Leidos has been granted a $13 million Air Force contract for research and development related to high speed weapons, the U.S. Department of Defense announced during its Wednesday publication of labor contracts.
The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract tasks Ledios with aiding technology research and development, modeling, simulation, and testing work intended to solve high speed weapons issues. The labor will be conducted at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla., and should be finished by Jan. 31, 2021.
Virginia-based professional services company Systems Planning and Analysis has been awarded a $13.5 million Navy contract to conduct engineering, technical, and other professional work devoted to the development of above-water sensor systems. The cost-plus-incentive-fee, cost-only contract could be worth as much as $35 million, should various contract options be exercised. The majority of the contract funds–93 percent—benefit the U.S. Navy, while the remaining amount aids the Japanese government. Nearly $2.5 million of the funding will be assigned when the contract is awarded, with nearly $600,000 of that amount expiring at the end of the 2016 fiscal year. The cost-plus-incentive-fee, cost-only contract was not competitively acquired. More than 90 percent of the work will be conducted in Washington, D.C., with the remaining work taking place at various locations throughout the U.S. All of the labor should be finished by July.
American Airlines will provide the U.S. military with commercial air cargo transportation after a one-year contract option worth an estimated $125.9 million was exercised.

American Airlines will provide the transportation between locations worldwide, and is slated to end the service Jan. 31, 2017. All related contract funds will be assigned through decentralized orders.
