Leidos (NYSE: LDOS) has won a nearly $14 million contract with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency to develop new deep ocean sensors for the U.S. Navy.
The company’s maritime operations division will perform research and development for DARPA’s transformational reliable acoustic path system and produce TRAPS nodes, Leidos said Wednesday.
“TRAPS integrates unique Leidos insights into deep ocean sound propagation, innovative new sensor technologies and advanced signal processing approaches to provide the Navy with a flexible, cost-effective and high-performance system, ” said John Fratamico, Leidos group president.
The contract is the fourth phase of a cost-plus-fixed-fee deal that contains a two-year period of performance.
The Navy will use these systems for various acoustic surveillance missions.
