Leidos will support the Air Force Avionics Intermediate Shop Product Support Integration program. Under the contract, Leidos will be an independent non-manufacturing product support integrator for the Air Force’s F-16 avionics shops that perform maintenance on the electronics of the fighter aircraft.

"Ensuring our customer has what is needed to keep their F-16 fleet in the air requires expert product support and logistics through integrated services at a large scale," said Aaron Bedrowsky, Leidos senior vice president, operations and logistics solutions.

Additional services include the sustainment and procurement of test program set system hardware and software, and management of automated test equipment components and support equipment for the F-16. 

Leidos technical experts will manage the sustainment of over 300 critical assets. Work will support seven USAF major commands, participating European air forces, and foreign military sales countries. 

Bedrowsky was excited about the support Leidos would be providing the US Air Force.
