RESTON, Va., May 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Leidos (NYSE: LDOS), a FORTUNE® 500 science and technology leader, will showcase its innovative solutions and capabilities for U.S. naval forces during the 2019 Sea-Air-Space Exposition May 6-8 in National Harbor, Md. Leidos will have a series of demos each day at booth #1823 on the topics such as autonomy, artificial intelligence/machine learning, enterprise and cyber solutions.

The company will present Sea Hunter, the autonomous, unmanned vessel developed with the Office of Naval Research. This presentation will provide a brief overview of the program and vessel, maritime autonomy architecture, behaviors, and missions, and recent efforts in autonomous surveying and logistics. The Leidos R/V Pathfinder vessel, the test platform for Sea Hunter, will also be presented.

Leidos experts will summarize the newest technology to innovate and apply agnostic Agile development and DevSecOps processes. Attendees can view a live demonstration of the Leidos Enterprise Application Framework, known as LEAF, which enables rapid prototyping and delivery of new applications.

The company will also showcase its framework for incorporating artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms into existing systems and data models called Microservices Architecture for Pluggable Environments (MAPLE). Experts will show a demo of how MAPLE enables system upgrades as fast as new algorithms are devised, which is critical for algorithmic warfare requirements.

Other demos include: how Leidos provides direct support to the Navy's surface and submarine Towed Array Sensor systems; range and radar development and logistics; life-cycle systems engineering for the Tomahawk program; a maritime communications support data link; a portable geolocation system; and the company's cloud capabilities.
