Leidos (NYSE: LDOS) has landed a potential 15-year, $1B contract to update the Federal Aviation Administration’s digital flight briefing service with aeronautical and weather data as well as flight planning support features.

The Future Flight Services Program contract has a five-year base period and 10 one-year options, Leidos said Tuesday.

Work under the follow-on contract builds on FAA’s Automated Flight Service Station award, which Leidos secured in 2005 and covered support of the 1800wxbrief portal for flight services and self-service features to users within the contiguous U.S., Hawaii and Puerto Rico.

Jim Moos, acting president of Leidos’ civil group, said the company will work to deliver flight briefing services and modifications such as interactive mapping technology to help pilots better plan flights in line with agency standards.

Contract work will take place in Ashburn, Va., and Fort Worth, Texas.

FAA created the Flight Service program to communicate flight plans, pilot briefings, aircraft emergency activities, inflight advisory services and search-and-rescue initiation procedures with National Airspace System users.
