Leidos receives Navy undersea warfare contract
Contract includes options up to $292M
Leidos Inc., the Reston-based Fortune 500 government contractor, has received a nearly $24 million contract from Naval Sea Systems Command to install, integrate and maintain the Navy’s AN/SQQ-89 Surface Ship Undersea Warfare combat systems, according to a Department of Defense announcement last week.
The contract includes options that could bring the total award to nearly $292 million, with work continuing through May 2027. Work will be performed in several locations, including 41% in Norfolk.
The Navy’s AN/SQQ-89 Surface Ship Undersea Warfare combat system is used on the service’s surface combatants to locate and engage incoming enemy submarines.
According to DOD, 98% of the contract is for the Navy, while 2% combines purchases for the governments of Australia and Japan.
