Leidos Inc., a Fortune 500 Reston, Virginia.-based defense contractor with offices in Beavercreek, has been awarded a nearly $13 million contract to help the Air Force with technology and research.

The contract is meant to provide the Air Force with technology to deliver high-performing air and ground target combat identification systems, the Department of Defense said Monday.

Work will be performed in Virginia and at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, where the contract originated. Work is expected to be complete by Oct. 30, 2025.

This award is a result of a competitive acquisition and two offers were received, the DoD said.

The contract came from Air Force Materiel Command and Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), both located at Wright-Patterson, according to the DoD.

In July, Leidos won another contract originating at Wright-Patterson to help the Air Force with networked sensors and signal processing to aid in the detection and targeting of enemy targets. AFRL officials announced that $3 million contract, which was awarded on behalf of the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency in Arlington, Virginia.
