Leidos has won two contracts to carry out target vulnerability evaluation and laser interaction trials for the U.S. Air Force.
The Defense Department said Thursday the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contracts, awarded on May 29, calls for the company to perform work at Kirtland Air Force Base in New Mexico.
Under the potential five-year, $8 million IDIQ for vulnerability assessment, the Reston, Virginia-based firm will need to come up with a comprehensive vulnerability evaluation using target signature optical measurements, exploitation intelligence, shotline dependency and failure mode and fault tree analysis.
The Air Force Research Laboratory expects Leidos to complete work through May 31, 2020 and is obligating $357,000 from fiscal 2015 research, evaluation and development funds at the time of award.
AFRL received nine bids for this contact, DoD said.
For the laser testing transaction worth approximately $7 million, the company will perform experimental methods to measure the interaction of high-energy pulsed and high-power, continuous-wave lasers with individual and multi-material subsystems and is expected to complete work on May 28, 2020.
AFRL secured six offers for the contract and is committing $48,874 from fiscal 2015 research, development and test funds at the time of award, the Pentagon said.
