Leidos has readied its lineup of command-control and cyber solutions for exhibition at a three-day Association of the United States Army event that opens in Washington, D.C., on Monday.

The products on show at the 2014 AUSA Annual Meeting and Exposition will include the Reston, Virginia-based contractor’s array of advanced cybersecurity systems, such as the Digital Echo online content analysis tool and the Computer Attack and Exploitation Network, or CAEN, virtual environment, Leidos said Wednesday.

Users can engage in CAEN to practice malware reverse engineering, vulnerability research and other cyber skills.

The company will also showcase its DeHavilland Dash 8 aircrew readiness training solution, as well as other products on its command and control, intelligence systems and mission solutions portfolio.

A demonstration of some of the products, including the Global Monitoring & Planning Systems intelligence systems solution, will be held in Booth #851, Hall A, and Booth #3613, Hall C, of the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.

GLIMPS works to acquire mined data to make connections from various indicators to come up with forecasts about a region’s stability up to five years in advance, a tool mission planners can use for resource allocation or crisis response preparation, Leidos said.

“AUSA provides an opportunity to show our ongoing commitment to the Army and demonstrate the full spectrum of our capabilities to support the next generation of missions in keeping our nation protected,” said Lou Von Thaer, president of the national security sector at Leidos.
