Leidos officially assumed the NSF Antarctic Support Contract (ASC) from Lockheed-Martin. So what's the deal? When Lockheed-Martin was awarded the contract, after a 2-year delay, in December 2011 (they officially took over on 1 April 2012), expectations were that they would run things up through 2025 (4-1/2 year initial award period plus an 8-1/2 year maximum extension period.

So...what happened? Who is Leidos? And what does this mean to the program? For those who might consider this page to be TL;DR, I could just say that Lockheed-Martin sold their IS&GS division (where the USAP contract was being managed) to Leidos, but that would be an inaccurate oversimplification.

Iraqi Major General Kamal said, "It is important for them (Iraqis) to see tangible results and cooperation," "Building up an air force takes so much work, finance and dedication."

Although Iraq's air force is much smaller now compared to during Saddam Hussein's era, now it is better than before, Iraqi Col. Jabber said. "Now our air force supports the government and the people. In the past the air force only supported Saddam," he said. "We are humanitarian now."

Dyncorp International

DynCorp International is consolidating its business units and starting a new group in an effort to expand into more international work. The shift is only the latest in the defense contracting industry, which is rapidly reshaping to adapt to a slowdown in federal spending.

That adaptation is taking different forms. Some, such as Bethesda-based Lockheed Martin, are splitting their business units , while others, such as Hanover-based cyber security firm KEYW, are setting up separate commercially focused units.

Waltham, Mass.-based Raytheon Company last month announced it would consolidate its business units, including combining its intelligence and information systems business with its technical services unit. Last week, the contractor said the resulting intelligence, information and services business will have its headquarters at the company’s Sterling office.

NSF and the USAP have been an anchoring U.S. presence in Antarctica since 1956 through its active and influential scientific research program, supporting fundamental discovery research that can only be done there and studying the Antarctic and its interactions with the rest of the planet. The program goals include:  understanding the region and how its ecosystems depend on the polar environment; understanding its effects on (and responses to) global processes such as climate; and using the region as a platform for fundamental research in every scientific discipline.  Antarctica's remoteness and extreme climate make it a unique and natural laboratory environment.
