Leidos awarded Army contract for software modernization

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.
