Solving Mission-Critical Problems to Help Secure America

Leidos helps the U.S military, Department of Defense, and federal law enforcement respond to some of the biggest threats to our national security.

Leidos’ national security efforts span every branch of the military and support the full spectrum of military operations – from peace keeping and humanitarian missions to major conflicts. We also help the U.S. Department of Defense, the FBI, and other agencies combat terrorism, cybercrime, and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.

Whether helping the U.S. Army enhance night vision capabilities, the Air Force train far-flung units online, or the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command enable seamless, secure multimedia connectivity, our technical expertise lets U.S. forces work safer and smarter.

Leidos also develops products and applied technologies for anti-terrorism and Homeland Security efforts – inspection systems to scan cargo for contraband, portable X-ray systems to inspect suspect packages, even software to assess the human consequences of technological and natural disasters.
