Leonardo DRS has secured a one-year, $74.9M contract to develop a technology for the U.S. Army to counter adversarial unmanned aircraft systems designed to target U.S. interests within and outside the country.

The company will develop, produce, deploy and support the Mobile-Low Slow, Small Unmanned Aircraft Integrated Defeat System under the cost-plus-fixed-fee contract, the Department of Defense said Thursday.

Army Contracting Command solicited and received one bid for the project, which is scheduled to conclude by Jan. 30, 2020.

The military service obligated $36.7M at the time of award from its fiscal 2019 research, development, test and evaluation; operations and maintenance; and "other" procurement funds.
