RESTON, Va., July 30, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Leidos (NYSE: LDOS), a FORTUNE® 500 science and technology leader, will showcase its innovative solutions and capabilities for U.S. naval forces during the 2021 Sea-Air-Space Exposition August 2-4 in National Harbor, MD. Sea-Air-Space brings the U.S. defense industry and key military decision makers together for three days of informative educational sessions and important policy discussions.
Leidos has significantly expanded its maritime portfolio over the last two years – including acquiring Dynetics, 1901 Group and the naval architecture firm Gibbs & Cox. The acquisitions have added innovative capabilities to the company's arsenal in areas such as hypersonics, IT managed services, cloud migration, autonomy, and platform capability. Additionally, the company recently received authorization to assume full operational responsibility for the Navy's and Marine Corps' three on-shore IT networks as part of the Navy's $7.7 billion Next Generation Enterprise Network (NGEN) Service Management, Integration and Transport (SMIT) contract. The contract is critical to helping the Navy modernize its digital infrastructure.
"As technology continues to evolve rapidly, and adversaries become more sophisticated, our customers must also adapt to maintain a competitive offensive and defensive edge," said Nevin Carr, Leidos' Navy Strategic Account Executive. "Leidos has supported the U.S. Navy's critical programs for over 90 years. We look forward to showcasing our innovative solutions and mission support to help the Navy keep the seas safe and free."
With the U.S. Department of Defense turning to unmanned maritime autonomous platforms, the company plans to showcase Sea Hunter and Seahawk, cutting-edge autonomous vessels, and a variety of undersea solutions. Autonomous vessels are designed to operate with little human involvement, thus providing a forward-deployed and rapid-response asset for the global maritime surveillance network and other missions. Leidos experts will also highlight their newest technologies, including DevSecOps processes, Edge-to-Cloud, JADC2/Overmatch, and multi-domain ISR.
