Leidos Awarded Contract to Support UK MOD PICASSO programme

LONDON, Nov. 10, 2021 — (PRNewswire) —   Leidos (NYSE: LDOS), a FORTUNE® 500 science and technology leader, was recently awarded a three-year (with optional 4th year) contract by the MOD (worth up to £70M with all options) to deliver GEOINT capability in support of the UK's National Centre for Geospatial Intelligence as part of the PICASSO programme. 

PICASSO is an enduring capability programme that provides UK Defence with an integrated information environment for the exploitation, production and dissemination of geospatial intelligence (GEOINT)1. PICASSO outputs enable UK Armed Forces and Partners across Government (PAG) to undertake informed decision making to fulfil their role in a safe and legal manner in support of national security tasks. A collection of legacy systems, the programme is gradually being moved to a common service management model delivered with industry standard approaches to service management, agile development and delivery.

Through this award, Leidos will introduce a number of modernisation initiatives to improve service delivery, user experience, agile change and overall programme transparency.  Specifically modernising infrastructure, storage and end user access will be carried out in an agile manner, in collaboration with the MoD's internal service provider community.

"We're proud to continue our support of the UK and Five eyes community – providing innovations and deploying efficient and effective capabilities and technologies," said Simon Fovargue, Chief Executive, Leidos UK & Europe. "By leveraging our technical, engineering and software expertise, our teams will work to advance the MOD's agile and modernization efforts, providing our nation's leaders, military and allies with actionable intelligence and critical information to protect and defend our military, government and international partners."
