PROTECTING $1.8 trillion of maritime commerce. Leidos developed a semi-autonomous 130-foot ship, Sea Hunter, to track a new class of cheap, virtually silent submarines. Sea Hunter can be at sea for months, helping keep shipping lanes and shores safe, without a single sailor on board.
DEVELOPING new vaccine candidates for malaria, Zika, HIV and other diseases using a “virtual pharma” approach for customers. Leidos drafts a vaccine project and brings together commercial biotech and university labs to create new vaccines for clinical trials.
KEEPING air travel safe and efficient. The number of people using the civil aviation system is set to double within 10 years. Leidos is helping airports enhance the travel experience, optimize terminals, and protect against unidentified threats—like drones—in their airspace.
PREVENTING dangerous cargo and contraband from crossing borders without slowing down commerce. Leidos invented VACIS, a real-time, full-vehicle scanning system to speed inspection and increase security at border crossings —monitoring U.S. ports with 1,200 radiation portals.
