Dynetics Wins $237M Army Contract to Develop Indirect Fire Protection System Prototypes

Dynetics, a subsidiary of Leidos (NYSE: LDOS), has won a $237.4 million contract from the U.S. Army to develop launcher and interceptor prototypes for a ground-based weapon system intended to engage aerial threats such as subsonic cruise missiles and unmanned aircraft systems.

Huntsville, Alabama-based Dynetics will provide 16 launchers and 60 interceptors, plus all-up-round magazines, to the Army’s Indirect Fire Protection Capability Increment 2 program, the Department of Defense said Friday.

The service received two bids for the other transaction agreement and expects the prototyping work to finish by March 29, 2024.

In a separate announcement, the Army noted that the Integrated Air and Missile Defense Battle Command System and the Sentinel will function as the fire-control and sensor elements of the IFPC.
