Leidos (NYSE: LDOS) has won a potential six-year, $46.5M contract from the U.S. Air Force to develop, test and integrate geophysical data processing platforms for the U.S. National Data Center. The company will also help configure and maintain subsystems located at Patrick AF Base in Florida as part of the U.S. NDC Operations Support and Studies II contract, the Department of Defense said Tuesday.
DoD added the follow-on contract will involve research efforts aimed at updating methods and tools for center personnel to classify events, store seismic signatures and process geophysical data used to address nuclear treaty monitoring requirements.
Reston, Va.-based Leidos has supported the Air Force Technical Operations Center’s Nuclear Treaty Monitoring Directorate since the government’s 2015 fiscal year as incumbent contractor under the original IDIQ, which is slated to conclude by the end of FY 2019, according to a FedBizOpps summary.
The Pentagon expects the company to finish work under the new contract by Oct. 31, 2025.
