Leonardo DRS gets $841M contract to extend Army computing system support

Leonardo DRS has received a potential 10-year, $841.5 million contract to continue its hardware supply and engineering services for an Army computing platform used to manage networked-battle command information in a common environment.

Leonardo DRS was the lone bidder for the Mounted Family of Computer Systems 2 contract and will continue its work as an incumbent from the predecessor MFOCS contract awarded in 2013. The Defense Information Systems Agency ran the MFOCS 2 procurement.

The Defense Department said in its Friday awards digest the new contract has an initial five-year base period followed by five one-year option periods.

MFOCS is intended to support situational awareness, command-and-control and maneuvering capabilities through computing and display hardware at multiple configurable levels.

Devices that fall under the MFOCS umbrella include dismountable tablets, processor units, keyboard units, removable solid-state disk storage, display units, and cabling designed for various platforms, and other ruggedized tools for continuous operation in a variety of military and combat environments.
