Leidos received a $777 million contract to support the Army Geospatial Center’s High-Resolution, 3-D Geospatial Information program — otherwise known as HR3D.
Under the contract, which the General Services Administration awarded Monday, Leidos is set to collect, process, disseminate, store and maintain HR3D geospatial information. It will also conduct collection operations, process the information and produce geospatial products as needed.
“Leidos has a long history of directly supporting U.S. Army warfighters through vital airborne programs,” said Roger Krone, Leidos’ chairman and CEO. “Our team is excited to continue that support using advanced technologies to produce critical mapping products.”
During the collection, Leidos will integrate advanced light detection and ranging sensor technology at a higher altitude by using a higher velocity aircraft platform. The program will also address the gap between insufficient HR3D geospatial information and working with other nations to expand their capabilities while working towards a sustainable and secure environment.
Partnering with Leidos will be KEYW Corporation, Tenax TM LLC, Neany Inc., Sigma Space Corp., OG Systems LLC, Pixia Corp. and Woolpert Inc. By teaming up, the organization hopes to provide cost-effective solutions for the ASG program.
“The selection of the Leidos team on this contract solidifies our standing as leaders in airborne capabilities,” said 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 DoD’s mission requirements.”
The deal is one of the largest since Leidos merged with Lockheed Martin‘s government IT business earlier this year, creating the largest government services provider in the U.S. with a $10 billion annual revenue base.
