DISA Awards Potential $11.5B Mission Services Modernization Contract to Leidos

The Defense Information Systems Agency has awarded Leidos a potential $11.5 billion single-award contract for digital modernization services.

Under the terms of the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity Defense Enclave Services contract, Leidos will unify Department of Defense agencies and field activities under a common network architecture.

The system will support mission services focused on user experience, security and network reliability, Leidos said Monday.

Leidos Chairman and CEO Roger Krone, a member of the Potomac Officers Club and a nine-time Wash100 winner, said that Leidos will modernize the defense agencies’ and field activities’ ability to support warfighters.

Leidos President Gerry Fasano, a POC member and a three-time Wash100 awardee, added that the Pentagon’s Defense Enclave Services program will benefit from the company’s unique expertise and technology solutions.

“We look forward to delivering an improved user experience and enhanced mission capabilities,” Fasano added.

DISA is an agency that specializes in information-sharing capabilities, command and control and global enterprise infrastructure solutions, according to its website.

Headquartered in Reston, Virginia, Leidos is a technology company that offers capabilities in areas such as cyber operations, digital modernization, mission software systems, artificial intelligence and rapid prototyping.

The Air Force Research Laboratory also recently awarded Leidos a contract. The $26 million deal calls for the development of a next-generation electronic weapon system for drone threats. AFRL said that the weapon system, called Mjolnir, will use advanced high-power microwave technology to defeat unmanned aircraft.
