Leidos lands potential $292.3M FAA contract
Reston-based federal contractor to provide display system for 300+ airports
The Federal Aviation Administration has awarded Reston-based federal contractor Leidos a potential 15-year, $292.3 million contract to provide an enterprise-wide display system to replace multiple information display platforms installed at more than 300 U.S. airport facilities, according to an Aug. 13 System for Award Management (SAM) notice.
Leidos will create the Enterprise Information Display System (E-IDS), which will support the agency’s efforts to deploy common hardware and software across several domains and system types at more than 4,000 workstations at the airports, according to the SAM notice. The Federal Aviation Administration operates under the U.S. Department of Transportation.
It is expected that the E-IDS will provide key information including weather data from airport sensors, runway status, visibility conditions and diagrams. The contract has a four-year base period and 11 one-year extension options.
With annual revenues of $11.09 billion last year and 37,000 employees, Leidos is a Fortune 500 company that specializes in technology and engineering services for federal defense agencies.
