Leidos has received a $22 million contract to provide training and simulation equipment for the U.S. Army.
The order was placed under the Synthetic Environment Core Common Virtual Environment Management program, or SE Core CVEM. The program aims to bolster the Army's training simulation technologies to ensure the branch's personnel are more prepared for the battlefield.
Under the new contract, Leidos will deliver terrain data and battlefield equipment representations to support more realistic simulated environments.
"We're excited to continue to provide a full range of innovative and flexible simulation technology using our extensive expertise in system engineering, software signal and image processing, and custom system integration," Leidos Advanced Solutions Group president Mike Chagnon said in a press release. "We are dedicated to providing simulation technology that enables warfighters to train for ever-changing missions in global environments."
Work on the contract will be performed at the company's facility in Orlando, Fla.
