Leidos to deliver support to US Army’s Synthetic Environment Program

Leidos has been awarded a contract worth $201 million by the US Army Contracting Command to develop and provide simulated training environments to meet the U.S. Army’s operational training requirements.

Leidos’ Synthetic Environment Core (SE Core) provides databases enabling high-resolution, realistic training environments with real-world 3D and 2D geographic terrain that fully integrates and operates within all training environments. SE Core allows warfighters to have a complete picture of the environment such as maps, roads, bridges, moving vehicles and buildings.

This capability helps US warfighters train as they fight in today’s battlespaces before entering theaters of combat operations.

Mike Chagnon, Leidos Advanced Solutions Group President, said: “Operationally relevant training requires operationally relevant data. As the battlespace evolves, it’s critical for our nation’s warfighters to have advanced technologies that better equip, protect and train them. Leidos will continue to apply its unparalleled geospatial and training expertise to add to the 14.4 million square kilometers of simulated terrain already in use by the Army.”

Leidos has been involved on the SE Core program for over 10 years, developing and producing terrain databases and common cultural and moving models for use across the Army family of constructive and virtual simulations.
