Leidos lands research contract with US Navy

u s  navy health research center

The Naval Medical Logistics Command has awarded Leidos a one-year base contract (with four one-year options) to provide research support services at its Naval Health Research Center (NHRC).

The contract is cost-plus-fixed-fee, and has a potential value of US$57.7 million ($80.2 million) if all options are exercised, with work to be performed in San Diego.


Leidos will research the effects of deployments, and career experiences, on the physical and mental health of service members and their families, a scheme created by NHRC to optimise the operational health and readiness of military members.

The research will focus on the long-term effects of service, such as:

  • Identifying specific risk factors for retention and readiness;
  • Reproductive health effects;
  • The physical and mental health effects of current and former service members and their families;
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder;
  • Biological markers related to traumatic brain injury; and
  • Other deployment health-related concerns.

"Research programs like this allow Leidos to form important and lasting partnerships with our customers so that we can work together to analyse and address complex problems," said Leidos health group president Jon Scholl.

"This important award will allow Leidos to provide the technical expertise to help ensure the mission readiness and wellbeing of our military members and their families.”

Leidos will provide experts to assist with epidemiology, psychology, medicine and data science to "provide scientific and research support for survey and database studies across the full research cycle".
