Leidos has been awarded a potential five-year, $210 million contract to develop simulated training environments for the Army to prepare for fights in modern battle environments.
This contract extends Leidos’ work on the Synthetic Environment Core program for the Army, which the company has supported for more than 10 years. The award covers an initial base year with up to four one-year options, Leidos said Monday.
The SE Core program tasks Leidos to develop and produce terrain databases, along with common cultural and moving models for use in constructive and virtual simulations.
SE Core is designed to show three-dimensional and two-dimensional geographic terrain information databases in order to help warfighters get a complete picture of the environment that includes maps, roads, bridges, moving vehicles and buildings.
