RESTON, Va., Feb. 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Leidos (LDOS), a FORTUNE® 500 science and technology leader, has been awarded an $85.5 million follow-on contract by the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency to provide sustainment and adaptive maintenance for nine NGA mission applications. The single award, cost-plus-fixed-fee contract has a one-year base followed by four option years. Work will be performed in Gaithersburg, Md., Alexandria, Va., and Tucson, Az.
NGA collects, analyzes and distributes geospatial intelligence in support of national security. Under the NGA's restructured Sustainment for Analysis Services (SAS) contract, Leidos engineers will sustain legacy applications crucial to the agency as it develops new capabilities for its analysts and the greater geospatial community. Analysts use these applications for tasks such as imagery mapping, structured observation management, and data analysis.
The Leidos team leveraged its past performance on eight of the nine SAS mission applications along with its proven agile software development tools and processes to create an efficient solution for NGA that also minimizes transition risk for the agency's critical national security mission. Additionally, Leidos developed four of the applications that provide imagery exploitation and structured observation management under previous NGA development contracts.
"We have a long history supporting the NGA and have a deep understanding of their unique mission needs within the intelligence community," said Vicki Schmanske, Leidos Intelligence Group President. "We will continue to provide reliable applications that enable the NGA and other national security decision makers to swiftly respond to complex security threats facing the country."
