Leidos (NYSE: LDOS) has received a five-year, $450 million contract from the Transportation Security Administration to deploy transportation security systems in a number of facilities.

Leidos will work to install passenger and carry-on baggage screening technologies at airports, ports, terminals, cargo facilities and other checkpoints within the East region, Leidos said Tuesday.

“We are honored to be chosen by the TSA for the transportation security equipment deployment contract, a program of national importance that helps to secure the homeland, and protect our nation’s transportation infrastructure and the people travelling within it, ” said Sam Gordy, Leidos group president.

The company will also take responsibility in deploying new technologies on a risk-based model, retiring old technologies and relocating systems when needed.

In early August, Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) was also awarded a similar contract to provide security technologies and equipment at various transportation checkpoints in the Western region.
