Leidos has won an $11 million contract with the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Forces Strategic Command to support the Joint Integrated Air and Missile Defense simulator.
The U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Forces Strategic Command conducts space and missile defense operations and provides planning, integration, control and coordination of Army forces and capabilities in support of U.S. Strategic Command missions.
Under the contract, Leidos will upgrade, maintain and provide technical support to the Joint Integrated Air and Missile Defense Hardware in the Loop Simulator, the company said in a release.
The Joint Integrated Air and Missile Defense Hardware in the Loop Simulator is used in the development and testing of complex real-time embedded systems, providing a platform by adding a mathematical representation of all related dynamic systems.
In radar systems, this technique allows for testing and evaluation of radar systems, reducing the need for flight trials and field tests.
