action toward a common objective,” said Don York, president and chief executive officer of Cornerstone Industry. “Cornerstone Industry is recognized as an industry expert in this area and we look forward to bringing our capabilities to SAIC.”

Supporting customers in Washington, D.C., and both Hampton and Suffolk, Va., the company’s 59 employees will transition into SAIC’s Strategies, Simulation, and Training Business Unit. Terms of the acquisition agreement were not disclosed.

“We are pleased with the addition of the Cornerstone team to our organization,” said Beverly Seay, SAIC senior vice president and general manager of the Strategies, Simulation and Training Business Unit. “As a market leader in joint doctrine, they bring deep insight and experience that can enable us to better serve the needs of both our joint and Service clients.”
