RESTON, Va. The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) tasked Leidos to provide research and development (R&D) under an initial task order for the Mission Systems Open Architecture Science and Technology (MOAST) Program. The contract has a seven-year performance period and has a total shared ceiling value of approximately $48 million.

Under the MOAST program, Leidos will perform R&D to help evolve and expand emerging open systems architecture standards for existing and next-generation Air Force and Department of Defense (DoD) weapon systems, while also ensuring or enhancing cyber resilience.

Work for the multiple award, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract will be performed primarily at Wright Patterson Air Force Base.
