Leidos, a national security, health and engineering solutions company based in Reston, VA, announced February 11 that it was awarded a task order by the U.S. Army to provide mission support services to the Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center (CERDEC) Prototyping Integration and Testing (PI&T) Directorate. The single-award time and materials task order has a one-year base period of performance, four one-year options, and a total contract value of approximately $46 million if all options are exercised. Most of the work will be performed in Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md. The task order was awarded under the Rapid Prototyping and Technology Insertion (RPTI) Support Contract.
CERDEC advances soldier capabilities that enable situational awareness and understanding, establish and secure communications, and protect Soldiers from surprise attack. CP&I provides engineering design, consultation and expert support services for Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) platform systems integration including design, fabrication, installation, integration, environmental testing and fielding support.
Under the task order, Leidos will provide support services including research, development, engineering, design, purchasing, fabrication, integration, testing, logistics support, and shipping related to the integration of mission equipment into a Metrology System, and related project efforts to support the USMC TMDE test, repair, and calibration mission. The tactical Metrology Systems provide test, repair and calibration of Test, Measurement and Diagnostics Equipment (TMDE) to support safety and mission effectiveness.
“This is an important win that enhances our relationship with the U.S. Army Prototyping Integration and Testing Director and reflects our commitment to platform integration, as well as the C2 community,” said Leidos Group President Sam Gordy.
