Leidos finalized its acquisition of Dynetics for $1.65 billion in Feb. 2020 to expand its technical capabilities, strengthen its presence in defense, civil and intelligence markets and advance opportunities within the Leidos Innovations Center (LINC).
David King stressed the acquisition as a positive for Dynetics as well as its employees. He was clear that the majority of the company’s work is developed for the Department of Defense (DoD) and the company’s capabilities in hardware and systems would provide innovative solutions for Leidos to continue its work with the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force and other key federal agencies.

King’s commitment to Dynetics’ employees, the federal sector’s technological capabilities and the growth of the GovCon sector have earned him the most prestigious award in the GovCon industry.
