Leidos LIVE Immersive Technology Lab makes first national stop at NPS

Housed in an 18-wheeled tractor trailer, the Leidos LIVE mobile technology display consisting of virtual and interactive workstations showing the Leidos Corporation’s current developments in various defense-related fields arrived on campus for a demonstration to faculty and students, Feb 18.

As NPS students and faculty took a virtual trek to Antarctica, disarmed mines to protect a military convoy, deployed unmanned surface vehicles (USVs) to crisis zones at sea, and drove a virtual Humvee, they had the opportunity to experience how Leidos technology could potentially align with their research or help develop thesis topics.

“It was really interesting to hear more detail about how [Leidos] is implementing cybersecurity, especially with USVs,” said Lt. Cmdr. Amanda Eckert, an NPS student studying Cyber Systems and Operations. “We’re currently looking at cyber challenges for the Navy, so it was interesting to see and hear what they had today.”

According to U.S. Navy Capt. Chuck Good, NPS’ Surface Warfare Chair, this demonstration also allowed NPS to perform an information exchange with a potential industry partner which could promote discussions or efforts regarding parallel lines of research at NPS.

NPS marked the first stop in the company’s cross-country “Leidos LIVE” 2020 tour as it plans to stop at colleges and events across the country.
