Leidos has won the potential $1.7 billion recompete of a contract for broad systems integration support services to the Federal Aviation Administration in support of air traffic control modernization efforts.
This new fourth iteration of the National Airspace Systems Integration Support contract covers a four-year base period followed by two three-year option periods, the FAA said Tuesday in a Beta.Sam.Gov notice.
The FAA uses the contract to acquire engineering and technical resources needed for integrating new systems, components and equipment into the National Airspace System that includes the airspace itself, navigation facilities and airports.
Also known as NISC, this program is a longstanding one for Leidos and the now-former Lockheed Martin IT services business acquired by the former four years ago. Deltek indicates Lockheed first won the work in 1997, then successfully cleared two recompete hurdles in 2008 and 2010.
Work areas include strategic and transition planning, test-and-evaluation, training, automation, flight procedures, security and safety, business intelligence, data analytics and unmanned aircraft systems.
