Leidos, a U.S. science and technology firm, is to provide support services to U.S. military efforts to counter improvised explosive devices.
The support work will be for the U.S. Joint Improvised Threat Defeat Organization and in the areas of analytical operations, intelligence and training services.
"Our innovative operations, intelligence, and training services will arm JIDO with the capability to understand, disarm and defeat adversaries that employ improvised-threat weapons for nefarious purposes," said Leidos Defense Group President Michael Leiter.
Virginia-based CACI International issued the sub-contact to Leidos for the services. The award is a cost-plus, award-fee task order with a two-year base period of performance and three one-year options. It is worth $202 million if all options are exercised.
