NATO’s Communications and Information Agency (NCI) has assigned two separate contracts with US-based Leidos.

The total value of the two fixed-price fixed-price contracts is approximately $ 90 million.

In addition, each contract has a four-year baseline implementation period, along with additional maintenance options of up to four years.

The treaties aim to help improve the Alliance’s ballistic missile defense (BMD) capabilities.

As part of the terms of the agreement, the company will lead an international team that will define NATO’s BMD architecture and develop requirements for NATO’s Command and Control Systems (C2).

Leidos will further integrate and evaluate C2 systems, together with the operation, maintenance and upgrade of the NATO BMD Integration Test Bench (ITB).

Mike Rickles, Senior Vice President of Leidos Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) Solutions, said: “We are honored to have the opportunity to continue our support for NATO’s BMD program.

“Our international team has over 20 years of experience in partnership with NATO, and we look forward to helping to improve the Alliance’s missile defense capabilities.

Both treaties awarded to Leidos fall under NATO’s missile defense program, which allows NATO nations to act as one and respond to ballistic missile attacks.

Headquartered in Brussels, Belgium, the NATO NCI focuses on providing advanced C4ISR technology to support Alliance missions and address new challenges and threats.

The agency is responsible for developing the capabilities of the BMD C2 needed to protect NATO countries and territories against the threat of ballistic missiles, along with technology that allows NATO to plan, conduct and monitor all air operations.
