Leidos received a delivery order by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Customs and Border Protection (CBP), to supply cargo and vehicle scanning systems, as well as provide optional training and maintenance to help CBP officers identify illegal materials while facilitating international trade. This order has a 30-month base period of performance and an option period of up to 10 years of maintenance from the final acceptance of the final unit. If all options are exercised, the total value is approximately $66 million.
Through this delivery order, Leidos will deliver 22 of the VACIS M6500 scanners, a Non-Intrusive Medium Energy Mobile Scanner, to CBP ports of entry across the United States. The VACIS M6500 scanners enable CBP to perform effective and efficient non-intrusive inspection of conveyances, including trailer trucks, pallets, trailer-mounted cargo containers and other vehicles for contraband such as illicit drugs, terrorist weapons and currency.
