Five companies have won contracts worth $900 million to fight roadside bombs and other improvised explosive devices that kill and wound U.S. soldiers fighting in theater.

The contract from the General Services Administration's Federal Systems Integration and Management Center will support the Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization (JIEDDO)  Counter-IED Operations/Intelligence Integration Center. The contract was announced on Jan. 10.

The winners are:

  • BAE Systems Technology Solutions & Services Inc.
