Transportation Security Administration Awards Leidos Prime Contract

Leidos (NYSE: LDOS), a FORTUNE 500® science and technology leader, was awarded a prime contract by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to continue to provide management, information technology (IT) security support, and engineering services in support of new, current, and legacy Transportation Security Equipment (TSE) systems in airports, TSA warehouses, and testing facilities. The single-award firm fixed-price indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract has a five-year period of performance, and a total contract value of approximately $17 million. Work will be performed primarily in Vista, Calif., with on-site deployment at airports across the United States.

Leidos has a long history of supporting TSA security initiatives, goals, and requirements through the design, development and deployment of Leidos Reduced-Size Explosives Detection Systems (RSEDS) for aviation security. The Reveal CT-80DR and CT-80DR+ Explosive Detection Systems (EDS) are the premiere RSEDS machines currently serving small to midsize U.S. airports, with more than 600 systems implemented at more than 200 major and regional U.S. airports. The systems are powerful, rugged, compact, and have served TSA for over a decade.

Under the contract, Leidos will help TSA manage its RSEDS inventory, move and redeploy EDS assets, and augment the EDS software to meet new and emerging threats. Leidos will provide for system management support, engineering support services, and IT security support services to support all TSE systems.

“We look forward to continuing the support of TSA with powerful and reliable threat detection technology, improving the safety of U.S. air travel, and protecting the nation’s transportation systems which helps ensure the freedom of movement of people and commerce,” said Leidos Group President Angie Heise.
