Leidos’ CEMA work moves to program of record with recent award
Huntsville, Ala. (Sept. 12, 2023) – Leidos announced today that its Dynetics Group was recently awarded a $124.7 million Cyber Electromagnetic Activities (CEMA) contract from U.S. Army Contracting Command to support the Army’s Missile and Space Program Executive Office (PEO). This award is critical to the safety and security of the U.S. warfighter because it provides CEMA resiliency to vital Army PEO Missile and Space weapon systems.
CEMA resiliency enables Army Air and Missile Defense weapon systems to endure and fight through cyber attacks and defend U.S. forces. Conducting Survivability and Resiliency Exercises (SuReX) focuses on providing unequalled assessment and non-attributable testing for simultaneous, layered CEMA effects.
“We’re proud to build on our partnership with the Army to create and now deploy innovative capabilities to enhance the cyber protection of critical weapon systems,” said Jonathan Pettus, Senior Vice President and Operations Manager for Leidos Dynetics Aerospace, Defense and Civil. “This contract enables the Army to take advantage of more data-centric capabilities. The work is focused on enabling effective operations in contested environments, while staying ahead of adversaries on future battlefields.”
Work on CEMA/SuReX will be performed at Redstone Arsenal and other test facilities, including the Army FIRES Center of Excellence in Fort Sill, Oklahoma.
