Leidos has secured a follow-on task order to provide mission support services to the US Army’s Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center (CERDEC) Prototyping Integration and Testing Division (PI&TD).
The $230m single task order has been awarded by General Services Administration (GSA) and involves a one-year base performance period with four one-year options.
The US Army’s CERDEC unit develops and integrates the latest technology solutions that provide information and help strengthen soldiers, in addition to protecting them from surprise attacks.
Under the deal, Leidos will be responsible for supporting CERDEC’s prototyping operations by providing equipment, supplies, facilities, transportation, tools, and materials as well as other items and services.
This will be used to carry out command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems integration.
The company will allow PI&TD to integrate C4ISR systems into military and aerospace equipment and weapons systems, in addition to supporting evaluation exercises.
Leidos Advanced Solutions group president Mike Chagnon said: “Leidos is pleased to be supporting our customer with prototyping efforts in new technologies across the Department of Defense’s C4ISR community.
“This work is critical in an environment in which the army is seeking to stay in front of emerging needs and opportunities within the multi-dimensional battlespace.”
Work on the project will be mainly carried out in the US in Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, with additional support to be provided at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, and Tobyhanna Army Depot, Pennsylvania.
In order to address PI&TD requirements, Leidos and its teammates have developed a custom, web-based material tracking and procurement system called InView.
