Press release date: April 10, 2014

RESTON, Va. - Leidos (NYSE: LDOS) will demonstrate GeoRover, Airborne ISR and Geospatial Intelligence Solutions among other capabilities at the GEOINT 2013* Symposium, to be held on April 14-17, 2014 at the Tampa Convention Center in Tampa, Fla.

"GEOINT is an ideal opportunity to showcase the innovative geospatial intelligence technology solutions at Leidos, which are shaping the future of defense and national intelligence," said Lou Von Thaer, President of the Leidos National Security Sector.

Leidos is a science and technology solutions leader working to help address challenges facing national security, health and engineering. With approximately 22,000 employees, Leidos has a powerful platform for delivering the most advanced capabilities and expertise to government and commercial customers.

"We have a deep understanding of the evolving challenges in geospatial intelligence. Our breadth of advanced capabilities and affordable solutions support vital missions for our customers, helping to defend our nation and protect critical infrastructure," added Von Thaer.

Hosted by the United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF), the GEOINT 2013* Symposium brings defense, intelligence and homeland security communities together. During the symposium, Rob Zitz, Leidos senior vice president and chief systems architect, will address the topic "Small Satellite and Associated TPED" during Lightning Talks and Lunch on April 14, at 11:00 a.m. Zitz will also serve as moderator during the sessions "GEOINT Foreword: SmallSat Remote Sensing Innovations" on April 14, at 2:15 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. He is also among a panel of experts for the GEOINT Certification Roundtable discussion during the event.

Leidos demonstrations at GEOINT 2013* include:

C2 Solutions:

-- Advanced Geospatial Framework, a multi-intelligence framework that
delivers Big Data to analysts through a standard web browser using
existing communications infrastructure. This seamlessly integrates
multiple sensor types into a consistent thin-client environment where
users can search for all available data types over any geographical
region over any time period.
-- Geospatial Content Management Solutions, a commercial off-the-shelf
(COTS) solution incorporating advanced capabilities for archival,
discovery, retrieval, and dissemination of geospatial intelligence
(GEOINT) and imagery, this content management capability combines
geospatial data management with a browser-based search interface. It is
flexible and scalable, and contains enhanced functionality to support
GEOINT and imagery products as analyst needs evolve.

Geospatial Intelligence Solutions

-- GEOINT data and solutions - cutting-edge solutions in integration,
conflation, harmonization, and automation provide access to the most
current and accurate GEOINT foundation data. Advances in commercial
imagery, open source, and commodity data enable Leidos to provide
companies and organizations across a wide-spectrum of industries with
the high quality data and products that were once only available to the
defense and intelligence communities. Leidos offers products in as
little as 20 percent of the time and at one-third the cost of comparable
industry-standard production. Our GEOINT data production solutions have
captured the globe, providing actionable intelligence that is
accessible, scalable, and cost effective.
-- Global Monitoring and Planning Service (GLMPS) predictive algorithms
maximize situational awareness and readiness by providing lead time to
prioritize likely mission and operational requirements, coordinate with
stakeholders, and conduct stabilizing operations in a dynamic world.
Leveraging machine learning, data mining and a historical database of
Geospatial and Cultural Indicators initial tests of GLMPS demonstrate
greater than 75 percent accuracy in identifying locations of likely
instability. Data mining discovers unseen relationships between
potential indicators and databases of instability metrics and events.
Algorithms are developed and validated using historical data and applied
to predict location and timing of a range of likely future instability
events. Trend analysis, tipping and queuing are enabled through analysis
of at least 30 environmental, political, social, and economic datasets,
and custom metrics characterizing temporal rates of change.
-- AIMES, a next-generation full-motion video (FMV) imagery exploitation
tool delivered to customers that enable motion imagery, geospatial data,
snapshots, and mass of associated data in near real-time, helping to
reduce analyst workload and speed the provision of intelligence to
decision-makers. The FMV has been a solution of choice for several
customers including Air Force Distributed Common Ground/Surface Systems
(AF-DCGS) and Distributed Common Ground Army (DCGS-A).
-- GeoRover() and GRGlobe. GeoRover products provide powerful tools for
Esri ArcGIS for desktop designed to increase speed, efficiency, and
productivity in common geographic information system (GIS) workflows
including one application available for Android™ mobile devices
(tablets or phones). The GRGlobe™ application brings enhanced GIS
capabilities to the Google Earth™ globe providing the ability to
create, edit, and visualize GIS data natively while supporting multiple
formats such as KML, shapefile, and geodatabase.
-- ISR CrossCue (IXQ), an automated collaboration tool that allows
warfighters and analysts to rapidly discover and connect with critically
needed expertise across the intelligence community. Warfighters and
analysts use dynamically-created, secure collaboration rooms to discuss
their objective or problem set, with the capability to post files and
links in addition to text. IXQ provides analysts and tactical customers
with an unparalleled ability to rapidly discover and leverage subject
matter expertise.
-- HR3DGI (High Resolution Three Dimensional Geospatial Information), the
collection, processing, and dissemination of extremely high resolution
terrain foundation data that is critical to the execution of
humanitarian, disaster relief, tactical, and special operations
missions. It consists of multiple collection systems that have supported
numerous operations over the last 10 years on multiple manned and
unmanned airborne platforms.
-- IBISS (Integrated Building Interior Surveillance System) provides
building interior situational awareness (layout, location and movement
of occupants) prior to mission engagement. It collects through wall
radar data using a combination of drive-by and airborne assets and
processes it to reconstruct the 3-D interior structure of buildings and
track dismounts moving inside them. The output 3-D Building Situation
Model (BSM) can be used for pre-mission rehearsal and planning as well
in-mission support.
-- CMIS (The CUTS MASINT Integrated Display) collects, integrates and
displays multiple See Through The Wall (STTW) sensors to create complete
presentation of all of the information for the interior and exterior of
the structure of interest.

Cyber Solution:

-- Secure Mobile Framework for Android - Using the secure Android™
framework, employers can protect sensitive corporate information and
process it safely on their employees' Android mobile phones and tablets.
By implementing this secure framework, users can transmit data securely,
toggle between encrypted and non-encrypted mobile environments, download
applications, and work productively from any location to include the
office, home or field communicating through various transmission
mediums, such as cellular, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and the Internet.
-- Deep Dynamic Attribution Management (DDAM) - Provides an overview of
Leidos's DDAM system, which allows a user to manage online attribution
by rapidly or adaptively changing apparent identity, location, and/or
