Leidos Secures $267M Army C5ISR Modernization, Training Support Follow-On Contract

The Army Contracting Command at Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland has awarded Leidos a potential $267 million follow-on prime contract to provide the U.S. Army with hardware sustainment, modernization, refresher training and logistics services.

The work will support Communications Electronics Command, the Integrated Logistics Support Center, the Field Support Directorate and the Force Modernization Division, Leidos said Monday.

Under the contract, the company will deploy experts in command, control, communication, computers, cyber, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance to assess Army hardware capabilities against performance parameters, build out hardware configurations and implement upgrades. 

According to Leidos, the team of experts has deployed nearly 9,000 C5ISR systems and provided nearly 13,000 training courses to more than 167,000 soldiers since February 2011.

Jason McCarthy, Leidos senior vice president for engineering, integration and operations, said that the capabilities and training the company will provide are essential to modernizing tactical network environments for warfighters.

The follow-on contract has a base period of 11 months and four one-year option periods.
