Leidos Secures Dollar 32M Marine Corps Contract: Leidos, a cutting-edge science and technology company, recently clinched a substantial $32 million contract from the Marine Corps System Command through the Consortium Management Group.

This contract is geared towards the development of defense radar systems and mandates the creation of 4 prototype systems for Medium Range Air Defense Radar within a two-year timeframe.

Larry Barisciano, the weapons technology operations manager for Leidos’ Dynetics Group, expressed his enthusiasm about this achievement, stating, “This win represents a significant transition for the Leidos team.

Our successful R&D process has created a path for this opportunity to become a true program of record. We’re excited to begin developing, producing and deploying these sensors for our nation’s Marines.”

The development of these new systems will draw upon the expertise gained from previous sensor development programs, as highlighted by Leidos.

The majority of the work will take place in Huntsville, Alabama, and Arlington, Virginia.

The anticipated delivery date for these systems is set for 2025.

It’s worth noting that Leidos’ Dynetics Group has a track record of success, having previously developed the Marine Expeditionary Long Range Persistent Sensor assets through the Office of Naval Research Multi-domain Radar in Contested Environments program, managed by Leidos’ Innovation Center.
