The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) Systems Center Atlantic has awarded global science and technology company Leidos a prime contract to provide technical expertise to sustain and update the Distributed Common Ground System – Navy (DCGS-N) Family of Systems (FoS). DCGS-N is the Navy’s shipboard and ashore intelligence enterprise, providing primary intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, and targeting support capability. Afloat or ashore, DCGS-N tools are critical for the operational commander’s battlespace awareness and netcentric operations.
The single-award, cost-plus fixed-fee contract has a one-year base period of performance, a single-year option, and a total contract value of approximately $43 million if the option is exercised. Under this follow-on contract in support of DCGS-N FoS, Leidos will provide technical assessment and evaluation, program definition, organization, and direction including the development of long and short-range plans. This includes the responsibility for formulating, guiding, and directing the evaluation approach; and defining and negotiating with agency personnel for the necessary resources.
Leidos will perform the work primarily in Charleston, S.C., Suitland, M.D., Norfolk, V.A., San Diego, C.A., and Fallon, N.V.
For the company’s demonstrated innovative technical expertise and guidance for DCGS-N since the program’s inception more than 10 years ago, Leidos has earned a Market Connections Winning Contractor commendation.
