Leidos to Modernize Army Fires C2 System Under Potential $102M Contract

Leidos (NYSE: LDOS) has won a potential five-year, $102 million contract to perform systems engineering, software development and integration on a fire support command-and-control system for the U.S. Army.

The company said Tuesday it will update the Army’s Advanced Field Artillery Tactical Data System to help optimize the platform’s functionality, simplify user training and provide an intuitive software interface.

Leidos will also work to move AFATDS software into the Army’s software Common Operating Environment, a project that seeks to transition standalone warfighting software into integrated software applications.

Mike Chagnon, president of Leidos’ advanced solutions group, said the company will use its Enterprise Application Framework to upgrade AFATDS in an effort to boost the system’s usability.

AFATDS is designed to help the Army and U.S. Marine Corps plan, coordinate, control and execute fires and effects.

The contract has a three-year base period and one two-year option.
