Leidos receives SE Core contract
Leidos has received a contract from the US Army Contracting Command – Orlando to develop and provide simulated training environments to meet US Army requirements, the company announced on 14 May.
The IDIQ contract has a one-year base period of performance with four one-year options, with a total contract value of $210 million.
Leidos' Synthetic Environment Core (SE Core) provides databases that enable high-resolution, realistic training scenarios with real-world 3D and 2D geographic terrain that fully integrates and operates within all training environments.
SE Core allows soldiers to get a complete picture of the environment such as maps, roads, bridges, moving vehicles and buildings. The capability provides training support to soldiers before they enter real battlefield conditions.
Mike Chagnon, president of Advanced Solutions Group, Leidos, said: ‘Operationally relevant training requires operationally relevant data. As the battlespace evolves, it is critical for our nation's warfighters to have advanced technologies that better equip, protect and train them.
'Leidos will continue to apply its unparalleled geospatial and training expertise to add to the 14.4 million square kilometers of simulated terrain already in use by the army.’
