John Fratamico: Leidos to Help DTRA Build WMD Info Collection Tools

LeidosLogoLeidos (NYSE: LDOS) will provide tools to the Defense Threat Reduction Agency for evaluating chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear and high-yield explosive events under a potential $12 million task order.

The company said Monday that DTRA will use the web-based tools to help subject matter experts, the Defense Department and other government agencies collaboratively plan for and assess CBRNE incidents.

DTRA selected Leidos and six other contractors to compete for work under the agency’s potential 10-year, $4 billion Combating Weapons of Mass Destruction Research and Technology Development contract.

John Fratamico, a Leidos group president, said the company aims to help DTRA build tools that acquire “timely and actionable information critical to the planning and response to CBRNE events throughout the world.”

Work will occur at Fort Belvoir, Va. and in San Diego under the task order, which is for five base months and up to two option years.
