Leidos Secures $104M Contract to Modernize Army Gunnery Training Simulators
The U.S. Army has awarded Leidos a potential $104 million single-award contract to help modernize the military’s gunnery training simulators.
Leidos said the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity deal was awarded by the U.S. Army Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation. Work will be done in Orlando, Florida, Leidos said Tuesday.
PEO STRI is responsible for developing and sustaining the U.S. Army’s testing, training and information operations systems, according to its website.
Mike Rickels, senior vice president of command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance at Leidos, said the simulators are designed to help service members improve their proficiency with the U.S. Army’s operating equipment.
Leidos explained that the gunnery training simulators connect the body of a weapon to a virtual reality system.
Rickels added that the modernization contract will provide concurrency updates and improve the training experience across multiple simulator variants.
Headquartered in Reston, Virginia, Leidos is a science and technology company that works with clients in the defense, intelligence, civil and health sectors.
Under the terms of the deal, Leidos will perform system and software maintenance, development and deployment tasks to improve the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center‘s ability security against sUAS threats.
