Leidos (NYSE: LDOS) has secured a potential four-year, $99 million prime contract from the U.S. Army to build and deliver automated installation entry systems to the service branch’s product manager for force protection systems.
The company said Friday it will develop hardware and software to update the detection, assessment and warning systems at approximately 35 military installations under the single-award contract.
Leidos noted the Automated Installation Entry-3 project will deliver an interoperable and integrated system for the Army to manage personnel access to bases as well as gain situational awareness and share information.
“Providing for the safety and well-being of the people that protect our country and their families is a mission of the highest priority, ” said Mary Craft, president of Leidos’ global services group.
“We look forward to working with the PdM-FPS to enhance installation security and force protection and reduce troop-to-task functions by streamlining authentication and verification of personnel entering Army Installations.”
PdM-FPS, formerly known as the Joint PEO Chemical Biological Defense, oversees integrated base defense and force protection capacity for the Army.
