Leidos will provide aircraft ISR support services to the US Army under a new task order announced on 16 September.

The single award task order, worth up to $428 million, has a one-year based period of performance followed by four one-year option periods.

Leidos will provide operations, sustainment, programme management, cybersecurity and engineering support services to the army's Product Director, Airborne Reconnaissance Low (PD ARL), which requires support for aircraft systems such as the ARL-M, ARL-E and Saturn Arch. PD ARL develops, integrates, supports and fields integrated sensors and integrated systems across a broad spectrum of intelligence capabilities including EO/IR, synthetic aperture radar/ground moving target indicators, signals intelligence, geospatial intelligence, and measurement and signature intelligence.

Gerry Fasano, Leidos Defense group president, said: ‘The army continues to turn to Leidos for airborne reconnaissance support that helps warfighters remain aware of their operational environments for a range of critical missions. This award upholds the key infrastructure investments and strategic industry partnerships we've instituted in our airborne solutions operation.’
