Leidos wins $631M DIABLO contract

On May 7, Reston, VA-based Leidos announced that it recently received a $631 million award from the U.S. Army Contracting Command – Aberdeen Proving Grounds. The Development, Integration, Acquisitions, Bridging to Logistics & Operations (DIABLO) program positions the company as a leading mission equipment provider to the Army for the next 10 years.

“We are excited about the opportunity to support the Army’s DIABLO program,” said Tim Freeman, Leidos senior vice president for airborne systems. “Our full lifecycle work on sensors and airborne ISR is a legacy we’re proud of, and we look forward to expand upon that in support of the Army’s future capabilities work.”

Under the direction of the Project Director Sensors-Aerial Intelligence (PD SAI), the DIABLO contract has a requirement to develop, acquire, field and provide lifecycle support to tactically relevant aerial intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (AISR) sensors and integrated systems across a broad spectrum of multiple intelligence capabilities. This allows PD SAI to be agile and adaptable while working toward the Army’s modernization goals.

Leidos showcased its ability to provide platform agnostic sensor and technology solutions by providing independent technology and supplier evaluations from other programs the company currently supports. Its unique approach facilitates improved interoperability and adaptability for battlespace awareness and superiority in the current environments.
