Leidos has won a US Army contract to provide technical services and field support for the branch's Tactical Unmanned Aircraft Systems.

If all options are exercised, the contract has a total value of $900 million for all awardees, the company announced Wednesday.

Under the agreement, the company will share the work with two other contractors. In addition to services for Tactical Unmanned Aircraft Systems ( TAUS), Leidos will also support Universal Ground Control Stations and Universal Ground Data Terminals.

Tasks will include non-repetitive development, integration, inspection, analysis and testing.

The agreement will help the Army identify and integrate technologies more easily and reduce the workload for the branch's personnel.

"Leidos' expertise and success in integrating difficult aviation technical solutions, as well as our sustained excellence in delivering product and field support in austere overseas environments, enables us to support the US Army in their mission to employ Tactical Unmanned Aircraft Systems in support of our warfighters," Leidos' Tim Reardon said.
