DHS Awards Leidos $918M Contract to Support Classified Networks

The Department of Homeland Security has awarded Leidos a potential seven-year, $918 million contract to deliver program management, operations and maintenance, training and cloud integration services.

Leidos is expected to enhance the Homeland Secure Data Network and Classified-Local Area Network under the Homeland Enterprise Information Technology Secure Services and Support follow-on.

HSDN is a wide-area network for exchanging classified information between DHS, the intelligence community, law enforcement and federal agencies. It brings together various secret-level networks throughout the department.

Leidos Intelligence Group President Roy Stevens, a 4×24 member and 2023 Wash100 awardee, explained that supporting secure intelligence sharing and collaboration between agencies will advance DHS’ national security mission. He noted that the company will focus on providing artificial intelligence, quantum-safe cryptography and automation capabilities.

According to a press release, Leidos will deliver an AI for IT operations platform to enable proactive threat responses. The AIOps capability will employ network penetration testing approaches and tools to reduce intrusion risks, Leidos said.
