Leidos was awarded contract to develop electro-magnetic technology for the U.S. Air Force, the company announced this week.
The performance period of the cost-plus-fee, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract is five years. It carries a value of $38 million, including an initial $11 million task order.
Leidos said its work will primarily be performed at Kirtland Air Force Base, N.M., for the Air Force Research Laboratory, and will involve development of high power electromagnetic, or HPEM, technology. The work will include establishing a program and research facility, conducting component research, and working with the government and other researchers toward HPEM objectives.
“We look forward to continuing our efforts for the Air Force by developing critical next-generation capabilities such as this HPEM technology,” Mike Chagnon, president of Leidos Advanced Solutions Group, said in a press release. “As threats become more advanced, Leidos is committed to creating innovative solutions that enable our customers to achieve their missions.”
