Leidos provides technology and engineering services and solutions to the defense, intelligence, civil, and healthcare industries. The multimodal biometric identification system offered by the company caters to the mission-critical programs of various states, local, federal, and tribal authorities. For instance, the company delivered an information technology program named the FBI’s Next Generation Identification (NGI) program for the United States Department of Justice. Moreover, the company supported the Transportation Security Administration agency in activities such as enrolling, vetting, and credentialing maritime port workers across all the US states and territories.
The company has also adopted various inorganic activities to enhance its market position. This is evident from its merger with Lockheed Martin in August 2016. Under the agreement, Leidos would combine with Lockheed Martin's realigned information systems and global solutions business in a Reverse Morris Trust transaction. The merger was aimed at diversifying Leidos’ offerings and enabling access to new markets for supporting further growth. These strategic initiatives are expected to help the company in expanding its presence in the biometrics-as-a-service market.
