Digital technologies empower smart utilities
As utilities transform their enterprises to meet modernization goals, they create opportunities for greater operational excellence. This new digital reality supports multiple goals – whether better serving ratepayers, ensuring reliability and safety, managing costs, or providing exceptional customer service.
Leidos uses digital, physical, and logical data to better understand connected customer needs and grid impacts, from outage optimization to distributed generation profiles and safety challenges. We help forward-thinking utilities secure critical systems, modernize infrastructure, and gain operational efficiencies through data collection, fusion, and analytics.
Our core service areas encompass:
- Digital asset management
- Smart grid & analytics
- Infrastructure modernization
- Advanced communications

Utilities want a single version of truth when it comes to the location of system assets and the management of the vegetation surrounding those assets. LiDAR and GIS are helpful tools, but do not provide the precise level of information or accuracy that enable condition-based decision-making, rather than cycle-based.
Leidos leverages large-scale, precise, and detailed data capture and processing technologies to support a variety of asset-related programs for utilities, including vegetation management. We are the exclusive North American partner for Roames(R) technology. Originally developed by a utility to provide reliable vegetation and asset management, Roames technology allows a utility to remotely investigate the condition and performance of their overhead line network in order to optimize vegetation maintenance programs.
Transform utility data into actionable insights
The utility industry is in transition. As the confluence of information technology and operations technology creates new possibilities, utilities are looking to move from traditional approaches to implementing technologies that enable digital empowerment for smart utilities, customers, and communities.
