Science and technology company Leidos has been awarded a new task order by the Army Contracting Command – Aberdeen Proving Ground to provide Intelligence, Electronic Warfare and Sensors, or IEW&S, system and software support to the Communications-Electronics Command’s Software Engineering Center’s Sensors and Mission Equipment Division.
The single-award indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract has a 1-year base, followed by four 1-year options, and a total approximate value of $210 million if all options are exercised.
CECOM is the Army’s materiel integrator for command, control, communications, computers, cyber, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance readiness. Under the IEW&S contract, Leidos is to provide system and software engineering support that will ensure reliability, maintainability, interoperability and configuration integrity of CECOM’s modern platform sensor and electronic warfare systems.
“Leidos understands the criticality of C5ISR readiness as warfighters face the possibility of electronic warfare,” said Mike Rickels, Leidos Defense Group senior vice president of C4ISR solutions. “We stand ready to help CECOM stay ahead of adversaries with secure software development and detailed production reporting.”
Leidos said it will implement its agile development process to the area of post-production and post-deployment software support, and will leverage a portfolio management dashboard to provide near real-time status of schedules and work efforts.
