Office of Naval Research awards Leidos prime contract
Leidos of Reston, VA announced on July 11 that it was awarded a prime contract by the Office of Naval Research (ONR) to provide technical solutions for the Electromagnetic Maneuver Warfare Command and Control (EMC2) program. The multiple-award indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract has a five-year base period of performance, a two-year option period, and a total contract value of $900 million for all awardees, if the option is exercised. Leidos is one of 12 contractors eligible to compete for task orders under the contract.
The purpose of the EMC2 program is to identify the study, design, fabrication, integration, and test and evaluation tasks anticipated for the development and demonstration of a set of prototypes, and their component subsystems, that integrate radio frequency (RF) functionality electronic warfare, radar, communications, information operations into a common set of multi-function apertures, electronics and software/firmware through an architecture that is modular, scalable across platforms and open at the RF, electronics and software/firmware levels. Under the contract, Leidos will develop technology and prototypes to integrate RF functionality such as electronic warfare, radar, communications, and information operations into a common set of open architecture systems, antennas, electronics, and software.
“The selection of Leidos to be part of the EMC2 program enables us to leverage our strong portfolio of technology in resource management, real time RF spectrum operations, electromagnetic maneuver, and system integration for the Navy,” said Leidos Group President, John Fratamico. “We look forward to supporting ONR’s efforts to streamline operations, increase performance, and reduce cost.”
