Leidos receives $46 million order from DTRA

Leidos, a national security solutions company, announced on Wednesday it received a $46 million task order from the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) to develop modeling technology and methodology to combat WMDs.

The multiple-award, cost-plus, fixed-fee task order contains a two-year base performance period with up to three additional years in options. The task order with the DTRA's Target Assessment Technologies Office is worth up to $46 million if all options are exercised.

Under the terms of the contract, Leidos will develop, apply and transition technologies to assess, characterize and find WMDs and hard and deeply buried targets (HDBTs) to help combatant commands. Leidos will develop analytical methodologies, tools and models for assessing and characterizing WMDs and HDBTs; conduct technical work related to the assessment and characterization of foreign HDBT and WMD development; and develop tools and methodologies for assessing facility vulnerabilities.

"Leidos is proud to develop, apply and transition innovative technologies in support of the Defense Threat Reduction Agency's mission to counter the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction," John Fratamico, the president of Leidos Group, said.

The DTRA provides the Department of Defense with technical, intellectual and operational support to counter threats posed by WMDs and high-yield explosives.

Leidos seeks to provide science and technology solutions to address challenges in engineering, health and national security.
