Leidos (NYSE: LDOS) has been awarded a four-year, $49 million contract to develop, integrate and maintain training and analysis systems for U.S. Navy sensor operators.

The company said Wednesday that it would perform scientific, engineering and technical support for the training design, fabrication and implementation.

Leidos will perform work in West Bethesda, Maryland for the Naval Surface Warfare Center’s Carderock Division under the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract.

“We look forward to continuing our work with NWSC Carderock to provide these highly sophisticated trainers used to train Navy operators in employing sensors in complex littoral environments against quiet diesel and nuclear submarines, ” said John Fratamico, a Leidos group president.

The synthetic signature generation-based systems use the All World Environment Simulation and the Periscope Simulation visual simulation tools.
