A Reston, Va.-based technology, engineering, and science solutions provider said it has been awarded a contract with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that could be worth nearly $1 billion over the next six years. Leidos will provide technology to DHS that will include AI and RPA capability that will enable agencies to share intelligence seamlessly and securely.

“This contract continues our strong relationship with DHS,” said Roy Stevens, Leidos Intelligence Group president. “By supporting cross-agency intelligence sharing and secure collaboration for federal and civilian agencies, we’ll help DHS accomplish their mission of safeguarding the homeland. Our team will be focused on delivering capabilities like quantum resistant cryptography, artificial intelligence (AI) operations, robotic process automation and classified cloud service integration.”

The company said the Homeland Enterprise Information Technology Secure Services and Support (HEITS) follow-on contract, which supports and enhances the DHS networks, has a one-year base period of performance and six one-year options. The contract has a maximum value of $918 million if all options are exercised, according to a statement.
