Leidos Gets $73M Army Contract for Extended Night Eagle ISR Platform Support

Leidos has secured a 27-month, $72.6M contract to continue providing the U.S. Army with support services for an intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance system.

The company will work to support the Night Eagle platform under the firm-fixed-price contract, the Department of Defense said Monday. The Army uses Night Eagle’s sensors and communications features to support counter-explosives operations.

The Army immediately obligated the award’s full amount in operations and maintenance funds allotted for fiscal 2020 through 2022. Work will take place in Reston, Va., through April 25, 2022.

The contract follows a previous award Leidos received last year for support services.
