Leidos bags army geospatial mapping order

21st September 2016 - 16:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Leidos has been awarded a contract to support the US Army Geospatial Center's (AGC) High-Resolution, 3-D (HR3D) Geospatial Information programme, it was announced on 19 September.

The order has a one-year base period of performance and includes four one-year options, which if exercised could take the total contract value to $777 million.

The contract will see Leidos collect, process, disseminate, store and maintain HR3D geospatial information. This will include conducting airborne and terrestrial collection operations, processing the information and producing geospatial products for operational areas. The company will use a high velocity aircraft platform integrated with advanced Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) sensor technology for the collection process.

The AGC programme aims to address a critical gap for high-resolution mapping products covering the majority of the undeveloped world, as insufficient unclassified HR3D geospatial information limits the ability to engage with other nations effectively.
