RESTON, Va., 20 Sept. 2016. Leidos (NYSE:LDOS) in Reston, Virginia, will support the Army Geospatial Center's (AGC’s) high-resolution 3D (HR3D) geospatial information program through a General Services Administration (GSA) One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services (OASIS) contract, with a one-year base period of performance and a total value of $777 million if all four one-year options are exercised.
Under the contract, the Leidos team will collect, process, disseminate, store, and maintain HR3D geospatial information. Leidos will conduct airborne and terrestrial collection operations, process the information, and produce geospatial products needed over operationally relevant areas.
In the collection process, Leidos will also integrate advanced Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) sensor technology from a higher altitude using a higher velocity aircraft platform. KEYW Corporation, Tenax TM LLC, Neany Inc., Sigma Space Corp., OG Systems LLC, Pixia Corp., and Woolpert Inc. are teaming with Leidos to provide the cost-effective solutions and capabilities for the AGC program.
Insufficient unclassified HR3D geospatial information also limits the ability of the U.S. to engage other nations in expanding their capabilities and working towards a sustainable, secure environment. The AGC program will address this critical gap for high-resolution mapping products covering the majority of the undeveloped world.
"Leidos has a long history of directly supporting U.S. Army warfighters through vital airborne programs," explains Leidos Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Roger A. Krone. "Our team is excited to continue that support using advanced technologies to produce critical mapping products."
"The selection of the Leidos team on this contract solidifies our standing as leaders in airborne capabilities," says John Fratamico, president of the Leidos Advanced Solutions Group. "We remain dedicated to supporting our customer and providing cost-effective, advanced technology solutions to meet the [Department of Defense’s] mission requirements."
Leidos is a global science and technology solutions leader working to solve the world's toughest challenges in the defense, intelligence, homeland security, civil, and health markets. The company's 33,000 employees support vital missions for government and commercial customers. Headquartered in Reston, Virginia, Leidos reported pro forma annual revenues of approximately $10 billion for the fiscal year ended 1 Jan. 2016 after giving effect to the recently completed combination of Leidos with Lockheed Martin's Information Systems & Global Solutions business (IS&GS).
