Leidos was awarded a prime contract by the U.S. Army to provide systems engineering, software development and integration on the Advanced Field Artillery Tactical Data System (AFATDS). This single-award, cost-plus incentive-fee contract has a three-year base period of performance and one two-year option. If all options are exercised, the contract is valued at more than $102 million.

Under the terms of the contract, Leidos says it will modernize AFATDS to improve functionality, support a more intuitive user software interface, enable more simplistic user training, and enable migration of AFATDS software into the Army’s software Common Operating Environment – an initiative that is transitioning standalone war-fighting software capabilities as integrated software applications.

The Advanced Field Artillery Tactical Data System (AFATDS) provides critical artillery systems fires command and control capability for the U.S. Army and Marine Corps.
