Exploration & Mission Support
Our technical solutions enable more mission for agencies that conduct exploration and scientific discovery from the edges of the earth to the farthest reaches of the solar system. We also modernize information technology infrastructure and communications strategy for a variety of civilian agency missions.
Leidos oversees all aspects of station services for research granted by the National Science Foundation at the three permanent research stations and vessels operated by the United States Antarctic Program. We provide logistics supply chain management, operational support for science execution, operation of research vessels, procurement of all food and supplies, researcher medical screening and travel arrangements, extreme cold weather clothing, intracontinental transportation coordination, food and shelter on the ice, and onsite facilities engineering and construction. Leidos also works with NASA to plan, coordinate, prepare, and pack standardized containers for all cargo missions to the International Space Station by international partner and commercial cargo vehicles.

Space Mission Operations
Leidos designs, develops, implements, operates, maintains, and sustains mission control and training systems in support of Human Space Flight (HSF). Our backend work is enabling NASA standard infrastructure, uninterrupted operations, and role-based security authentication. With expertise in ground command and control and telemetry disciplines, we also develop, support, and maintain large-scale satellite command and control systems. Our most recent system has delivered 2 million+ lines of code to support the International Space Station and all visiting vehicles.
Civil Spacecraft Engineering and Operations
With engineering expertise in a variety of disciplines, Leidos supports instrument and spacecraft programs with systems design, systems engineering, development, fabrication, integration, testing, and verification of space flight, airborne, and ground systems hardware and software. Space agencies turn to us when they need concepts of mission operations and in-space satellite servicing capabilities.
NASA Human Health and Research
Leidos supports the health, safety and productivity of crews living and working in space through the delivery of medical services, food services, research, technology development, engineering, operations, and flight hardware development. Our team was integral in the planning, analysis, and science associated with the “Year in Space” initiative recently completed by NASA.
