“This win complements our role as the lead developer for the next generation AFATDS 7.0 software and positions us as the prime contractor responsible for all Army AFATDS systems and software engineering for the next several years,” according to the Senior Vice President Eric Freeman, Leidos C4ISR Solutions.

Furthermore, the project is for a base year and for four additional year options which elaborates Leidos support for the U.S. Army’s Communications-Electronics Command Software Engineering Center.

The news also draws attention to another task which was recently awarded to Leidos. Allegedly, it was a task worth $900 million and majorly involved the Surveillance, Intelligence, and Reconnaissance (ISR) Support Services with Air Force Air Combat Command.
