Leidos (NYSE: LDOS) has been awarded a potential 11-year, $350 million contract by the U.S. Air Force to perform engineering integration work on the Joint Mission Planning System for military aircraft, weapon and sensor missions.

The Defense Department said Thursday the company will support the JMPS environment and JMPS integrated build environments under the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract.

The Air Force will obligate $9.4 million in fiscal 2016 and 2017 research, development, test and evaluation; operations and maintenance; procurement; and foreign military sales funds for the first two delivery orders.

DoD added the contract also includes FMS transactions with Australia, Belgium, Canada, Chile, Denmark, Egypt, France, India, Indonesia, Iraq, Jordan, Korea, Morocco, NATO, Netherlands, Norway, Oman, Poland, Portugal, Qatar, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, United Arab Emirates and the U.K.

Leidos will perform work in Reston, Virginia and Orlando, Florida through Dec. 7, 2027.

JMPS is managed by the U.S. Navy‘s Strike Planning and Execution Systems Program Office and designed to load mission data into aircraft, weapons and avionics systems.

Nine companies won positions on a five-year, $99 million contract in March 2015 to help the Navy develop, test, field and maintain software for strike planning and execution systems.
