Leidos will compete for task orders to develop analytic software and related platforms for the Army Research Laboratory’s sensors electron devices directorate under a potential five-year, $250 million contract the U.S. Army awarded in May.
The company will design software platforms that work to facilitate integration of large data sets and sensor redeployment in order to collect intelligence data and then use that data to help detect terrorist and insurgent activities, Leidos said Tuesday.
ARL’s SEDD performs research and development work on sensors, power, electron devices and energy in order to provide the service branch with electro-optical systems, radiofrequency tools and other platforms for use in persistent surveillance, intelligence and reconnaissance operations, the company said.
“We look forward to continuing to support the Army and its mission of ensuring military superiority in locating terrorist networks, insurgent activities and our commitment to national defense,” said John Fratamico, Leidos group president.
Leidos is one of the four companies that won spots on the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract.
The company said the cost-plus-fixed-fee contract contains a base term of one year and four option years.
