Some of Leidos' Possible $54M Navy Work to Be Done Locally

By Brad Graves Thursday, May 22, 2014

Leidos Inc., the Virginia company formerly known as Science Applications International Corp., said on May 22 that it received three task orders from the U.S. Navy that could be worth up to $54 million. The business will provide engineering, integration and training services, performing some of the work in San Diego. If the Navy exercises all of its options, work will last three years.

Work will cover a program called Distributed Common Ground System, Navy. Leidos (NYSE: LDOS) said the Navy is converting the system to cloud-based architecture and standardized networks.

The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic awarded the task orders under its battle space awareness indefinite delivery-indefinite quantity contract. Other work will be done in Maryland, Virginia and South Carolina.

Science Applications International Corp. was famously founded in an office above a La Jolla ballet studio. It made San Diego its home during the first 40 years of its existence.
