Leidos Australia secures Land 2110 Phase 1B CBRND project

Leidos Australia has won a contract for Land 2110 Phase 1B from the Australian Department of Defence.

The cumulative value of the contract is $243.5 million over the Acquisition and Initial Support phase of five years.

In partnership with the Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group, Leidos will deliver critical capability to Defence in the area of Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Defence (CBRND).

The primary objective of the joint CBRND capability is to provide Force Protection to deployed Australian Defence Force (ADF) personnel, assigned coalition personnel, and designated civilians, both offshore and within Australia, against extant and emerging CBRN threats including environmental hazards. Additional objectives of the ADF’s CBRND capabilities are to enhance support to other government agencies in domestic CBRN incidents, and to assist integration in a coordinated whole of government effort.

The project will deliver and sustain capabilities in Detection, Identification and Monitoring, Warning and Reporting, Physical Protection, Hazard Management and Medical Support.

The deal will see Leidos Australia create local jobs through working with 14 Australian-based companies of which five are SMEs who will support capability delivery under the contract.

Forty new jobs will be created under the acquisition contract to support the Government’s Sovereign Industrial Capability Priority of Test, Evaluation, Certification and Systems’ Assurance, and will help to ensure a skilled and sustained Australian workforce to support Australia’s unique requirements. A further ten new jobs will be created to deliver the Initial Support Phase.

Christine Zeitz, Leidos Australia Chief Executive, said: “Leidos has a long heritage of delivering complex logistics and CBRND capability globally, and we are delighted to be chosen to deliver this critical capability to the ADF.”
