Leidos to provide professional and technical support to Joint Staff J6 JDAT


Global science and technology company Leidos has secured a prime contract from the US Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP) Fleet Logistics Center to deliver professional and technical support to the Joint Staff J6 (JS J6) joint deployable analysis team (JDAT).

The new cost-plus fixed-fee task order is set to have a total value of approximately $18m if all options are exercised, and features a one-year base period of performance with two additional one-year options.

Work on the project will be carried out at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida, 

The JDAT assesses both current and future warfighter systems and procedures in field conditions in order to address integration and interoperability issues and aid the enhancement of combat effectiveness, as well as protect warfighters and reduce collateral damage.

"We look forward to continuing our support of NAVSUP by anticipating their needs and helping them achieve their mission."

Leidos Defence and Intelligence president Tim Reardon said: “We look forward to continuing our support of NAVSUP by anticipating their needs and helping them achieve their mission to provide supplies, services and quality-of-life support to the navy and Joint warfighter.”

Leidos will offer professional and technical support to the JDAT under the arrangement, including capability assessments, improvement activities, project management, administration and documentation.

The company will also deliver infrastructure and operations support, along with analytical, technical and functional services.

The assessment results will help improve force integration and system-to-system interoperability.

Leidos has also received another contract worth approximately $12m from the US Naval Surface Warfare Center Carderock Division (NSWCCD) to deliver operational support to NSWCCD acoustic trials and research activities for the US Navy's Southeast Alaska Acoustic Measurement Facility (SEAFAC).
