Leidos has won a prime contract from the U.S. Army to provide technical services and field support for the branch's Tactical Unmanned Aircraft Systems.

Under the agreement, announced on Wednesday, the company will share the work with two other contractors. If all options are exercised, the contract has a total potential value of $900 million for all awardees.
