Leidos to Develop Next Generation Counter Technologies for Submarine Defense
Thursday, January 10, 2019

RESTON, Va., Jan. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Leidos (NYSE: LDOS), a FORTUNE® 500 science and technology leader, was awarded a contract by the U.S. Navy's Naval Sea Systems Command to develop torpedo countermeasure technologies for submarine defense. The single award, cost-plus-fixed-fee contract has a two-year base period of performance, three one-year option years, and a potential value of approximately $36 million, if all options are exercised. Work will be performed in Washington, Northern Virginia, Ohio, California, and Florida.

Leidos will design, build, and test an acoustic device countermeasure (ADC) called the ADC MK5 - a three-inch diameter device launched from submarines to defend against incoming torpedoes. The company will also provide technical and non-recurring engineering services such as software and hardware development. The project is part of the Navy's Next Generation Countermeasure program to replace existing ADC MK3 systems with newer technologies.

"We employ a different mindset on how to keep up in a dynamic and rapidly changing defense environment where world class systems are the only option for our defense customers to accomplish their missions," said Leidos Defense Group President, Gerry Fasano. "This win opens a new market for our organization in underwater sensors, and our focus is to provide the right combination of technical depth and customer insight to deliver the right solutions within challenging operational environments."
