The US Air Force has awarded Leidos a contract worth USD82 million to support the service’s counter-small unmanned aerial system (C-sUAS) efforts. The single-award, indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract includes a one-year period, as well as four one-year options. Work will be performed at various CONUS locations, says the Leidos press release.
Through this contract, Leidos will support the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center and enhance the air base defender’s capability to detect, identify, track and defeat small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS). This will take place through a wide range of system and software maintenance, development, and deployment tasks. Leidos’ innovation and agile technologies will play a critical role in enhancing base security capabilities, while enabling a fully connected defense solution to combat anticipated threats to air bases worldwide.
“The complex and rapid proliferation of small, unmanned aircraft systems by adversaries presents new risks and challenges for our armed forces,” said Will Johnson, Leidos Senior Vice President, Logistics and Mission Support.
