Leidos Australia lands $4.2m UK contract

Leidos Australia has been awarded a $4.2 million contract with The National Archives, in partnership with the UK and Scottish Parliaments and governments, to deliver technology solutions using the TeraText software. 

TeraText combines the flexibility of a search engine with the precision of a traditional database to make searching and manipulating whole libraries of complex structured documents simple and scalable.


Christine Zeitz, Leidos Australia chief executive, said, "This is our second export deal of the TeraText product in the last year. It’s fantastic to see our product, which was designed and developed in Melbourne, competing and winning on the international stage."

The TeraText Product Suite is the evolution of a product originally conceived at RMIT University under an Australian Research Council Grant. The capability was further developed for the Australian Department of Defence and TeraText has subsequently been used by Defence and the Australian intelligence community.

In addition to supporting national security, Leidos Australia has also developed the product to support drafting and publishing complex legislation documents.

Locally, TeraText is used in the Federal Parliament, parliamentary counsels in NSW, Queensland and Tasmania, as well as the Australian Taxation Office. Globally, it is used in Canada, the US, Falkland Islands and Singapore.
