Leidos has received a contract from the US Navy's Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) to provide flexible, ready and rapidly deployable capabilities for aviation systems worldwide.
The multiple award, hybrid contract has a total potential value of $12.6 billion and a five-year base period of performance with five optional years.
Under the contract, Leidos will provide aviation logistical services for fixed-wing, rotary-wing, UAS and lighter than air vehicles, as well as integrally related systems and weapon systems.

Our systems have successfully flown thousands of hours supporting the warfighter in combat zones as well as on the ground processing and exploiting mission-critical information.’
