National security, health and engineering solutions provider Leidos has secured a contract from the US Army to provide a simulation, training and instrumentation (PEO STRI) programme.

PEO STRI is the US Army’s acquisition and contracting centre of excellence for simulation, training and testing capabilities.

Said to be the second of four options on its prime contract, the option chosen by the US Army PEO has a one-year period of performance and is meant to provide development of a live, virtual and constructive integrated training environment.

According to Leidos, the award represents the second of four one-year options with a total value of approximately $11m.

The company plans to perform the training work in Orlando, Florida, US.

"According to Leidos, the award represents the second of four one-year options with a total value of approximately $11m."

Warfighters can integrate, interoperate and ‘train as they fight’ in battlespaces prior to deployment and action in theatres of combat, with the help of the US Army’s SE core CVEM programme.

The programme provides high-fidelity terrain databases and the static and moving models within them.

The Leidos team used the SE core architecture and integration (A&I) programme and terrain databases during the contract period to expand the number of US Army customers and confederates.

For the initiative, the company also provided architecture analysis, development and technical and management support.

In order to meet the operational training requirements of warfighters, the company will continue to develop and provide the operational training terrain databases, common cultural and moving models, and virtual simulation architecture connectivity.

Leidos group president John Fratamico said: "Leidos is proud to provide simulation and training solutions through advanced technologies to help better equip, protect and train our soldiers."
