Leidos has been awarded a significant $631m contract to support the US Army’s Development, Integration, Acquisitions, Bridging to Logistics & Operations (DIABLO) programme.  

This DIABLO contract, set to span a ten-year period until 31 March 2034, was awarded by the US Army Contracting Command – Aberdeen Proving Ground.  

The multifaceted contract allows purchase of negotiated service task orders and supply delivery orders under cost-no-fee, cost-plus-fixed-fee, firm-fixed-price, cost-plus-incentive-fee, and fixed-price-incentive terms.  

A US Department of Defense’s contract announcement clarified that specific work locations and funding would be determined with each order. 

The DIABLO acquisition is being executed under the supervision of the Project Director Sensors-Aerial Intelligence (PD SAI). 

It is a strategic approach that helps meet PD SAI’s portfolio requirements and allows it to remain more agile and adaptable to better address the Army’s intelligence modernisation goals.

As part of the DIABLO contract, Leidos will be responsible for the development, acquisition, fielding as well as delivery of lifecycle support for the aerial intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (AISR) integrated systems and sensors across multiple intelligence capabilities. 

The company’s selection for the DIABLO programme is said to have been influenced by its demonstrated capability to provide platform-agnostic sensor and technology solutions, independent technology and supplier evaluations, and experience in supporting other programmes.  

Leidos Airborne Systems senior vice president Tim Freeman said: “We are excited about the opportunity to support the Army’s DIABLO programme. 

“Our full lifecycle work on the sensors and airborne intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance is a legacy we are proud of, and we look forward to expand upon that in support of the Army’s future capabilities work.” 

In April 2024, Leidos received a follow-on prime task order, potentially valued up to $267m, to provide hardware sustainment, modernisation, refresher training, and logistics support for the US Army.
