Leidos was awarded a pharma deal with prime contract by the U.S. Defense Threat Reduction Agency to conduct research and development to combat weapons of mass destruction.

The multiple-award indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract has a five-year base period of performance, a five year option, and a total value of approximately $4 billion for all awardees, if all options are exercised.

The contract was awarded under the Combating Weapons of Mass Destruction Research and Technology Development ID/IQ contract.

In October 2012, PositiveID entered into a Teaming Agreement with Leidos, which paired Leidos' system engineering and integration capabilities with PositiveID's bio-threat detection technologies.

PositiveID will offer both its Firefly Dx handheld diagnostic system ("Firefly") as well as its M-BAND (Microfluidics-based Bioagent Networked Detector) airborne bio-threat detector as part of the Teaming Agreement.
