Leidos Awarded $17 Million By Army Space & Missile Defense Command

RESTON, Va., April 23, 2014—Leidos (NYSE: LDOS), a national security, health and engineering solutions company, announced it was awarded a prime contract by the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Forces Strategic Command (USASMDC/ARSTRAT) to provide intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance (ISR) and targeting support to the Air Combat Command. The company, formerly named Science Applications International Corporation, changed its name to Leidos, Inc. on September 27, 2013 in connection with the spin-off of its former technical, engineering and enterprise information technology business, which has assumed the company's former name.

The single-award firm fixed-price task order has a one-year base period of performance, two one-year options, and a contract value of approximately $17 million if the options are exercised. The task order was awarded under the Warfighter Modeling, Simulation, Analysis and Integration Support contract. USASMDC/ARSTRAT conducts space and missile defense operations and provides planning, integration, control and coordination of Army forces and capabilities in support of U.S. Strategic Command missions. Under the contract, the Leidos team will provide modeling, simulation, analysis, and integration support to better synchronize multi-discipline ISR; targeting; and computing technologies with air, space and cyberspace force operations.

"Leidos is privileged to continue our Air Combat Command relationship focused on strengthening Air Force targeting and ISR infrastructures, and providing operational unit commanders with relevant, accurate, and timely support across the spectrum of military operations," said Larry Hill, Leidos group president.

Leidos executed a Change of Name Agreement to the U.S. government to recognize the name change, which was approved by the responsible Defense Contract Management Agency contracting officer.
