Leidos Tech for US Navy Submarine Defense

Leidos Defense Group President, Gerry Fasano

Leidos has been awarded a contract by the US Navy’s Naval Sea Systems Command to develop torpedo countermeasure technologies for submarine defense.

The contract has a two-year base period of performance, three one-year option years, and a potential value of approximately $36 million, if all options are exercised.

Work will be performed in Washington, Northern Virginia, Ohio, California, and Florida.

Leidos will design, build, and test an acoustic device countermeasure (ADC) called the ADC MK5 – a three-inch diameter device launched from submarines to defend against incoming torpedoes.

The company will also provide technical and non-recurring engineering services such as software and hardware development.

The project is part of the Navy’s Next Generation Countermeasure program to replace existing ADC MK3 systems with newer technologies.

Leidos Defense Group President, Gerry Fasano, said: “This win opens a new market for our organization in underwater sensors, and our focus is to provide the right combination of technical depth and customer insight to deliver the right solutions within challenging operational environments.”
