Leidos has secured a $962m multiple award contract from the US Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center (SPAWARSYSCEN) Atlantic to provide engineering and information warfare services for cyber missions.

The indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity, hybrid cost-plus-fixed-fee contract has a base ordering period of five years and includes two one-year extension options.

Leidos will deliver the contract work in multiple locations, including South Carolina, Maryland, Virginia, and California.

Under the contract, the company will provide cyber mission engineering and technical services in support of national security information warfare capabilities through sea, air, land, space, electromagnetic, and cyber domains.

“We will continue to expand upon our C4ISR work by leveraging this contract and other similar work for our defence customers.”

The contract work involves providing support for command, control, communications, computers, combat systems, intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance (C5ISR), identity operations, enterprise information services and space programmes.

Leidos C4ISR Solutions operation manager Eric Freeman said: “We have provided our Navy customers with over 40 years of proven C4ISR systems engineering experience that enables warfighters to execute their critical missions for the nation.

“We will continue to expand upon our C4ISR work by leveraging this contract and other similar work for our defence customers.”

The company is also providing full lifecycle systems engineering support, including integration, testing, training, and cybersecurity for the US Navy’s Distributed Common Ground System Navy (DCGS-N).

Leidos noted that the cyber engineering agreement allows the company to compete for extension of its support contract for the DCGS-N programme and vie for other important C4ISR and cyber programmes.
