Leidos to Develop Army Emergency Warning System; Samuel Gordy Comments

LeidosLogoLeidos (NYSE: LDOS) has received $47 million in task order from the U.S. Army to develop and support an emergency management system for Army installations inside and outside of the country.

The contract was awarded under the Emergency Management Modernization Program covering enhanced 911 and mass warning notifications with network alerting systems and telephone alerting systems, Leidos said Monday.

Samuel Gordy, a Leidos group president, said the company will work with the Army to help commanders and emergency workers warn personnel at installations of potential hazards.

Contract work includes design, fielding, procurement, site surveys, support and training of E9-1-1 systems.

Leidos will also work to integrate land-mobile radio systems and computer-aided dispatch technologies to help improve accuracy and response times for personnel to alert others about threats, emergencies and hazards.

The system is intended to send warnings and emails to smartphones and desktop computers, telephone messages, messages through voice towers and marquee systems, the Integrated Public Alert Warning System network as well as social media alerts.
