The US Army has awarded Leidos with a $200m hybrid contract to support geospatial requirements, standards, and systems across the service.
The cost-plus-fixed-fee and firm-fixed-price follow-on contract has a potential period of performance of five years. The contract award follows after the US Department of Defense received five bids.
Under the deal, Leidos will be responsible for continuing to deliver technologies and expertise to support the army’s on-going geospatial research, integration, development, and operational requirements at the US Army Geospatial Center (AGC) at Fort Belvoir.
In addition, the company will develop geospatial enterprise-enabled systems for the US Army and other Department of Defense (DoD) and non-DoD entities.
Leidos Advanced Solutions Group president Mike Chagnon said: “We are proud of the 25 years of support we’ve provided to the army’s geospatial work, helping deliver innovative intelligence capabilities into the hands of the army warfighter.
“Across the geospatial community, Leidos continues to innovate on behalf of our customers, delivering technologies and expertise focused on their unique missions.”
Work on the multi-award project will be carried out in Alexandria, Virginia, US, with an estimated completion date of 11 February 2023.
In September 2016, the company was awarded a prime contract from the General Services Administration (GSA) to support the Army Geospatial Center’s (AGC) High-Resolution 3D (HR3D) Geospatial Information programme.
With a total of 32,000 employees, the company supports major missions in the defence, intelligence, homeland security, civil, and health industries.
