Leidos Wins Potential $69M USAF Contract to Design Aircraft Protection System

Leidos (NYSE: LDOS) has secured a four-year, $68.6 million contract from the U.S. Air Force to study and develop concepts for protecting aircraft from expendable missiles and directed-energy threats.

The company will conduct research and development of countermeasure approaches for the Threat Assessment and Aircraft Protection Defensive Electronic Warfare program, the Department of Defense said Wednesday.

USAF is seeking a technology that could defend against airborne threats across the electro-optical and radio-frequency domains. The branch received one offer for the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract that also covers modeling, simulation and field testing work.

Leidos will perform services at Wright-Patterson AF Base in Ohio and will receive $1.4 million through the first task order.

The Pentagon expects the R&D project to be finished by Jan. 29, 2025.
