AIBioTech®, a comprehensive contract research organization, is pleased to announce that it is acting as a subcontractor to Leidos, which was awarded a contract by the U.S. Air Force to provide research, development, testing and evaluation for Homeland Defense and Security Technical Area Tasks (HD TAT) to the Department of Defense (DoD) community of interest. Leidos is a national security, health and engineering solutions company and one of 12 contractors eligible to compete for task orders under the contract.

The contract has a total value of approximately $900 million if all options are exercised. The scope of work under the contract will encompass new and emerging adversary threats that could degrade U.S. (and allied) capabilities, new or extended capabilities in existing military systems and new technology applications to military problems.

“AIBioTech’s strengths in understanding and addressing issues of biodefense and its recognized expertise in state-of-the-art life science technologies were major factors in our selection to the Leidos team,” said Robert B. Harris, President and CSO of AIBioTech and Program Manager at AIBioTech for the new contract effort. “We are pleased to support the efforts of Leidos in meeting the challenges presented by DTIC.”
