SOFIC 2015: Leidos Showcases Integrated Solutions

Leidos, a security, health and engineering company, is presenting new perspectives on C2 (command and control), data analytics, cyber, maritime solutions and intelligence services.

The booth is featuring a Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) Operations Center (ROC) workstation that supports RPA operations Tip-to-Tail, designed as a service-oriented architecture, delivering mission flexibility with a reduced infrastructure footprint. ROC has a scalable, multi-level security domain capability that is a fully integrated crew solution tailorable to mission needs. Leidos Airborne System Integration Operation has partnered with multiple US DoD organizations, including the Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC) and the 27th Special Operations Wing to successfully design, develop, and deliver this cost-effective solution.

SOFIC provides an opportunity for Leidos to demonstrate the breadth of our integrated capabilities that enables Special Operations Forces to effectively address complex, global mission needs,” said Leidos National Security Sector President, Lou Von Thaer.

Leidos is also demonstrating the capabilities of a “Maritime Autonomy Package” on a 40’ vessel that will operate in the Gulf of Mexico. During SOFIC, visitors can enter the ROC for a real-time view of the vessel operating in fully autonomous mode (without human interventions). This vessel will demonstrate the capabilities of multi-INT sensor systems and coastal patrol, surveillance and reconnaissance, including dissemination of target imagery and radar tracks to a C4I node located in the Virginia Beach, Va area. Within the ROC, a screen will relay the C4I node’s tactical display and imagery where visitors can observe the vessel operating in real-time and re-task the vessel to conduct alternate missions.

Among other capabilities showcased in current operation are solutions supporting intelligence agencies, military services and Special Operations Forces for complex missions, including:

Command & Control Solutions:
Tactical Communications Solutions (TaCS) provides design, integration, test and delivery of TaCS to US, coalition and international partners. Solutions range from Multi-Level Security (MLS) Enterprise systems to secure fixed, mobile, transportable and portable communication systems linking the tactical edge to key decision makers for real time mission planning, intelligence and operations.

Data Analytics:
AIMES is a next-generation motion imagery exploitation tool created to solve the tough challenges faced by today's motion imagery analysts. It is the full motion video solution of choice for the Distributed Common Ground System (DCGS)-Air Force and DCGS-Army.

eXpeditionaryRT (XRT) is a ruggedized, transportable RT-RG (Real Time Regional Gateway) System that supports tactical mission scenarios which are mobile and disconnected from the traditional SIGINT(Signals Intelligence) Enterprise. XRT provides users with the capability to ingest data from local collection assets and conducts analysis on-site in real-time.

Tactical Geolocation Service is an automated geo-location processing system which is designed to read line of bearing (LOB) data in near real-time from a stream or drop box and produce geo-locations. With the use of Mongo DB, these geo-location results are databased and can be populated in GoogleEarth (in kml format) in near real-time for users to assess activity in their environment.
